News and Business

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) is expanding its optical tier-1 Global IP Network with a new point-of-presence (PoP) in Toronto, Canada. The expansion, it says, will enable the company to further scale its offerings to internet service providers, content-oriented companies and cloud and hosting providers in the “highly strategic Canadian market”. The PoP will also support the growing demand for high-quality IP services from global companies and organisations that have established their Canadian headquarters and/or operational centres in the region.

Additionally, the financial services, distribution, media and industrial sectors – all key drivers of Toronto’s economy – will benefit from more global connectivity and networking options. NTT Com customers will be able to connect at numerous capacity levels, including 100G ports with confirmed diversity, and with direct access to multiple points in the Global IP Network to ensure the highest reliability and the lowest latency in their services, promised NTT.

“We are extending our footprint into one of North America’s fastest growing technology hubs,” said Michael Wheeler, executive vice president for the NTT Com Global IP Network at NTT America. “Internet-centric businesses and organisations operating in the area will have direct access to our tier-1 global backbone, and the high-performance IP solutions they need for their content, online video, hosting, gaming and other bandwidth-intensive applications.” NTT also recently expanded its network with a new point-of-presence in Dublin, Ireland, at Equinix’s DB1 data centre. NTT’s optical network covers North and South America, Asia, Europe and Oceania.
