NTT Family Companies – NTT Com, Dimension Data and NTT DATA – Host VIP

Executive teams from three NTT Group companies – NTT Com, Dimension Data and
NTT DATA – will host an NTT Group VIP Reception at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo
on the evening of October 24.

Executives Lead Workshop on Software-defined Networking (SDN)

On October 24 from 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. EDT, NTT America’s President and CEO,
Kazuhiro Gomi, and CTO, Doug Junkins, will facilitate the workshop, “Improving
Productivity and Reducing Costs: Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network
Virtualization and the Global Cloud.” This interactive workshop will address
what companies need to know now to formulate or enhance their global cloud
strategy and action plan, covering opportunities and benefits of
software-defined networking and network virtualization for the global cloud.
Mr. Gomi, who was recently appointed to board of directors of NTT Com, is
responsible for the direction and leadership of NTT America’s mission,
strategy, annual goals and objectives, as well as for fostering a culture of
success. Mr. Junkins, as NTT America’s CTO, is responsible for the company’s
technology procurement strategy and vendor selection, industry relations and
standardization efforts, and product portfolio coordination across the Global
IP Network, Data Center Services and Global Solutions business units. NTT Com
is the first provider to apply SDN technology through the OpenFlow API to its
infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, the new Enterprise Cloud. SDN
supports clients with significant cloud capacity requirements, allowing for
optimized traffic flows and cloud workloads between and among data center
facilities and separate clouds. The technology sustains a more nimble and
scalable provisioning model for on-demand delivery.

NTT Com Gains Innovator-Edge with New Enterprise Cloud

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo attendees will learn more about NTT Com’s recent
launch of the world’s first globally seamless enterprise cloud service to
incorporate OpenFlow network virtualization technology for networks built
within and between data centers. The service is initially provided via NTT Com
data centers in Japan and Hong Kong, followed by data centers in the United
States (two locations), the United Kingdom and Singapore in December and in
Australia, Malaysia and Thailand in March 2013. The service features a no-cost
broadband connection from this new enterprise cloud solution to NTT Com’s
Arcstar Universal One cloud based enterprise network.

NTT Com’s new infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering, Enterprise Cloud,
provides global cloud resources that enterprise customers can easily control
and manage to optimize their IT costs and support the global expansion of
corporate operations.

Many multinational enterprises with growing global operations are struggling
with long lead times to expand and modify their IT systems, which can delay
their response to rapid changes in the market. NTT Com solves this dilemma by
providing flexible cloud services, employing virtualized servers and networks,
and a convenient customer portal, to enable automatic system changes.

enabling enterprises to expand their business globally,” said Kazuhiro Gomi,
President and CEO, NTT America.
