27 Apr 2011

Hong Kong’s PCCW Global and Thai telco CAT Telecom have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a strategic cooperation following CAT’s recent establishment of a Point of Presence (PoP) in Hong Kong. The two companies will explore opportunities for cooperation in telecoms services to support demand from customers with needs to connect Thailand, Hong Kong and the rest of the world. Stephen Pang, PCCW Global’s Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific, said, ‘PCCW Global and CAT will jointly provide high quality international connectivity via diversified submarine cable systems to ensure full resilience and seamless connections to our customers from enterprises, governments, and other market sectors.’ Sompol Chanprasert, CAT’s Senior Executive Vice President of Broadband Business, said, ‘CAT offers a full range of data communication solutions including domestic leased circuits, MPLS and Ethernet technology. This is very important in serving our customer’s connectivity needs from Thailand to Hong Kong and beyond. Hong Kong is not only Asia’s financial and trading hub, but also the gateway into mainland China. This strategic agreement with PCCW Global enables CAT to provide international data communications into the global arena.’
