China is the second largest economy in the world with a population of 1.3 billion. As one of its fastest-growing sectors, telecommunications is expected to play a key role in China’s economic future. With a flourishing economy and influx of opportunities, China has also seen a steady growth in the number of multinational companies seeking to expand business within its borders. As a result, the country has experienced dramatic demand for both Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and data center services.
In order to solve the demand for more direct, low-latency connectivity within China, Telstra recently integrated its secure, redundant network with Pacnet Business Solutions China (PBS), offering customers extended service coverage throughout the mainland as well as a direct path to 23 Chinese provinces including Tianjin, Chongquing, Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai. PBS was the first sino-foreign telecommunications joint venture to receive licenses by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), enabling the company to provide IP VPN services and network services in China.
Telstra’s integration with PBS comes on the heels of its April 2015 acquisition of Pacnet Limited, greatly increasing its network reach and data center capabilities in China while also providing the organization with the largest privately owned intra-Asia cable network and advanced Software-defined Networking (SDN) solutions.
