PLDT expands its regional footprint, delivering technology solutions to Cambodia’s SINET, helping customers stream more seamlessly. SINET, one of the biggest network service providers in Cambodia, is the latest addition to PLDT Global Corporation’s growing portfolio of international partners, serving global points-of-presence in 100 countries across Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
In a 2020 study published by Media Partners Asia, online video streaming minutes in the region grew by 60%. This underscores the greater need for network service providers to rise above the challenge in keeping people and businesses connected and drive the world toward a new and better normal.
“We at PLDT Global are committed to investing in innovative solutions to realize this mission. We are very happy to partner with SINET to strengthen our foothold in Asia as our CDN presence in Cambodia grows,” said Albert Villa-Real, SVP and chief commercial officer at PLDT Global.
“This will position us as a global innovation leader and technology service provider that caters not only to Filipino businesses but also to international enterprises that demand a more comprehensive suite of technology services,” he added.
Content Delivery Networks ensure faster access to digital content or media via web servers or points-of-presence that bring the content much closer to the end-user.
With PGC’s CDN node, SINET can now offer CDN solutions to over-the-top (OTT) providers and other enterprises in Cambodia and other key markets in Asia.
“We would like to thank PLDT Global for collaborating with us. In just a few weeks, we have noted significant increases in traffic owing to the PLDT CDN – traffic which continues to grow. Hopefully, we can collaborate more and go together on this path,” said Kong Diep, chief technical officer at SINET.
This initiative is part of the Philippine integrated telco PLDT’s broader campaign to enable companies to digitally transform and perform despite the challenges posed by the global health crisis.
