10 July 2006, Hong Kong: Orange Business Services - Trading Solutions (formerly Etrali), the leading provider of unified communications solutions to the trading community, has today announced that it is expanding its Asia Pacific network capabilities by upgrading its Hong Kong Point of Presence (PoP). The upgrade will allow its Asian customers to connect through its network.
This upgrade follows the successful strategy and steady growth of Orange Business Services – Trading Solutions’ network services in Asia Pacific.
The upgrade will mean that Orange Business Services – Trading Solutions’ clients will now be able to work with a single, trusted partner that can cater to all their access needs worldwide. It will also allow them access to their remote sites and customers significantly faster than before and with Orange Business Services – Trading Solutions’ high levels of customer service.
“The PoP upgrade will bring the latest network technology to our clients in Asia. Our POP uses ATM technology which provides very high transmission speeds to transport voice, legacy and proprietary protocols across the wide area network. ATM Constant Bit Rate (CBR) delivers the best ATM performance, as it guarantees data throughput and minimal delay. It is a cost-effective replacement for leased lines that support voice, video, and data applications. We can now expand even further our capacity in Hong Kong,” says David Guerineau, Singapore-based Operations and Professional Services APAC director.
The facility has the capacity to address analogue and digital voice circuits, and can support data services ranging from 64k to 45 megabits.
Orange Business Services – Trading Solutions is dedicated to working closely with its clients in Asia, and is keen to ensure that its growth and development in the region is in step with customers’ requirements and expectations for the future. It is looking to add further sites across the region. “We currently have Points of Presence in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Taipei, and we are actively working on further additions to that network,” Guerineau concludes.
