PCCW Global launches HD video calling

10 Jul 2013

PCCW Global has launched high definition (HD) video calling services, allowing enterprise customers to make direct point-to-point video calls as well as video calls from network-to-network. The HD video calling service, delivered over IPX, is also being offered on a wholesale basis to PCCW Global’s carrier partners. A press release says that ‘for carrier partners, HD video calling is an opportunity to interconnect with PCCW Global and to deliver switched video calling using existing business models developed for the voice market. Their enterprise customers may also enjoy the benefits of HD video calling’. Jordick Wong, PCCW Global’s senior vice president of product and vendor management, said, ‘HD communications is enjoying tremendous growth as enterprises are looking for high-quality but cost-effective communications solutions. Our HD video calling service can deliver the same excellent customer experience with video that carriers have been always delivering for voice via a traditional PSTN system, while providing managed class of service and guaranteed quality.’ PCCW Global is an operating division of Hong Kong’s HKT, which is majority-owned by PCCW Limited. Covering more than 1,800 cities and 120 countries, the PCCW Global network supports a portfolio of integrated global communications solutions which include Ethernet solutions, IP solutions, fibre and satellite transmission solutions, managed services and solutions, and voice over IPX (VoIPX) services.
