This prestigious recognition follows Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis of the connectivity solutions market. PCCW Global delivers various layers of critical infrastructure to SSA, including fibre and satellite transmission, Internet transit services, MPLS and Ethernet connectivity, and also aggressively facilitates meshed IPX networks which have enabled the use of voice over IPX (VoIPX). This is a significant move in the region, as this service ensures improved service quality for its customers.
‘PCCW Global is a leader in the provision of robust fibre connectivity through its partial ownership in the undersea cables connecting Africa to the rest of the world,’ said Frost & Sullivan research analyst Ms. Vivienne Mutembwa. ‘It has created a fibre ring around Africa by connecting the East Coast and the West Coast undersea cables through the Teraco data centres in South Africa, thereby establishing an integrated first-in-class VoIPX network.’
