Deutsche Telekom Opens New IP PoP in Hong Kong
BONN, Germany & HONG KONG --(Business Wire)--
Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale
division of Deutsche
Telekom AG, is announcing the launch of a new point of presence
(PoP) in Hong Kong. Based on ICSS's Next Generation Voice international
(NGVi) platform, this move expands the company's reach in the Asia
Pacific region by providing fast and reliable voice connectivity to
Europe and the United States as well as within Asia. In addition, it
lays the groundwork for future development of the Asian voice market.
Hong Kong continues to evolve as a leading global business hub, thus
requiring expansion of reliable telecommunication services. The new PoP
fulfills that need while reducing transmission distances and latency.
Furthermore it supports all major IP protocols. ICSS's strong sales
force located in Hong Kong and Singapore will be there to serve
customers' needs for high-quality termination. ICSS aims to double its
market share in Asia within three years.
"I believe this is a clear signal of our intention to serve not only
western markets, but allmarkets across the globe," says Holger
Magnussen, Senior Vice President Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) International Carrier
Sales & Solutions. "At ICSS, we see great growth potential in the
Asia-Pacific region, and we will persist in helping regional clients
expand their business opportunities."
