China UnicomThe Switch has partnered with China Unicom (Americas) Operations Limited to extend its global network further into Asia, giving customers instant access to stadia, broadcasters and technology leaders throughout China Unicom Americas’ geographic network.

Additionally, customers of China Unicom will now have access to The Switch’s 53 points of presence (POPs) around the world, and connection to US tech leaders, major global broadcasters and more than 180 sports organisations, venues and rights holders.

The Switch network will now reach the cities of Shenyang, Beijing, Xi’an, Wuhan, Tianjin, Shanghai, Chegdu, Guangzhou and Fuzhou via China Unicom’s dedicated connection to The Switch, Los Angeles. China Unicom’s network includes connections to more than 100 stadia and more than 50 broadcasters across China, enabling remote production and content delivery throughout the world’s largest population.

Over the past year, The Switch has invested in expanding its network, products and services internationally. This includes the launch of The Switch Access, a broadband IP connection enabling low-cost connectivity from anywhere in the world, the addition of strategic partnerships on several continents, and increasing its team to include dedicated personnel in key international locations.

‘Extending The Switch network to The People’s Republic of China will provide a gateway to and from Asia for customers seeking content from anywhere in The Switch’s worldwide network,’ says The Switch President/CEO, Keith Buckley. ‘We view China as a strategic choice in The Switch’s continued investment in international expansion.’
