Deutsche Telekom adds new PoP in Hong Kong

Deutsche Telekom has added a new point of presence (PoP) in Hong Kong to expand its reach in the Asia Pacific region.

The new PoP will be based on International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international wholesale division of Deutsche Telekom.

Deutsche Telekom said the new development will improve voice connectivity to Europe and the United States as well as within Asia. In addition, it lays the groundwork for future development of the Asian voice market.

The new PoP reduces transmission distances and latency. Furthermore, it supports all major IP protocols. ICSS’s strong sales force located in Hong Kong and Singapore will be there to serve customers’ needs for termination. ICSS aims to double its market share in Asia within three years.

“I believe this is a clear signal of our intention to serve not only western markets, but all markets across the globe,” said Holger Magnussen, senior vice president Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions.
