Hutchison Global Communications, the fixed-line division of Hutchison Telecommunications Hong Kong Holdings, partners with Cisco to launch WiseNET using the Metro Ethernet Forum Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (MEF CE 2.0) platform. Cisco says that the newly launched service will provide speedy, highly-secure and reliable service that satisfies the most stringent network demands of high-end customers and enhances business effectiveness. The WiseNET enables cloud service providers to offer services to their end customers in a very short space of time simply by connecting their networks to WiseNET. WiseNET also supports voice and data application visibility, enabling customers to analyse the bandwidth utilisation by application types and facilitate more effective use of bandwidth resources. Using the WiseNET customers can establish point-to-point (E-Line), any-to-any (E-LAN) and point-to-multipoint (E-Tree) network architecture simultaneously.
HGC Managing Director Jennifer Tan said: "HGC's optical-fibre backbone network has been providing a high-speed, low-latency network service to customers for some time now. However, we are delighted that we are now collaborating with Cisco, the worldwide leader in IT, to launch the cutting edge WiseNET network. This not only meets the strict network requirements of data centres, cloud service providers and enterprises, enhance customers' business effectiveness, but also consolidates our strengths in providing a more powerful and diverse network service."
Barbara Chiu, Managing Director, Cisco Hong Kong and Macau said, "HGC, as a forward-looking service provider, has deployed Cisco's MEF CE 2.0 certified ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Routers in conjunction with its optical backbone network to launch the groundbreaking WiseNET service. The service delivers a high-speed, reliable and highly intelligent network for high-end enterprise customers, as well as data centre and cloud service providers, to address their current and future demands.
