Mr. Marc Halbfinger, Chief Executive Officer of PCCW Global, said, “We are honoured to be working with CTG and CHTI to establish a seamless Greater China IPX network as a ‘bridge’ that will facilitate even tighter communication throughout the region, and to the rest of the world. The latest 4G services are enabling people to interact with greater flexibility for voice and data networks, and our collective IPX solution will serve to accelerate that process.”

Mr. Xiaofeng Deng, Chief Executive Officer of China Telecom Global, said, “By implementing our own global IPX platform, we can provide voice and data roaming with better quality and network reliability to benefit our 200 million mobile subscribers.”

He added: “We will see more than voice and data carried by the IPX platform in the near future, and are very pleased to establish our first IPX connections with PCCW Global and CHTI, as valuable partners. Greater China is home to one of the most dynamic and booming economies in the world. It is therefore top priority for us to bolster long-term co-operative partnerships in the region to strengthen our position in the global telecoms business arena. China Telecom will continue working on global extension of our network footprints.”

Dr Alex Chien, Executive Vice President of Chunghwa Telecom International, said, “We launched 4G in mid-2014, as the first and only IPX service provider in Taiwan. We are pleased to co-operate with China Telecom Global and PCCW Global via IPX peering interconnections, and believe this ‘everyone wins’ strategy will deliver the greatest benefits to our customers, especially in terms of premium quality.”
