pccw-global-logoHKT (SEHK:6823) – HONG KONG, November 15, 2016 – PCCW Global is delighted that our continued focus on delivering innovative and highly reliable services has been recognized yet again on an international level on two recent occasions.

These innovations are part of an ongoing programme of strategic developments which continues to demonstrate PCCW Global’s ability to deliver digital solutions globally whilst maintaining our all-important passion for service excellence.

Chosen from over 200 entries, PCCW Global won the Best Unified Communications Innovation Award at the Global Carrier Awards held on November 8 in Paris. We were recognized for innovation for the provision of an international UCaaS platform which enables full automation of all elements from “lead to cash”, affording service providers and their enterprise customers complete transparency and control over their unified communications services. These services are designed to enable service providers to extend their offerings into new markets and to build new and profitable revenue streams.

The winners were decided by a panel of more than 20 judges, which included leading analysts and industry experts, aided by a new scoring system which ensured that decisions regarding both the shortlists and the winners remained both objective and transparent.

Also, for the second consecutive year, PCCW Global has been awarded with the Best Global Wholesale Service Provider at the 2016 MEF Excellence Awards held in Baltimore, Maryland. The Awards recognize service, application, technology, and professional excellence and innovation in the global Third Network community. The MEF awards program is the largest in the world, focused on advanced Carrier Ethernet services and emerging Third Network services powered by CE2.0, LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), NFV, and SDN networking technologies.

PCCW Global’s network has recently been certified to offer all CE2.0 services and has now achieved historical milestones such as being the first CE2.0 certified network to offer services across continental boundaries and to offer 100Gbps services.
