Hong Kong – PCCW Global won the Best Network Improvement Award at the AfricaCom Awards held in Cape Town, South Africa in November. In 2016, PCCW Global proudly became the world’s first service provider to be accredited with MEF 100Gbps CE2.0 certification for E-Line and E-Access services on our SES (Ethernet over MPLS and VPLS) and DES (Ethernet over SDH) platforms. This represented a milestone for the industry because the previous upper limit for MEF CE2.0 services certification was 10Gbps.

It was an important initiative enabling a 100Gbps connection across its African and global network, when the industry standard is far below this. PCCW Global plans for the long-term capacity requirements to meet the rising demand of businesses and communities across Africa.
