Hong Kong’s getting a new Video Network Operations Center (VNOC), thanks to Providea (News - Alert) Conferencing. The company has announced the opening of the new VNOC, expanding its global footprint to help provide the services its customers in the Asia/Pacific region need.

This makes the fourth VNOC operated by Providea, which has three other locations in California, New York and Canada. Each of them is staffed with certified video and network engineers, providing a full suite of managed services to customers across the world.

With the managed services offered by Providea, customers can gain access to video conferencing infrastructures with multipoint bridges, gateway services, and video hosting in the cloud. They can be accessed over any network from virtually any environment, so there’s no reason to worry about accessibility.

It’s all there, just waiting to be used.

"As our customers become increasingly global in reach, with more complex ecosystems of individuals and groups, effective collaboration and engagement can be a significant factor for success," said Providea’s CEO and president, Todd Luttinger.  "The investment in our VNOC in APAC is a strategic move to address the needs of our growing international based customers to meet their collaboration strategies and help alleviate some of the demand IT departments are facing to manage and keep up with the growing requirements."

As the world grows more connected, it’s important that companies make sure they can reach across the globe and provide their services to all corners of it. Setting up the Video Network operations Center in Hong Kong is a smart move by Providea, as it will help its customers in the area get the best service from a less remote location.

It’s going global, and its customers will be all the better off as a result.
