China Telecom Global: Enabling Efficient, Affordable Adoption of Cloud Infrastructure
In an era of massive digital transformation, there still exist a large number of corporate users and enterprises that are not well-acquainted with the solutions that can fulfill user requirements across industries. They are also flooded with a large number of cloud solutions, making it more difficult for them to decide on the one suitable for their particular needs. Besides, their perceptions of digital transformation vary significantly. Having noticed this gap and the bewilderment of the enterprises on receiving multiple marketing messages a day, China Telecom Global (CTG), a world-class integrated information service provider, is deploying the multiple-cloud policy to help the corporate users address current and future business needs with professionalism and carry out digital transitions. Established in 2012, this wholly-owned subsidiary of China Telecom Corporation Limited, promotes the recognition and implementation of its cloud solutions through industrial solutions, trials, and by sharing its success cases. CTG leverages its proficiency in the Cloud & IDC segment to provide a wide range of customized cloud-based solutions, including hybrid cloud, cloud exchange, and managed services. However, the company is laser-focused on cloud migration and assists its customers in migrating successfully and securely from traditional IT systems to the cloud environment. CTG’s high network security and performance to access cloud services makes its solutions more reliable than the Internet.
CTG not only ensures best practice migration support to businesses but also offers ROI analysis, optimization, and more in order to reduce customers’ CAPEX and OPEX. However, what differentiates CTG from others in the market is its ability to deploy these solutions with an impressive success rate. CTG also assists customers in deploying and stabilizing their data assets in a globalized infrastructure, which is an essential requirement of the future cloud environment. Be it connecting a global distributed cloud platform with SD-WAN technology or offering infra-data cloud storage service, the company is dedicated to providing quality services to its customers across the globe.
After all, as Jason Li, VP of the cloud division at CTG, mentions, “China Telecom’s cloud proposition is based on the ability of cloud-network convergence, secure and reliable capacity, and multi-cloud rules.” With such enhanced capability and knowledge, coupled with its quality of customer recognition, there are chances of CTG becoming the leading solution provider in APAC in the forthcoming days.
Additionally, the company is equipped with the capability of integrating edge clouds with large public clouds such as Alibaba Cloud, Tencent Cloud, AWS, Azure, and China Telecom eCLOUD, which would assist its customers in finding the IT architecture that best suits their business demands and works as the end-to-end solution for their current and future endeavor. From providing multi-cloud policy, Managed Public cloud, Cloud interconnection ability, CTG brings forth all these solutions at an affordable cost. However, CTG’s global network is the most significant factor that provides the company with a competitive edge in the market. It comprises 41 submarine cables, ensuring a total international capacity of over 55T. Over 35 cloud nodes cover each corner of the world, helping its customers set up an IT infrastructure seamlessly and efficiently. To boost the efficiency of its solutions, CTG has established 183 PoPs (Points of Presence) around the world. It also has subsidiaries and affiliates in 42 countries in America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
Besides a strong global network, CTG adheres to a neutral technical route. It has welcomed cooperation between technology solution providers and China Telecom foundational network capabilities to offer unique solutions to its clientele. In fact, moving forward, CTG will be committed to cooperating with more such organizations to practice technical solutions such as Universal CPE, white-box, SD-Security, and SD-Branch. The company has also established an NFV-I ready cloud infrastructure that can support white-box technology solution providers to seamlessly and quickly build enterprise-level solutions.
Deploying the intent-based network (IBN) feature in the aforementioned products is the next thing CTG is planning for the near future. Also, by leveraging its global network capabilities, the company is currently promoting SD-WAN and elastic cloud connection—the latest solutions in network capability virtualization. If compared with the traditional method, as Li explains, this would enable enterprises to obtain a secure and stable network channel quickly, avoid congestion points, and be flexible in billing. As the world’s largest broadband operator with 123 million subscribers, CTG functions efficiently across a diverse range of solutions and services, including vertical industry solutions, bandwidth, IP, and unified communication.
