Network Hub, Data Center to Address Growing Demand of Asia-Pacific Businesses
HONG KONG – Verizon Business is strengthening its extensive Asia-Pacific network
Touting its major-league infrastructure spending, Verizon Business (www.verizonbusiness.com) announced it is opening up a second data center in Hong Kong. The new facility will “enhance” Verizon’s ability to deliver new and data center services in the region, as well as provide direct access to Verizon’s global network.
All of this comes about to meet the growing demand of the company’s enterprise customers, multi-nationals who need the capacity to expand into greater China and the rest of the Asia-Pacific region.
The investment is only a part of the $16.8 billion to $17.2 billion that Verizon plans to spend this year in building and operating its network and computing platform.
Located in the iTech Tower in Tsuen Wan, the 3,000 square meter facility features ROADAM technology and interconnections with the four main local carries and a new Private IP node to extend Verizon’s metro network footprint and direct access to Verizon’s MPLS service.
