Bayan fortifies presence in logistics hub in Pasay, P’que

Bayan Business, the corporate solutions arm of Bayan Telecommunications Inc., recently announced its expanded capability to service the air cargo and freight logistics industry with an enhanced presence in the Pasay and Paranaque area to serve the telecommunications and connectivity requirements of the businesses located in the area.

This portion of Metro Manila, which straddles the neighboring cities of Pasay and Paranaque, has established itself to become the acknowledged cargo hub of the country mainly due to its proximity to the major international airport terminals.

In particular, Bayan is upgrading its infrastructure in the district called Santo Nino where almost all major international and local air cargo and freight forwarding companies with their head offices and central operations facilities are located.

Bayan Telecommunications COO Rafael T. Aguado said the expansion in the area is part of the company’s thrust to grow and extend the reach of its data services into a much broader extent for companies operating in the freight and logistics industry.

Due to the increasing demand of firms in the area, Bayan Business opened up a new node facility that will enable the service provider to bring its various Internet, data solutions, and managed services offering to this segment of the market.

Chito M. Franco, group sales head of Bayan Telecommunications, said that with a fortified capability to deliver its solutions to the locators in the area, Bayan Business is set to increase its market footprint in the industry.

Bayan Business started serving the cargo and logistics hub area in 2008 from a small segment of the Pascor Drive where its initial set of clients is located.

However, the telco’s capability to expand its offerings of IT services to suit the requirements of businesses there was being hampered by limited coverage.

With the additional investment for its Point-of-Presence (PoP) facility, the company said it will now be able to service more customers and clients from the area, with coverage extending up to the Multinational Village subdivision area.

Bayan Business will offer to existing clients, as well as potential customers, back-up services to their primary provide, and in addition provide them a new option in getting communication services that fit their requirements.

At a technology road show event held at the Vikings Restaurant at the SM Mall of Asia, Joevel E. Rivera, Bayan Telecommunications vice-president for product development and management, presented Bayan’s services and product portfolio, showcasing its Internet Access Service (IAS) products; the different data service offerings such as Domestic Leased Line (DLL), International Private Line (IPL), Frame Relay, Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network (IPVPN), Metro Ethernet and V-SAT; and its portfolio of Managed Services which includes Managed Customer Premise Equipment (CPE); Equipment & Office Co-Location; Network Monitoring System; Professional Services; Remote Technical Support Service; Cloud Computing; Hosted Contact Center; IP PBX; Disaster Recovery Site; Managed Security; Virtual Private Server; Command Center; VOIP/SIP gateway; Managed Wifi and Managed WAN; and Alarm Monitoring System Service.
