Telstra Global PoPs up in Taiwan
Telstra Global has added two new on-net points of presence (PoPs) in Taiwan, enhancing network capacity in the Asia PacificBy Shiwen Yap 26 Jun, 2014
Bernadette Noujaim Baldwin, Telstra Global’s Head of Connectivity and Platforms Portfolio, stated that the launch of these sites in Taiwan meant that Telstra customers could now access more than 2,000 PoPs worldwide across 230 countries and territories.
A strategic move, the new PoPs are located close to telco’s headquarter in Hong Kong. The move acknowledges Taiwan’s status as an epicentre for the Asian export sector, its established strengths as an electronics hub and a crucial link in the global supply chain for major electronics brands worldwide.
These new PoPs – connected to Telstra Global’s network backbone – address the growing demand for connectivity into and within the Asia Pacific. This will allow the multinational organisations, who compose the majority of its clientele, an added competitive advantage in global operations.
The new PoPs and associated infrastructure will be monitored from Telstra Global’s Network Operation Centre in Clayton, Victoria. This will allow clients to resolve matters effectively during times of issue resolution and performance management.
“When you combine the new PoPs with the licence we secured recently to operate and sell telecommunications carrier services to both multinational and carrier customers within Taiwan, we are well placed to help global organisations gain greater competitive advantage in Taiwan and connect with growth opportunities in the broader Asian market too. These new PoPs were delivered within four months, which demonstrates our focus and ability to expand rapidly to best support our customers’ requirements for flexibility and reach in an ever-changing business environment,” said Baldwin.
