20 November 2017 | Francis Prince Thangasamy, Vice President, IT Services & Managed Hosting, Asia Pacific

Level 3 Communications has combined with CenturyLink, forming one of the largest network services companies in the world. We expect customers in Asia Pacific will benefit from our extended network reach, broader solutions portfolio, and more secure connectivity. 

A new CenturyLink has emerged!

I’m very happy to announce that we’ve successfully completed our acquisition of Level 3 Communications, one of the world’s premier global communications providers. By combining our strengths, a myriad of possibilities arise for our customers in the region.

The new CenturyLink is now one of the largest global network services companies in the world. We offer enterprises networking solutions—from local to global. Our product portfolio has become more expansive and innovative. All these are being supported by a highly talented workforce that is dedicated to offering the best solutions and service experiences to our customers. Enterprise challenges will continue to be our focus and we are committed to deploying secure and reliable technologies that help customers connect with a rapidly digitizing Asia Pacific, where numerous companies are leading the world in digital transformation maturity according to 451 Research

Deliver seamless IT experiences anytime, anywhere

The combined company can now support the digital programs of our new and existing customers with a large-scale, fibre-rich global network. The region is in a digital transformation fever. For instance, the Thai government has ramped up its transformation efforts into Thailand 4.0 and Indonesia’s annual economic growth via digital is projected to hit USD150 billion by 2025. Meanwhile, Singapore continues its rapid journey to become a digital economy. Our solutions and managed services will enable customers to enjoy and deliver seamless IT experiences in Asia Pacific and around the world, allowing them to achieve their digital transformation goals. 

Accelerate business growth

Enterprises can now take advantage of our broader portfolio of network solutions and advanced IT services. On top of our already-existing cloud solutions, managed hosting, colocation, and IT services, the combined company now has Cloud Connect and content delivery network solutions. Now, enterprises can scale rapidly, reliably, and flexibly into the cloud, helping them to grow their offerings and market share. They can also more effectively engage with customers and keep them satisfied, which is no small task in this connected, content-driven business landscape.

Enhance security for digital transformation

Digital transformation and cybersecurity go hand-in-hand. Hence, we are combining Level 3 Communications’ network-based security with CenturyLink’s global threat intelligence and risk-based approach. By implementing our solutions, customers can seal network infrastructure, applications, and data from evolving attacks with holistic, multi-layered protection. This is powered by a constant feed of actionable insights from CenturyLink’s global network. This will give enterprises the visibility and capability to prioritize and protect organizational assets based on varying levels of risk.

The new CenturyLink empowers customers to embark on bigger and bolder digital transformations. We are thrilled to be on this journey. I’m hopeful that our customers and prospects will think the same. To learn more about the new CenturyLink, please visit Level3IsNowCenturyLink.com
