Global IP networking solution provider H3C is helping HKBN provide a reliable, high speed data service to residential customers in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong Broadband Network (HKBN) is a fixed telecommunications network service (FTNS) provider and the first ISP to offer Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) in the local residential market in 2007.
HKBN aims to tap the growing FTTH market in Hong Kong and wants to address the demand for high-speed Internet connection, high definition TV (HDTV), HD video on demand, 3D HDTV, and online gaming.
To address these requirements, HKBN searched for a solution that provided carrier-class reliability, high availability, high speed, high density 10GE ports, and room for growth.
The company also wanted security, connectivity, interoperability and reliability in the solution and decided upon the H3C S5800 after an extensive review of available solutions in the market.
H3C and HKBN cooperated closely during testing, deployment, training and post-implementation support of the H3C solution.
The H3C S5800 provides strong capability for Layer 2 security; delivers enhanced Layer 3 capabilities; and is compliant with industry standards for connectivity and interoperability.
Also, integration with technologies from other vendors is a standard feature of the S5800.
Thanks to S5800, HKBN is able to perform a range of important functions to deliver "Steady Speed" to customers.
HKBN now provides FTTH technology across its network of 18 districts in Hong Kong and is the first network operator to provide 100Mbps and 1000Mbps at mass market price points.
"The success of the HKBN's FTTH business reflects the ability of the H3C solution to deliver on the provider's promise of 'steady speed'," said Davis Hui, general manager of H3C Hong Kong/Macau. "We are committed to ensuring HKBN's success now and in the future."
