Hong Kong’s connectivity market is among the most significant and sophisticated globally because of the region’s emphasis on new technologies and world-class telecom infrastructure illustrated by a growing number of submarine cables. Its geographic location also places it as a strategic gateway to mainland China.

Through this partnership, BSO and SUNeVision will enable our joint customers to reach key capital markets worldwide through our highly connected data centre and ecosystem. In addition, with hybrid and multi-cloud models being increasingly crucial for financial institutions, our cloud exchange platform, SUNeVision Cloud eXchange (SCX), will further provide them with direct, private access to multiple major cloud gateways, strengthening the flexibility, security and scalability they need to adapt to dynamic, fast-moving markets.” – Helen Lo, Head of Strategy, SUNeVision Holdings Ltd.
