With two major hubs in Hong Kong and Singapore, i-STT’s mission statement asserts that they aim to “facilitate global businesses in competing effectively and efficiently in the Net Economy through our extensive e-business infrastructure and innovative IP-centric services and solutions.”
To achieve this they provide a complete range of Internet infrastructure solutions and hosting capabilities around the three key focus areas of WebCenter Services, Mobility and Global Network Services (GNS).
In WebCenter Services, their tier 1 hubs are designed with security and redundancy built into every component. They come equipped with intrusion detection and monitoring tools, firewalls, VPNs, video camera surveillance, security breach alarms and stringent smart card access controls for 24x7 secured access. An on-site technical team manages them - so customers can focus on running their core business competencies, leaving the rest to i-STT.
One of the more popular services provided by i-STT include co-location housing, but this is by no means everything. Charges are unique to the services required by the customer and work on a ‘services-on-demand basis’. Managed hosting and infrastructure outsourcing services is a new offering that they believe will address demand from corporate customers.
The company also unveiled its advanced monitoring service that enables measurement and analysis of service levels from the user’s perspective. This tracks the performance of Internet services and devices connected to the network to provide the user with information on performance levels, potential problems and unexpected events even before they happen.
This access to real-time, web-based performance and availability reports is available to users to enable more accurate capacity planning and performance management without having high initial investment costs in infrastructure and allows them to monitor their systems round-the-clock all for a monthly fee.
