Level 3 Communications has agreed with the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) that PLDT will use Level 3’s landing station connectivity at the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable system – a key communications link between the two continents. Level 3’s services provide a diverse and scalable extension of the PLDT pan-Asian network to carry voice, data and video traffic in the United States.
Cable landing station connectivity provides a critical component of the global network architecture for international carriers. The Level 3 network offers multiple options for cable landing station connectivity that enable cost-effective and reliable transmission of subsea cable traffic.
“As broadband and wireless communications continue to grow, PLDT faces increasing demands for network connectivity and performance,” said Genaro C Sanchez, Vice-President of International Network Operations for PLDT. “Level 3 offers the global network connectivity and scalability to ensure that we continue to meet our goal of greater efficiency, cost savings and innovation – today and in the years to come.”
