PCCW Global, Keppel launch ICX in HK

07 Apr 2017

Hong Kong based PCCW Global has teamed up with Keppel Data Centres to launch a joint international carrier exchange (ICX) in Hong Kong.

The PCCW Global-Keppel International Carrier Exchange has more than 7,800 square feet of dedicated network facility management space.

It is located in the same building as the Hong Kong point of presence for the Asia-Africa-Europe 1 (AAE-1) subsea cable and connects to the subsea cable landing station of Hong Kong hyper scale data centers via PCCW Global parent HKT's extensive domestic fiber network.

PCCW Global and Keppel Data Centres entered into a long-term agreement covering the development of the ICX last year. It aims to use the region's subsea cable capacity to provide fast and robust connections to Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and North America.

The partners said the initiative is ultimately aimed at addressing the demand for access performance and network security arising from cloud services, big data, and rich media in business critical applications

“We are very pleased to see the exciting ICX opening which highlights our very positive relationship with (Keppel Data Centres parent company) Keppel T&T,” PCCW Global CEO Marc Halbfinger said.

“Our customers and carrier partners now have more low-latency Hong Kong Island choice in accessing digital solutions for responding to the increasing cloud adoption in the region.”
