Frost & Sullivan Honors Pacnet with 2014 Asia-Pacific Data Communications Product Line Differentiation Award

PacnetCelebrations were in order for leading APAC integrated technology solutions provider Pacnet this past Monday as the company added one more award to its growing list, receiving the Frost & Sullivan 2014 Asia-Pacific Data Communications Product Line Differentiation Award.  The award recognizes Pacnet’s success in creating a differentiated value proposition for its data communications services in the region through the launch of its Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN).

Pacnet F&S Award LogoPacnet received the highest ranking in product differentiation from the research team at Frost & Sullivan, who studied the products and differentiation strategies as well as their alignment with market trends of all the service providers in the APAC data communications market.  Approximately one year ago, Pacnet deployed PEN, an industry-first service platform that leverages Software-defined Networking (SDN) to deliver flexible and scalable bandwidth configurable by customers.  PEN enables customers to cost-effectively, self-provision and configure their network resources instantly as well as control network performance and quality of service.

The availability of pay-per-use computing and storage resources provide greater scalability and flexibility for today’s enterprises.  Through the deployment of its revolutionary Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution, PEN, in the second half of 2013, Pacnet filled a glaring industry void – a lagging network that had not yet caught up with the trend.  NaaS streamlines provisioning network resources, and Pacnet makes the process even simpler by allowing customers to choose duration, bandwidth and latency via an easy-to-use and highly visual self-service portal.  PEN is also backed by Pacnet’s robust infrastructure, including its enterprise-class data centers and the APAC region’s most extensive, privately-owned submarine cable systems.

It is this ability to self-provision point-to-point network resources, define performance characteristics and create virtual links to meet the demands of multiple traffic profiles that gives Pacnet a key differentiator in the APAC data communications market and earns the company this prestigious award.

Jim Fagan, President of Managed Services, Pacnet, commented on the win in a recent press release, stating, “We have reached many successful milestones in our business in the Asia-Pacific region over the past year and have emerged as a category leader through our tailored data center strategies, technology innovations, quality of delivery and exceptional customer experience.  We are delighted that our innovation for data communications solutions such as PEN has been recognized for their ability to drive change and create market differentiations.”
