14 May 2015

Hong Kong-based PCCW Global, China Telecom Global and Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom International have signed agreements to facilitate the interconnection of their respective IPX networks to establish a unified IPX platform spanning Greater China with the aim of providing ‘seamlessly integrated’ services to their carrier, multinational and consumer customers. Services supported will include VoIPX, GRX, Diameter, HD calling, HD video conferencing, Ethernet, cloud offerings and SDN, and the platform will connect IP services between mobile and fixed networks using MPLS as the transport layer.

PCCW Global’s IPX is a next-generation platform built to support the future needs of fixed and mobile service providers. It enables guaranteed end-to-end delivery of high-quality voice and mobile data services via one converged port. An extensive network spanning 140 countries provides PCCW Global with a presence in 3,000 cities, including the growth markets of Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Central & Eastern Europe. It has the most directly connected IPX-compliant connections in the world.

China Telecom Global’s IPX (CTG IPX) is a secure next-generation private IP network that carries multiple IP services and interconnections as a wholesale hub with end-to-end Quality-of-Service (QoS) measures designed to meet demands of the future. Multiple services including voice, 2G/3G/4G roaming and signaling are provided via one port. CTG IPX is built on China Telecom’s leading MPLS network, which covers 312 cities in mainland China plus nearly 130 countries further afield.

Chunghwa Telecom International’s IPX is an advanced multiple-services platform based on a next-generation IP network and delivered via MPLS technology. It combines single private IP networks by interconnecting with network operators and service providers. The end result is delivery of IP-based services such as voice, data, video, messaging and signaling – all via the same link. Customers therefore enjoy flexible bandwidth at low cost, plus premium quality based on end-to-end QoS.
