Hong Kong, United States, 2007/01/12 - The new office is part of Vanco's (Virtual Network Operator) expanding presence in Asia Pacific. It has 2,300 telecom sites under management in the region.
Vanco, the pioneering global Virtual Network Operator (VNO), announces that its next office in Asia Pacific will be Hong Kong. Vanco’s presence as measured by the sites under management has grown 100 percent during the past 12 months in Asia Pacific.
The significance of the region was recently underlined during a panel discussion organized by Vanco at the British Consulate in New York where Gartner analyst David Neil addressed a crowd of Fortune 500 executives considering or embarking upon expansion in Asia Pacific. Neil affirmed, “The attractiveness of the Asia/ Pacific region is growing. Companies should look to managed network services as a proven alternative in a challenging region.”
Vanco (vanco.com) has uniquely deep expertise in designing and managing telecommunications networks in Asia Pacific and globally. During 2006, Vanco has doubled the number of sites under management in the region, with the total number now at 2,300. This growth has fueled Vanco’s expansion, as last year new Vanco offices were opened in Shanghai, China and New Delhi, India, in addition to its existing regional hub in Singapore, and office in Sydney, Australia.
The Hong Kong office is to open in the next two months.
Allen Timpany, Vanco’s Chief Executive, comments, “Our tremendous growth in the Asian region demonstrates the strength of the VNO approach anywhere in the world. More and more multinational organizations are looking to open offices, factories or other facilities in the region and they need a reliable partner to network these sites and so harness the benefits of operating in a truly global fashion.”
Speaking from the ITU exhibition in Hong Kong, the world’s largest telecommunications show with over 60,000 attendees, Timpany added, “What’s more, we are winning significant pieces of business from Asian companies with networking requirements both in Asia and around the world.”
