CDNetworks And HKBN Partner To Enable Customers To Optimize Web Content And Application Performance Across Hong Kong

Stock quotes in this article: CTEL

CDNetworks, the only multinational content delivery network with local expertise and infrastructure inside mainland China and across six continents, today announced a strategic partnership with Hong Kong Broadband Network Limited (HKBN), the fastest growing broadband service provider in Hong Kong. Under the terms of the agreement, HKBN will optimize its international transit links by leveraging CDNetworks’ expanded content delivery network to accelerate web content delivery and application performance. The agreement also broadens the reach of businesses who seek to deliver Web content and applications in a high-performance and cost-efficient manner to Hong Kong’s expanding Internet user population.

With almost 60 million Internet users in Hong Kong alone, the Internet has not only become an important driver behind local trading companies, it has also strengthened the region’s position as a global trading hub. Partnering with CDNetworks enables HKBN to deliver an optimal end-user experience through web performance by collocating content closer to its end users while simultaneously improving network efficiency due to the resultant savings in international bandwidth usage. CDNetworks utilizes best-in-class caching technology to reduce CDN traffic by over 95% for service providers.

“HKBN is the pioneer in launching fiber-based 100Mbps and 1Gbps broadband services in the Hong Kong residential market and places customer experience as its top priority,” said Dick Ip, Associate Director, Business Development at HKBN. “Being the fastest growing broadband service provider in Hong Kong, we continuously strive to deliver the best solutions to our customers. And so, we partnered with CDNetworks to support a seamless Internet surfing experience while protecting our valuable infrastructure for these high-demand users.”

“As the global CDN with the best APAC coverage, CDNetworks has successfully delivered content to Asia for years. Our partnership with HKBN and the continued, rapidly increasing connectivity of Asia's networks and businesses highlight the importance of this region and Hong Kong in particular," said Jerry Miller, Vice President of Technology at CDNetworks. "This partnership underscores our strategic focus on challenging Internet markets and geographies around the world while improving infrastructure utilization for our partners.”
