PCCW Global, an operating division of HKT, Hong Kong’s main telecommunications service provider, has launched a wholesale and enterprise HD video calling service for its global partners.
The service offers switched point-to-point HD video calling with a managed class of service and guaranteed video quality from endpoint-to-endpoint, the company said.
“HD communications is enjoying tremendous growth as enterprises are looking for high-quality but cost-effective communications solutions,” said Jordick Wong, PCCW Global’s senior vice president of product and vendor management. “Our HD video calling service can deliver the same excellent customer experience with video that carriers have been always delivering for voice via a traditional PSTN system, while providing managed class of service and guaranteed quality.”
He added, “HD video calling is really about applying carriers’ expertise in voice trading to video sessions. This is in carriers’ DNA. By offering HD video calling, which requires large amounts of managed capacity, carriers can increasingly monetize the investments that have been put into their big bandwidth networks, and to do so on a per minute basis. We look forward to collaborating with more carrier partners to bring HD video calling service to enterprise customers around the globe.”
