NTT Com Opens New IP Transit POPs in Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia
As a strong emerging market, Eastern Europe offers tremendous opportunities for the global IP transit industry. The new global IP network POPs allow NTT Com to better enable service providers and content networks to gain access to its high-capacity, reliable and efficient network, the company said.
NTT Com's Global IP Network Service is a high-speed broadband IP communication service operating throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and the United States. The IP network directly connects to the company's Global Tier-1 IP backbone, which boasts top-level bandwidth for fast, reliable data transmission.
The new IP transits at Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia PoPs will enable not only the growth of the regional market but also the ability for global players to effectively and efficiently connect to Eastern European infrastructure.
The new global IP network POPs are the result of several years of efforts by NTT Europe, NTT Com's local subsidiary, which has been closely working with Eastern European companies to identify opportunities to help them meet the growing demand for bandwidth.
NTT Com 's Global IP Network delivers 550 Gbps for U.S.-Japan traffic, 453 Gbps for Japan-Asia/Oceania, 87 Gbps for Japan-Europe and 100 Gbps for Europe-U.S. It supports both IPv4 and IPv6, and was one of the core networks for this June's World IPv6 Day trial.
NTT Com's Global Tier-1 IP backbone uses peering relationships only to acquire and forward traffic, and does not depend on any other ISP as a last-resort destination for traffic, company officials said.
In another recent development NTT Com announced its carrier partners renewed their commitment to enhancing their delivery and operation of NTT Com’s Arcstar global network services. Arcstar services include IP-VPN, e-VLAN, leased line and Arcstar Universal One, a cloud-optimized network service that securely links closed enterprise networks with global cloud services.
