APAC data centre operator Big Data Exchange (BDx) has signed an agreement with China Telecom Corporation Limited (China Telecom) (0728.HK) to take China Telecom’s expanded local, global and trans-China network coverage services to BDx’s Hong Kong facilities HKG1 and HKG2.

China Telecom’s added points of presence (PoPs) in HKG1 and HKG2, will strengthen customers’ rapid digital expansions into leading markets through China Telecom’s network capabilities, including 223 overseas PoPs across 41 countries.

Increasing opportunities for enterprises to expand their international reach is critical within the Hong Kong market, one of the world’s top financial hubs.

This region’s stable economic environment will continue to make it an ideal destination for financial institutions, as well as a growing number of technology companies, all of which require world-class colocation and connectivity.

Bill Lee, Regional Head of Hong Kong and China for BDx, said: “As our customers look to Hong Kong to connect to their customers and meet today’s growing digital requirements, we remain committed to creating partnerships that foster growth in one of Asia-Pacific’s top data centre markets.

“With China Telecom’s network PoPs now in our diverse Hong Kong data centres, our customers can take advantage of accessing unmatched local, global and trans-China network coverage.”

The addition of China Telecom’s services to HKG1 and HKG2 gives customers access to greater redundancy, aiding in their disaster recovery and business continuity efforts, BDx said.

BDx customers will also gain access to all China Telecom services, such as private lines, global internet access and trans-SINO traffic. 

In addition to operating two facilities in Hong Kong, BDx has data centres in Singapore and China and is expanding its footprint into other growing Asia-Pacific markets.
