According to the Cisco® Visual Networking Index (VNI), an ongoing initiative to track and forecast the impact of visual networking applications, global IP traffic has increased more than fourfold in the past five years, and will increase threefold over the next five. Global IP traffic is expected to reach 120.6 EB per month by 2017, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23% from 2012 to 2017; in Asia-Pacific, that rate will reach 43.4 EB per month by 2017, at a CAGR of 26%. Bandwidth demand throughout Asia-Pacific as well as the rest of the world is growing, generating huge demand for high capacity, low latency optical networks.
In order to fulfill the dynamic requirements of carriers and enterprises that support compute-intensive operations in the APAC region as well as across the globe, Pacnet recently announced the deployment of its 100G-enabled optical mesh network between Asia and the United States on its EAC Pacific fiber optic cable system integrated with Optical Transport Network (OTN) switching over its high-capacity submarine cable systems in Asia-Pacific. The upgrade boosts the company’s bandwidth capacity and scalability, improves quality of service (QoS) with no increase in total cost of ownership (TCO), and enables Pacnet to offer reliable 10G, 40G and 100G network services between key APAC markets including China, India, Japan and the U.S.
Pacnet owns and operates the APAC region’s most extensive high-capacity submarine cable systems, collectively known as EAC Pacific. EAC Pacific, made up of Asia’s largest state-of-the-art fiber optic submarine cable network, EAC-C2C, and trans-Pacific cable system EAC Pacific, combined with Pacnet’s connectivity to robust data center facilities in Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand, give the company unparalleled reach to major business centers across APAC as well as the U.S.

“In August, the GSM Association counted 206 4G-LTE commercially launched networks in 79 countries. With many more in deployment, that’s a rapid take up since the first 4G-LTE networks were launched in Sweden and Norway in 2009.” says Simon Dodsworth, VP Voice & Mobile, TeliaSonera International Carrier.“The key to supporting 4G-users ‘home’ network experience when visiting another mobile network when travelling abroad, is IPX. Yet there is widespread confusion about what IPX actually is.”
Bernd Hoogkamp, Director, Product Management, Voice and Mobile, speaking at the conference said, “With IPX networks and services still being defined, industry analysts have highlighted a considerable lack of understanding around IPX. TeliaSonera International Carrier is home of the TeliaSonera IPX, part of the TeliaSonera group of 17 mobile operators, and talks to interested parties about IPX every day. We want to share and raise the level of understanding to move IPX forward, assembling high quality resources and offering the ability to ask questions to an ‘IPXpert’ panel of experts.
