RETN expands presence in China with a PoP in Beijing

London, United Kingdom – 20 October, 2020 – RETN expands its presence into the Chinese market with a new PoP in Beijing. Directly connected to the RETN Eurasian network by redundant terrestrial links running through China to the Kazakhstan border, the new PoP boasts diverse international reach and reliable low latency services to Central Asia and Europe.

Europe and Russia based businesses and organizations that are planning to establish their presence in the Chinese capital will definitely take advantage of the new PoP. At the same time, many enterprises in Beijing can now also benefit from the additional terrestrial connection to Central Asia, Russia and Europe. To all customers RETN offers an MPLS L2 VPN service – fully managed end-to-end connectivity up to the customer premises with high engineering-grade tech support.

“For several years now, we have provided reliable low latency terrestrial links that crossed China with TRANSKZ. With the new RETN PoP deployment in the region, customers can use TRANSKZ to access the gleaming capital of the Chinese market and make the most of the same reliable low latency infrastructure to interconnect back to operations in Europe, Russia and Central Asia. With direct access from Beijing to our Eurasian network, customers reap extensive efficiency gains by not having to exit China via the traditional Hong Kong gateway. Exiting the country in a more effective and reliable way compared to traditional subsea links, they can enhance their commercial capabilities with global services interconnected back with the Chinese capital. At the next stage we plan to link Beijing to our PoP in Hong Kong, leveraging our global and local expertise to facilitate additional redundancy and access to other Asian markets on our network,” – comments Tony O’Sullivan, COO at RETN.
