Hong Kong Broadband Network Spearheads Next-Generation Internet Network With Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System

HONG KONG, Jan. 26, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cisco and Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited (HKBN), a wholly-owned subsidiary of City Telecom (HK) Limited (HKSE:1137) (Nasdaq:CTEL), today announced a pioneering move in Asia. HKBN, a leading service provider, has committed to the Cisco® CRS-3 Carrier Routing System as the foundation for its core Internet Protocol Next-Generation Network (IP NGN) to cope with the surging trend of bandwidth demand and to extend its network coverage.

According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index, annual global IP traffic will exceed three-quarters of a zettabyte by 2014. Internet utilization by various forms of video such as TV, video on demand, Internet video, etc. is increasing and is expected to exceed 91 percent of global consumer traffic by 2014. To cope with this rapidly growing demand, HKBN, a forward-thinking service provider, realizes the need for a core router with strong investment protection to support its world-class voice, video and Internet services. HKBN believes that, with the Cisco CRS-3's industry-leading scale, operating efficiency and superior service features, it can be assured of maintaining its "Speed Guarantee" to customers, whereby 80 percent steady speed is ensured amid the escalating Internet demands of businesses and consumers.
