The growing use of smartphones, tablet devices and broadband access has led to sharp increases in music/video downloading, blogging, social networking and cloud computing worldwide. NTT (News - Alert) Com has implemented a number of initiatives to facilitate the fast, stable data transmission of increasing data traffic. The latest addition is its expansion of the data-transmission capacity of its Global IP Network between Asia and Oceania to 500 gigabits per second (Gbps).
NTT Communications (News - Alert) Corporation is a provider of IP network services worldwide. With this current expansion, the company has enhanced its leadership in trans-Pacific Tier-1IP connectivity. The new capacity is noted to be equivalent to approximately 29,762 channels of digital terrestrial television or 428 years’ worth of content in a daily newspaper.
NTT Com’s global IP backbones provide IP network services that are connected to fixed and mobile telecom companies, Internet service providers (ISPs), data center operators and content providers. The company’s largest cable network, which offers 630 Gbps between Japan and the United States, uses a dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) configuration as one of NTT Com’s core IPv6 networks.
The company also is assisting the initiatives of IT-related government agencies in emerging countries, such as providing consultation to support ISP transition to IPv6 and access to the global Internet. NTT Com has rapidly increased its data-transmission capacity between Asia and Oceania by nearly tenfold, from 53 Gbps in 2007 to an industry-leading 500 Gbps.
NTT Communications is a member of the NTT Group and a Fortune Global 500 telecommunications group. The company has a strong presence in Asia-Pacific region.
In a new release, the company announced that it has extended its Global low-latency network with a dedicated connection between London and Hong Kong. The expansion will allow NTT Communications to offer a Managed Bandwidth Service using the new TEA-2 system - the newest low-latency route alternative to subsea cables.
