Singtel collaborates with NVIDIA to bring AI to Southeast Asia

Feb 2024

Singaporean telecommunications conglomerate Singtel has just joined the NVIDIA Partner Network Cloud Programme and will bring NVIDIA’s full-stack AI platform to enterprises across the Southeast Asian region. Singtel’s NVIDIA-powered AI Cloud will be hosted by Singtel’s Nxera regional data centre business, which will be developing a new generation of sustainable, hyper-connected AI-ready data centers.

Singtel’s upcoming hyper-connected green 58MW DC Tuas in Singapore will be one of the first data centers that will be AI ready when it comes into operation in early 2026. DC Tuas will offer a high- density environment suited for AI workloads and will operate at a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.23 at full load, making it one of the most efficient in the industry. Besides DC Tuas, Singtel is developing two other state-of-the-art data center projects in Indonesia and Thailand. The NVIDIA GPU clusters will run in existing upgraded data center initially and can be further expanded into the new AI DCs when they are ready for service.

Singtel has had experience in delivering edge cloud services with NVIDIA AI, having trialed GPU services at the 5G@Sentosa testbed for many government agencies since 2021. Singtel’s patented Paragon platform will also enable customers to orchestrate, manage and deploy their various networks, AI and cloud workloads across multiple providers with greater efficiency and at lower costs.

This collaboration supports Singapore’s national AI strategy designed to spur the next phase of economic development by empowering its citizens and businesses with the latest technology. The plan calls for growing the country’s compute infrastructure as well as its specialist pool of AI talent.
