StarHub embarking on ‘Cloud Infinity’ network transformation

18 Jan 2023

Singapore’s second largest telecoms operator by subscriptions and revenues, StarHub, has revealed it is deploying a hybrid cloud-based platform as part of a major network transformation initiative designed to allow it to keep pace with the needs of the residential, SME and corporate/enterprise markets. The initiative, named Cloud Infinity, reportedly builds upon the company’s previously announced five-year, SGD40 million (USD30.3 million) DARE+ transformation programme.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate the operator said that its original DARE initiative (commenced October 2018) had revolutionised its structure as it progresses plans to become a ‘digital-first and agile platform’, and in November 2021 it outlined the next phase of transformation, DARE+, spanning the period 2022-2026. Under DARE+, StarHub is rolling out a hybrid cloud architecture that will enable it to launch sovereign cloud services, among other capabilities, it said.

Commenting on the development, StarHub CTO Ayush Sharma said: ‘Having embarked on DARE+ in 2021, we have reached the point where we are no longer just achieving project milestones but going beyond to set new benchmarks for the entire industry … Maximising agility, Cloud Infinity will serve as a cradle of innovation for our enterprise and consumer businesses, allowing us to deliver the market’s most unique, meaningful and enriching products and services with speed and reliability.’
