China and Hong Kong Internet Data Center Market – Geography

The data center market in China is growing YoY aided by strong growth in internet connectivity across the country and an increasing number of submarine cable deployments connecting China with the rest of the world. In 2020, submarine cable projects Hainan-Hong Kong Submarine Cable System, with a length of 780 km, and the Southeast Asia-Japan Cable 2 (SJC2), with a length of 10,500 km, connected China with Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, and Vietnam. The (SJC2) investment consortium consists of Facebook, China Telecom, Telin, Singtel, VNPT-Vinaphone, and True Corporation. This project is expected to be operational by Q4 2020. Data center demand in China will exceed supply due to the rising demand for cloud-based services, big data analytics, and IoT. The high demand for data centers will boost the construction of colocation facilities and prompt regional cloud service providers to establish multiple availability zones across the country along with the growing demand for hybrid infrastructure services.

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
