CITIC Telecom CPC and One Source Networks Announce Reciprocal International Partnership

Joint Venture Enables Seamless Service Delivery for Enterprise Customers on a Global Basis

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- One Source Networks (OSN), the cloud and managed services partner of choice for large enterprises, and CITIC Telecom International CPC Limited ("CITIC Telecom CPC"), a wholly owned subsidiary of CITIC Telecom International Holdings Limited, announced today their partnership to deliver connectivity and managed services to customers in Greater China and the United States.

An ICT leader in Asia-Pacific, CITIC Telecom CPC is also the first VPN service provider in Hong Kong to receive three ISO certifications: ISO 9001 -- Quality Management System, ISO 27001 -- Information Security Management System and ISO 20000 -- Information Technology Service Management System. After providing OSN with reach into Greater China and Asia for two years, CITIC Telecom CPC was looking for a partner to support its customers' network requirements in the United States. It chose OSN, whose commitment to high-quality service delivery at a competitive price point reflected CITIC Telecom CPC's own core company values.

"We are thrilled at the opportunity to build upon our partnership with One Source Networks," said Stephen Ho, CEO, CITIC Telecom CPC. "As our customers continue to expand globally, it is critical to our business, as well as theirs, that we continue to deliver the consistent, high-performance connectivity that our customers have come to expect."

By interconnecting with One Source Networks via an NNI in Los Angeles, CITIC Telecom CPC can offer data services to its Asia customers doing business in the United States. These services include both Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPN services.

"This relationship has been tremendously beneficial for customers of both CITIC Telecom CPC and One Source Networks," said Ernest Cunningham, CEO, One Source Networks. "One of our core initiatives at OSN is to provide our customers with a full range of communications services, without the complexity and cost of working with multiple providers. By partnering with CITIC Telecom CPC, we have been able to provide our enterprise customers with a suite of IT capabilities across Greater China and the U.S., backed by the peace of mind of working with a single provider."

The relationship with CITIC Telecom CPC enables OSN to offer its key enterprise customers in Greater China comprehensive managed services coverage across the region. It also supports OSN's recent network expansion, integrating with its new PoPs, across London, Bogota, New York and Los Angeles. These PoPs provide interconnections with regional carriers to allow OSN to better support the demand for bandwidth-hungry applications.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
