PLDT expands virtual points of presence in Asia, Europe, North America

As the global pandemic continues to accelerate the digital transformation of businesses, PLDT Global Corp. (PGC) is expanding its virtual points of presence (VPOP) to more countries in Asia, North America, and Europe to equip businesses with best-in-class technology solutions. PGC is the international arm of the Philippines’ largest fully integrated telco PLDT.

PGC offers greater flexibility and scalability in network connectivity through the adoption of software-defined networking (SDN) technology, which allows the connection and deployment of data-intensive applications and services worldwide.

“This portfolio of connectivity solutions addresses the ever-growing need of businesses to simplify their network management. SDN enables customers to upscale their network infrastructure with as little disruption as possible,” said Albert Villa-Real, SVP and chief commercial officer at PLDT Global.
