NEW YORK -- January 14, 2013

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT,
today announced the company participated in and sponsored several key
conferences during the fourth quarter of 2012, offering insights and
perspectives on developments in the Internet that will impact enterprises in
2013. At leading business conferences in the United States, executives from
the company’s wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, NTT America, addressed
technologies and trends shaping today’s global business decisions, notably
mobile media consumption, cloud computing, software defined networks (SDN),
and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) in the era of big data.

In October, Ms. Teri Francis, NTT America’s Vice President of Customer
Solutions, spoke at the Digital Hollywood Fall 2012 conference, joining
industry leaders in a panel discussion about video across platforms –
television, broadband and mobile – and understanding the three screen value
proposition. As a leading provider of enterprise hosting, managed network and
global IP networking services, NTT America has unique insight into how digital
entertainment executives and content decision makers can cost effectively and
securely offer anytime anywhere programming options, build social media
networks, and launch content-rich apps to support growth and additional
revenue opportunities.

During her talk, Ms. Francis emphasized the proliferation of mobile devices in
the marketplace and consumers’ increasing preference to watch high-definition
video on their mobile devices, as well as on televisions connected to the
Internet. Shining the spotlight on NTT Communications’ global, high
performance Internet backbone, she discussed why the company’s network
architecture is optimal for video distribution and delivery to any screen
anywhere in the world.

At the Gartner Symposium / ITxpo 2012 in October, Mr. Kazuhiro Gomi, NTT
America’s CEO, and Mr. Doug Junkins, CTO, led a workshop to help executives
visualize how to improve productivity and reduce costs with software defined
networking, network virtualization and the global cloud. The interactive
workshop addressed what companies need to know 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.
NTT Communications is the first service provider to apply SDN technology
through the OpenFlow protocol to its Infrastructure-as-as Service (IaaS)
offering, the NTT Com Enterprise Cloud.

In November, attendees of Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo Americas 2012 gained
insight from NTT Communications’ first mover advantage in software defined
networks. Mr. Junkins delivered a keynote presentation during which he
profiled potential cost-saving benefits that software defined networks provide
network operators and the game-changing opportunities the technology presents
service providers to differentiate their service and application portfolios.

In December, Mr. Craig Hurley, NTT America’s Director of Product Management,
provided a detailed analysis of the main components required for a Recovery as
a Service (RaaS) program at the Gartner Data Center Conference, educating data
center professionals about how they can implement a RaaS program within a
complete IT strategy. For enterprises grappling with the storage of ever
growing volumes of data - on premise, in the cloud, or both - data audit,
archive and recovery are becoming increasingly complex activities. Mr. Hurley
highlighted NTT America’s Cloud Recovery, a solution that proves especially
valuable to CIOs, as it provides fully managed BC/DR for mission-critical
infrastructure, cloud-to-cloud or premises-to-cloud, in the event of planned
or unplanned outages.
