Telehouse Hong Kong CCC Has Achieved Rated 4 CertificationOctober 14, 2016
HONG KONG, S.A.R., October 14, 2016 – HKCOLO.NET announces today that its Telehouse Hong Kong CCC has achieved a Rated 4* certification for its advanced facility located at Cloud Computing Complex, 2 Chun Yat Street, TKOIE, Hong Kong. The Rated 4 Certification was issued by TIA-942.
The certification signifies maximum reliability, fault tolerance, resilience, dual redundancy and superior quality. It also means the provider has gone through the scrutiny by the Telecommunications Industry Association for meeting or surpassing the Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard. Users no longer need to hire specialists to study the infrastructure to ascertain the many criteria for mission critical operations. The expensive, time consuming and specialized verification job has been done ahead of time by accredited third parties.
Beyond being the first data center in Hong Kong to obtain this highest certification, Telehouse Hong Kong CCC is the first to establish itself as a magnet in an Industrial Park which quickly attracts other service providers from near and afar into the formation of a Data Center Community in Hong Kong. The company’s expertise in fulfilling the demanding and exacting standards of the financial institutions is evidenced also by its regular audit approval by major monetary authorities. Furthermore, Telehouse Hong Kong CCC has a proven track record in the provisioning of tailor made customer solutions most advanced in the industry.
Our achievement of the Rated 4 Data Center Certification has proved Hong Kong to be the leading hub for advanced data center service excellence. Hong Kong will serve as the gateway for overseas enterprises to China and also as the springboard for Chinese enterprises to overseas. We will not be complacent in what we have achieved today. Through continual advancement and eyes to the future, we strive for our value enhancement to customers.
* The term ‘Tier’ was used in the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard until the ANSI/TIA-942:March-2014 edition. In the March 2014 edition the term ‘Tier’ has been replaced by either ‘Rated’ or ‘Rating’.
