Cyberlink fast-tracks Anapaya partnership to serve the SSFN

The partnership will enable new opportunities for secure, flexible and highly available corporate connectivity.

Cyberlink, a Swiss-based Internet (ISP) and Managed Service Provider (MSP), has partnered with Anapaya. The partnership between the two companies will combine the expertise of Cyberlink’s network infrastructure implementation with the innovative SCiON solution.

Cyberlink is focusing on Connectivity and Cloud infrastructure with over 25 years of market experience, exclusively for business customers. They have maintained the highest BILANZ Telecom rating in the ISP and corporate network categories for the last four years.

As a completely network independent, Cyberlink’s focus is entirely on the customer’s needs. They combine infrastructure from different carriers with a suitable network technology to build the best-fitting solution, managed by Cyberlink as a single point of contact (SPOC).

The timing for Anapaya’s innovative SCiON-based solution and Cyberlink’s objectives was perfect. The technology immediately fit into their need for a secure, reliable and flexible means to connect. Based on this, the companies wasted no time in forming a partnership.

“We see great innovation potential in SCiON. This is because SCiON fundamentally changes the network architecture and provides business critical features ‘out of the box’”, said Thomas Knüsel, COO of Cyberlink. “This avoids building such features on higher network layers with much more complexity involved.”

The partnership will see Cyberlink become a SCiON provider, offering an exciting alternative to their major competitors. They will be able to provide carrier redundant SCiON services combined with best-in-class service management, acting as the single point of contact.

“Cyberlink demonstrates the heights of what a Swiss tech company can achieve”, said Martin Bosshardt, CEO of Anapaya. “We are enthusiastic about the partnership and look forward to our continued collaboration in taking the Swiss tech sector to the world stage.”

Cyberlink plans to play an active role in the development of the SCiON ecosystem from an infrastructural perspective. They have already started the carrier onboarding process with SIX for the SSFN, with the aim to demonstrate their core competencies as a focused Business Connectivity Provider and a SCiON provider in other SCiON ISDs.
