The Australian wholesale network provider forges ahead with the premium China direct route, striving for high performance internet connectivity across continents
China Telecom Global (CTG), one of the world’s largest providers of integrated telecommunication services, has been selected by Anycast Networks, a leading Australian wholesale network provider offering IP transit and virtual ISP services, to provide highly efficient IP routing solutions that address the rising demands for meetings and communications from global businesses. The partnership will allow Anycast Networks to enjoy premium direct routes to China, along with widely available applications and better end-user experiences.
With China being Australia’s largest trading partner, it is crucial that the two markets share reliable, high performance internet connectivity so businesses using Anycast Networks’ IP services are adequately supported. At the same time, consumers in Australia also have a demand for low latency and quick response time from their ISPs for a more engaging experience with online entertainment, including gaming and watching videos, where China has strong presence. As Anycast Networks constantly looks at where its customers traffic originates and actively seeks out more efficient routing to enhance its IP services, the company believes that CTG, a global player with abundant resources in China, is the right partner to improve global routing efficiency.
“Anycast Networks has always strived to build the best network we can,” said Tom Berryman, CEO, Anycast Networks. “Our partnership with China Telecom Global will certainly result in a more efficient global network for our growing customer base.”
China Telecom has 200 overseas PoPs, and more than 55.4T of capacity in international connectivity bandwidth. By tapping into its own nationwide network, and over 550 IDCs in China, Anycast Networks will strengthen its network build-out and provide world-class, low-latency connectivity to customers.
“Our strong footprint in China allows us to provide premium China access, perfectly suited to fast-growing network service providers, such as Anycast Networks, to enhance their network efficiency while exploring new opportunities,” said Wu Xiaolei, Vice President, China Telecom Global. “We are perfectly positioned to be a partner for internet connectivity, enabling operators worldwide to provide top-notch services for their clients.”
