Empowering digital transformation to help businesses capture opportunities in the GBA

HKT provides strong network coverage and 24/7 service support in all GBA cities.

A number of key national plans have highlighted the tremendous opportunities that lie in the GBA (Greater Bay Area) for both local Hong Kong and multinational enterprises. As a result, many enterprises are now expanding their businesses and driving their digital transformation through emerging technologies to capture new opportunities in this important market.

They aim to increase operational efficiency, enhance market presence, and gain a foothold in the China market by doing so. On the evolving digital transformation journey, many enterprises speed up cloud adoption to maximise scalability and business growth. 

Strong network coverage across all GBA cities with 24/7 support

HKT is well-prepared to support the needs of fast-growing businesses and provides a variety of integrated solutions that have already helped a number of enterprises in different sectors successfully accelerate their digital transformation.

The company provides strong network coverage in all the 9+2 GBA cities, including the two special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau. With 24/7 technical service support in both Hong Kong and China, HKT has the resources to help enterprises expand their businesses smoothly in this competitive market.

Managed Security Services with high standards

The hybrid workplace is now the new normal for many enterprises that have adopted the cloud to scale up their businesses and facilitate a more agile work environment. HKT provides a variety of integrated solutions to accomplish this. Its Managed SD-WAN solutions with 5G capabilities support reliable and scalable interconnections between an enterprise’s branches, headquarters, and clouds whilst simplifying network complexities, reducing network operation costs, and benefiting enterprises with multiple offices and branches in different locations.  

Together with the company’s Managed Secure Access Edge service, the combined solutions allow for the seamless integration of additional cybersecurity capabilities into cloud-based frameworks for end-to-end protection and the enhancement of corporate network security from the ground up.

HKT is the first Hong Kong-based service provider to receive an SD-WAN + Cloud Network Convergence Award from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (“CAICT”), a scientific research institute directly under the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology ("MIIT"), at the SD-WAN Excellence Awards in 2021. HKT has also been accredited with SD-WAN Ready 1.0 and 2.0 certifications, which further demonstrate that the company’s SD-WAN with Managed SASE solutions have attained technical compliance with the latest SD-WAN standards and guarantee security performance in mainland China. 

Empowered Chow Tai Fook’s cross-border digital transformation

Amongst HKT’s customers is the Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group, which approached HKT to improve its network infrastructure at over 6,000 locations across China. 

HKT achieved some remarkable records during the project, including the installation of SD-WAN in over 100 shops in one day, the completion of an urgent shop activation within 12 hours, and the increase of a shop’s effective bandwidth by over 10 times. HKT successfully helped Chow Tai Fook in its deployment of cloud-based smart retail technologies. These achievements show that HKT’s services are in full compliance with the latest standards in China and that the company has rich experience in emerging technologies and delivering guaranteed performance.
