HGC Global Communications Limited (HGC) confirms the expansion of its Eyeball-as-a-Service (EaaS) solution to the Philippines, following its initial launch in Singapore.

Built on HGC's digital infrastructure, the extended EaaS coverage is scaled to support global digitalisation and faster market entry by international players by enabling them to reach 400 million eyeballs in the Southeast Asia. 

With a population of more than 110 million people, the Philippines is accelerating its digitisation with a high internet penetration expected to reach 77% by 2022.

“With the OTT market ramping up competition, enabling personalized and premium user experience and adapting to local social behaviour is crucial for businesses to stay ahead of vital marketplaces," said Ravindran Mahalingam (pictured), senior vice president of international business at HGC.

"HGC unlocks the full value of our full-fledged digital infrastructure for rapid business globalization. The Philippines is one of Southeast Asia’s largest internet opportunities and we are happy to serve customers and partners globally who wish to explore the great prospects in this geography.”

The EaaS edge offering enables real-time, high-performance, high-density computing and data analytics that deliver better user experience.

EaaS takes into consideration regional routing and IP related services, bringing on route diversity that not only provisions ultra-low-latency and a more robust bandwidth, but also offers disaster redundancy preventing profit-hitting downtime.

”The launch of EaaS in the Philippines shows once more HGC’s commitment to driving a more connected world towards a digital, real-time, experience-driven future," said Cliff Tam, vice president of global data strategy for international business at HGC.

"With a comprehensive edge strategy, we are fortifying the innovations in the ecosystem linking up players from local carriers to ISPs, MNOs, data centre providers and cloud operators.”

In addition, HGC has deployed several value-added services to complement its EaaS solution, enabling multiple levels of connectivity from international backbone to fixed access with network design customization, edge servers, cloud platform deployment, system integration and managed services.
