PLDT Global, OneQode partner to strengthen eSports

PLDT Global Corp. announced that it signed a memorandum of understanding with OneQode, a gaming infrastructure provider, that aims to strengthen and internationalize the gaming experience of the local esports community.

“We are thrilled for this partnership to come into fruition and further elevate the gaming experience for over 43 million active players in the Philippines,” PLDT Global President and Chief Executive Albert V. Villa-Real said in a statement.

Under the partnership, OneQode will establish its gaming network infrastructure in the country to boost its operating capability.

“The Philippines is in a very strategic location for OneQode, which ensures that gamers using PLDT in the Philippines get the best latency to APAC Central,” OneQode Co-Founder and Chief Architect Ben Cooper said.

Through its global gaming infrastructure, OneQode uses a “unique server location” to allow for cross-regional gameplay.

“By working with PLDT, we can put Filipino gamers on the world stage. This is an incredibly exciting time for the region,” OneQode chief executive Matt Shearing said.

OneQode is a global Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) company based in Australia, operating a latency-optimized international carrier network and a high-performance cloud platform.

“Teaming up with OneQode to deliver unmatched gameplay interactivity and further drive gamer engagement in the region, including the Philippines, through our resilient data center facility and advanced digital solutions, is an exciting moment for us,” PLDT Global Asia-Pacific Regional Head Jefferson Mendoza added.

Hastings Holdings, Inc., a unit of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., has a stake in BusinessWorld through the Philippine Star Group, which it controls. — Luisa Maria Jacinta C. Jocson
