HKT (SEHK:6823) – HONG KONG, July 21, 2015– PCCW Global, the international operating division of HKT, has been named one of the “20 Most Promising Unified Communications Technology Solution Providers 2015” byCIOReview, a US-based technology magazine that focuses on innovative enterprise solutions.
A list of companies is selected annually by a panel of experts and members ofCIOReview’s editorial board to recognize and promote technology entrepreneurship. The top-20 solution providers were said to showcase in-depth expertise in integrated and innovative technologies to streamline operations in the unified communications (UC) space.
PCCW Global’s ranking was in recognition of “being at the forefront of tackling challenges faced in the unified communications landscape” and serving the voice and data needs of multinational corporations and telecommunications service providers.
Mr. Harvi Sachar,CIOReview’s publisher and founder, said, “PCCW Global has been on our radar for some time for stirring a revolution in the UC technology space, so we are happy to showcase the company this year due to its continuing excellence in delivering top-notch unified communications solutions.”
He added, “PCCW Global’s solutions continued to break new ground within the past year, benefiting customers around the globe, and we are excited to have it featured in our top companies list.”
In June, PCCW Global’s UC leadership was reinforced by acquiring Syntelligence, which owns Voxclever – a UK-hosted Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) provider. The Syntelligence platform offers a complete solution for the delivery of cloud communications services to enterprises and service providers.
Reaching more than 3,000 cities in 140 countries, PCCW Global’s extensive network supports Quality-of-Service features across a portfolio of integrated global communications solutions based on the latest Ethernet, IP, fiber and satellite transmission technologies.
Mr. Marc Halbfinger, Chief Executive Officer of PCCW Global, said, “We are honored to be recognized by such a panel of distinguished experts and industry thought leaders.”

In fact, we are constantly evolving our network in order to offer related products and services to the benefit of our many customers.”
