CMG brings Hong Kong’s 25th anniversary celebrations live to the world with reliable connectivity solutions from HGC

HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – July 1, 2022 – With global focus on Hong Kong SAR as it marks the 25 . markse anniversary of its founding, China Media Group (CMG) turned to Hong Kong-based HGC Global Communications (HGC) to share the celebrations with audiences across China and around the world.

Providing one-stop connectivity, HGC mobilized its MetroNET, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) services and enterprise broadband services to provide reliable and resilient ultra-low latency communications to CMG.

As a Chinese national broadcaster, CMG sets very strict quality requirements in the field of telecommunications. Given the size of the Hong Kong anniversary celebration and the global profile of the broadcasts, HGC has assembled a dedicated service team of knowledgeable professionals to support CMG 24 hours a day. The ongoing pandemic, short lead times and the need to accommodate changing plans put additional strain on HGC’s team and technology, but both proved up to the challenge.

HGC’s MetroNET service deployed bare fiber as the carrier and built a low-latency, high-definition video signal transmission network between the key locations of the 25e birthday celebration. With the operators’ extensive and interconnected fiber optic network on the mainland, HGC provided fast and secure connectivity between Hong Kong and CMG’s main control broadcast center in Beijing. The system’s dual-core architecture ensured the highest network availability and full resiliency, while HGC’s DIA service provided point-to-point internet connectivity for smooth transmission and uncompromised security.

This HGC infrastructure helped CMG provide quality TV and radio coverage throughout the week and supported the high-quality live stream broadcast of the official ceremony. As a historic moment for all Chinese around the world, CMG told the stories of Hong Kong from a contemporary perspective, extensively showcasing the unique and dynamic of the city.

Henry Cheng, Vice President of Global Data Business, International Business at HGC, said: “We are honored to have been CMG’s connectivity solutions provider on an occasion of such national importance. HGC’s team worked hard, demonstrating our ability to provide quality and efficient service within a tight schedule and strict requirements. With the support of clients such as CMG, we are confident we are on the road to success to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the Greater Bay Area which is an example of Hong Kong’s bright future.”
