Our Network & Services

SingAREN Open Exchange (SOE) interconnects Singapore’s research and education community to the international Research and Education Networks including Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East and the U.S., ranging from bandwidths between 1 Gbps to 100 Gbps.

Besides advanced internet connectivity, SingAREN offers value-added services: eduroam, Singapore Access Federation (SGAF) and Database Mirroring.

SingAREN facilitates high-speed transfers of large datasets across international boundaries for scientific research, and enables advanced network technology demonstrations through its resilient international links and high-speed fiber network.

Why choose


SingAREN’s differentiating factor from the commodity network providers is its bilateral peering arrangements with international research and education networks (RENs). Through SingAREN Open Exchange (SOE), interconnections with RENs are established in other countries at a quality of service not generally possible nor available with commodity internet.
