HONG KONG, May 8, 2007 - PCCW subsidiary PCCW Global said today it was focused on addressing market demand among enterprises wanting advanced IP solutions, especially in China’s booming manufacturing industry, as companies migrate their traditional infrastructure to IP networks.
PCCW Global Chief Executive Officer Dan Lovatt said: “Enterprises value flexible bandwidth allocation to support operational and business applications. Our IP-VPN services are addressing this demand, as more enterprises expand their regional network in Asia, particularly in China.”
“Companies are demanding a scalable platform with quick upgrade flexibility, which offers better cost efficiency and accommodates ad-hoc business requirements. PCCW Global does this on a flexible, reliable and secure network,” Mr. Lovatt said.
