One of Asia’s biggest providers of content delivery network (CDN) services has added two new CDN Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in China, increasing the performance and speed of digital content delivery in the country.
Strategically located in Guangzhou and Tangshan, Pacnet’s two new PoPs will provide coverage of the northern and southern regions of China, and are situated close to major cities including Beijing and Shanghai where most of the country’s digital content is consumed.
“As more Internet users come online in China, the country’s insatiable thirst for digital content is expected to continue to grow at high rates,” said Jim Fagan, President of Managed Services, Pacnet. “These two new PoPs are key to our strategy to capitalise on that increasing demand.”
The two new China PoPs, together with CDN deployments during 2012 in India, Korea and Taiwan, have enhanced Pacnet CDN’s reach across the Asia Pacific region. The company revealed last December that it plans to build a US$ 72mn data centre in the city of Tianjin in northern China.
Along with the four CDN PoPs previously deployed in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia, Pacnet now has a total of nine self-owned and managed CDN PoPs in the region. Additionally, through its CDN federation partners in Europe and the US, Pacnet has access to a total of 42 PoPs worldwide.
Jon Vestal, Vice President of CDN Products at Pacnet, will be speaking at the CDN Asia 2013 event taking place in Singapore on 29-30 January. For more information and to register, please visit http://cdnworldsummitasia.com
