PCCW Global’s Next Generation Network supports a wide portfolio of international voice and data solutions, cost-effective value-added managed services and a range of network monitoring services. With an extensive and resilient network infrastructure across the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia, we currently meet the international connectivity needs of enterprise and wholesale customers in more than 3,000 cities.Headquartered in the hub of Asia, Hong Kong, we own one of the largest fully-meshed IP backbone networks in the Asia-Pacific region, reaching more than 400 cities with MPLS VPN.
Security is top priority for PCCW Global, which houses all network equipment in high-availability, carrier-grade data centers served by cooling, a backup power supply, state-of-the-art surveillance systems and redundant carrier facility entrance points.GSOC’s technical staff monitor and maintain the network 24/7, thereby guarding against unauthorized access round the clock.
Only authorized persons can access network equipment by following a predefined security procedure that is reviewed and updated by PCCW Global on a regular basis.In fact, PCCW Global’s meticulous approach to MPLS network security is evidenced by certification that includes BS7799 and ISO/IEC 17799 (Information Technology – Code of practice for information security management), ISO 9000, TL 9000, 5S Certificate and SunTone certificates.
A high level of security is further assured by deploying separate access routers for MPLS and Internet services to isolate MPLS VPN traffic from the web. Indeed, PCCW Global’s MPLS VPN is a closed network with dedicated routers and links connecting all PE routers.Each MPLS VPN has an internal virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) table unique to every customer to ensure that one VPN’s traffic never overlaps with another. Even if the core network is shared between different customers, their MPLS VPN traffic will remain independent and isolated.
Applied to all MPLS network routes, an access control list (ACL) grants entry only to specified IP addresses used by authorized PCCW Global support staff. In addition, customers have the option of deploying application encryption mechanisms, such as IPSec, to provide an extra level of security.Global Network Map
