Capacity Magazine has recognised Pacnet for its achievements in the wholesale telecommunications services market.

The independent telecommunications service provider in Asia has been applauded for delivering the Best Pan-Asian Wholesale Offering at the Capacity Awards 2011.

This year, the winners of these awards were selected by a panel of leading telecoms analysts in the industry, as well as the senior editorial team from Capacity Magazine.

The Capacity Awards 2011 were held on 22 November 2011 alongside Capacity Europe 2011, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

"We are very honoured and encouraged by Capacity Magazine's recognition of our efforts and achievements in the wholesale telecommunications services market," said Bill Barney, chief executive officer of Pacnet. "We thank our partners and customers for their support as Pacnet continues to enhance our network assets to deliver services and solutions that meet the demands of the wholesale market."

Wholesale capacity services

Headquartered in Hong Kong and Singapore, Pacnet delivers a wide range of wholesale capacity services backed by its very own 46,420 km of fibre optic submarine cable infrastructure connecting key locations in Asia and across the Pacific Ocean.

Pacnet's EAC-C2C network lands in China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan. The company notes this to be Asia's largest privately-owned submarine cable network, which is about 36,800 km in length.

Pacnet successfully offers high quality routing capability in Asia by leveraging its meshed network architecture and the Automatically Switched Optical Network (ASON) technology deployed throughout the network.

In addition, it provides redundancy via multiple submarine routes to the same countries, which promises a unique value proposition for Pacnet customers.
