Global Cloud Xchange (GCX) and CMC Telecom has announced a dual strategic initiative, wherein GCX will offer its IP transit solutions to CMC Telecom in Hong Kong and Singapore, while CMC Telecom will deploy a Virtual Point of Presence (vPoP) for GCX in Hanoi.
This strategic arrangement will enable GCX to expand its network reach in Indochina and leverage CMC Telecom’s network to deliver low-latency and secure connectivity solutions for its customers. CMC Telecom, in turn, will get access to GCX’s high-performance IP Transit global network.
“South-East Asia is a key growth market for GCX, and building our presence in Vietnam fills an important gap in that strategy. We are very pleased to have CMC Telecom as our partner, with its nimbleness and customer-focused attitude,” said Fabrizio Civitarese, president of Asia Pacific, GCX.
Dang Tung Son, peputy CEO, CMC Telecom said, “We are delighted to partner with GCX as it offers unmatched global cable assets and low-latency connectivity to major global and regional entities. GCX will be an important partner to support CMC Telecom’s goal to become a key regional provider.”
Combining GCX’s global sub-sea cable and terrestrial networks with the strength and skills of CMC Telecom in its local market will provide enhanced coverage and diversity options to many organizations. This innovative partnership will further solidify the foundation for both companies to provide additional value added services across the fastest-growing economies in Asia.
