The newly opened node will serve as a buffer and backup for Converge ICT’s current fiber network, providing better and stronger network resiliency and reliability in case of emergency network downturns, the company said in a statement.

With a direct connection to Google’s largest data center operating in Changhua County in Taiwan, the new node is set to leverage its strategic location to manage and route network traffic for Converge ICT’s consumer and enterprise-level users.

With current nodes already present in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the US, Converge ICT said its new operation in Taiwan secures the maximum usage of parallel paths between these locations, allowing them to seamlessly handle routing convergences and transmission redundancies.

This capability gives the network further stability and strength in the event that load and balance issues occur due to unforeseen circumstances such as environmental accidents or small quakes which affect physical infrastructures.

The deployment is also done in line with the company’s current campaign to attain global-standard technical requirements for reachability and reliability, spreading its network capacities to address any possible points of failure and congestion beforehand.
