PLDT launches Japan service


    PLDT Global Corp. (PGC), through its partnership with US-based digital infra firm Equinix, yesterday launched a new network service offering for enterprise clients in Japan.

    PGC, an international arm of PLDT, is accelerating digital connectivity for enterprises in Japan with the launch of its Points of Presence. A point of presence serves as a gateway or an access point for networks to interconnect.

    By expanding its network services, PGC said it can provide a stronger and wider interconnection service to its international clients.

    “Recognizing recent market developments and the evolving needs of customers, PGC continues to invest in building a stronger global network and new technologies that not only enhance connectivity and widen reach but also create more value for the businesses of its customers,” said Katrina Luna-Abelarde, president and chief executive officer of PGC and head of International Carrier Business.

    Backed by the Carrier Ethernet Network technology, PGC provides data solutions and enables businesses from Japan to interconnect to any part of the world.

    Together with partners SoftBank, China Mobile and Equinix, clients will be able to enjoy more products as well as cloud services; experience faster customer service fulfillment and assistance through operations support; and depend on a resilient and secure connection, PGC said.

    “With PGC’s full suite of end-to-end industry solutions, we are paving the way for faster, safer and stronger connections to expand the reach of enterprises and unlock new business opportunities from Japan to any point in the world,” said Albert Villa-Real, PGC senior vice president and chief commercial officer.

    Aside from Japan, PGC also has physical points of presence in the United Kingdom, United States of America, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines.
