Highly Reliable

We use multi-ring topology to construct our core network. All our services are provided in a simple, reliable and with diversity environment. That means we guarantee our customers an exceptional value-for-money service with a low failure rate.

Cost Effective

We can offer you extremely cost-effective solutions because of further utilizing our existing infrastructure of CATV Hybrid fiber coaxial network. As part of our optic network is built along the TV network trunk , it has a great synergy to develop and expand the fiber coverage. Hence, construction costs are greatly streamlined which in turns benefits our customers in terms of more cost-effective solutions.

Network & Service

Network Infrastructure

Fiber optic (glass or polymer) network enables users to overcome the limitations of traditional copper cable communications networks. It also support ultra broadband and low latency communications.

Latency, the speed at which communications take place, is an important parameter for the networks of the future. Low latency network facilitates rapid data transfer hence enabling self-driven AI systems for cars or drones.

Our integrated transport and data network is one of the most secure and advanced network in Hong Kong. We leverage on the latest Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM), and IP technologies. This technology enables i-DATA fiber-optic network to provide a platform that delivers comprehensive range of bandwidth services including dedicated bandwidth fiber, optical wavelength, and protected transport high bandwidth services such as 100G /10G layer 1 connectivity service. By using Fiber to the X (FTTx) and Metro Ethernet (ME) technologies, up to 10Gbps Ethernet link services are being provided.
