Wharf New T&T IPLC Seminar
One-stop-shop IPLC Total Solution Creates Exciting Business Opportunities in New WTO Member – China

Recently the world's business community has worked hard to develop and expand its presence in China. Moreover, China's recent accession into the WTO has further strengthened the desire of Hong Kong business enterprises to expand their China operations as well. Consequently, there has been tremendous growth in cross-border business contacts along with a dramatic rise in demand for cross-border communications services. Many Hong Kong enterprises have already established factories and offices in China. And, in order to maintain a closer relationship with their cross-border branches, a comprehensive range of advanced telecommunications services is definitely required. To meet these needs, Wharf New T&T has unveiled its high quality INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE LEASED CIRCUIT (IPLC) service, a cost-effective solution that addresses the needs of Hong Kong business enterprises. In order to introduce this service in greater detail to business professionals, Wharf New T&T will host a special China IPLC seminar on 9 January 2002. Top experts in the telecommunications industry will be invited to speak at this seminar, who will give a clearer picture of the dedicated point-to-point IPLC service which is largely unfamiliar to SMEs.

Wharf New T&T has always been active in expanding its broad-ranged comprehensive telecommunications services. In February 2000, we successfully broke the last bastion of the former telecom monopoly, and reinforce our commitment to providing and developing quality IPLC services. Moreover, Wharf New T&T was the first FTNS operator in Hong Kong who established direct interconnectivity with all international carriers in China. As a result, Wharf New T&T is able to provide a host of extremely flexible and reliable data transmission applications to our customers.

Wharf New T&T will present the very latest developments in IPLC at the seminar. Among these will be the current 24-hour a day point-to-point dedicated IPLC connection, which supports high-volume data, voice and video transmission anywhere within Mainland China at extremely high speeds. In addition, specialists will also explain in detail about how enterprises can streamline their workflow, and operate in the most cost-effective way possible through the use of IPLC and Internet data centres. Wharf New T&T's one-stop-shop IPLC total solution provides a simple way for SMEs to use this service at attractive low rates, due to the recent price cut for leased lines in China. Now with Wharf New T&T's total solution, SMEs can focus on developing their core business. We've entered a new era in which IPLC services are no longer used only by large-scale enterprises.

Specialists from a leading telecom operator on the Mainland China will introduce their company's various services at the seminar as well as explain the charging systems for the IPLC services in China. IPLC application procedures and other points of interest for SMEs will also be covered. This seminar will also have representatives from Hercules Network Systems Co. Ltd., on hand to introduce the various equipment used for IPLC services. They will also talk about how to select the most appropriate IPLC devices and applications. This will allow SMEs to operate their businesses in the most cost-effective way and to enhance the overall efficiency and competitiveness of their businesses.
