HKNet’s revamped managed network services offer round-trip latency in Hong Kong

HKNet Company Limited, a subsidiary of NTT Communications, is changing the networking landscape with SecureNet Managed Network Services. 

The service revamps HKNet’s previous SecureNet IP-VPN service by supporting hybrid network solutions that leverage MPLS IP-VPN, Carrier Ethernet and layer-1 connectivity.  The enhanced SecureNet not only offers an industry-leading round-trip latency in Hong Kong, but also expands its coverage to Asia.  Essentially a suite of highly-scalable and any-to-any seamless connectivity services, the new SecureNet is designed for MNCs, especially finance, IT, retail, logistics and manufacturing industries with operations in Asia.

“Enterprises want a flexible, scalable and reliable managed network service that seamlessly connects across different networking platforms. SecureNet bolsters interoperability, scalability and speed by placing our decades of experience, deep expertise and strong track record at enterprises’ fingertips,” said Patrick Ng, Executive Vice President, Global Network Business Division, NTT Com Asia Limited which operates HKNet.

HKNet says the SecureNet Managed Network Services offers any-to-any connectivity across different layers of Open Systems Interconnection (OSI), with different types of networks from fixed to mobile, and the ability to adopt advanced network technologies from MPLS to the latest PBB-TE (Provider Backbone Bridge Traffic Engineering), allow enterprises to interoperate with the latest technologies.

Features including bandwidth from 1Mbps to 10Gbps, customized Service Level Agreements, bundled service options, one-stop shop and local billing options, enable enterprises to cater to real-world business demands.

The round-trip latency within any Hong Kong PoP (Point of Presence) of less than 1.2 milliseconds makes SecureNet ideal for latency-sensitive enterprises, such as financial services companies, claims HKNet.

“Time is money and SecureNet takes this to heart by offering benefits and options very few suites offer. Our latest networking technologies and standards will ensure enterprises stay ahead of their rivals by future proofing their network infrastructure.  In short, it raises the bar of connectivity across Asia Pacific,” added Ng.
