   Robust Transpacific Networks Keep Pace with Content Consumption in Asia


Business Wire

NEW YORK -- January 16, 2013

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT,
today announced executives from the company’s U.S. subsidiary will speak at
PTC’13, the Pacific Telecommunications Council’s annual conference and a
premier Asia-Pacific telecommunications event, taking place 20-23 January in
Honolulu, Hawaii. In alignment with the PTC’13 theme of Capacity, Capability,
Collaboration, NTT Communications, a leading provider of transpacific network
services, will offer its insight on game-changing opportunities and challenges
presented by software defined networks (SDN) and big data for enterprises
using transpacific networks and growing their businesses in Asia.

NTT Communications’ Transpacific Network Dominance

NTT Communications’ low latency, high capacity submarine cable systems include
the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE), the shortest and most reliable route
across Asian hub cites/data centers, and the PC-1 cable, the fastest route to
Asia from the United States and back again. ASE enhances NTT Com’s highly
reliable global network services by boosting the capacity and strengthening
the redundancy of its Asian cable networks. NTT Com’s PC-1, the world’s most
reliable, transpacific, sub-sea network, provides a vital link between the
United States and Asia and is particularly attractive to multinationals that
require Asia-Pacific service. Additionally, the NTT Com Global IP Network, one
of the three largest IP backbones in the world, maintains the largest
provisioned capacity for transporting data between the United States and
Japan. The extensive global infrastructure NTT Com owns and operates covers
over 159 countries across Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe.

“NTT Communications is the best and only solution for anyone who’s serious
about transit between the United States and Japan,” said Dave Engberg, CTO of
Evernote. “Our customers expect the highest quality of service possible, and
NTT Communications’ direct routes to the markets that are the most critical to
our business enable us to deliver just that.”

Executive Insight on Software Defined Networks

NTT America’s CTO Doug Junkins will participate on an Executive Insight
Roundtable on Monday, 21 January at 11.45 HST. This panel of CTOs will
highlight technological revolutions occurring today at all layers of the
Internet, ranging from physical components such as optical cross connects, to
network elements for wireless, wireline, and satellite systems. The panel will
also cover architectures such as software defined networks and OpenFlow, and
applications such as cloud-based software as a service. Traditional data
centers are being replaced by software defined data centers connected by
software defined networks, driven by everything from virtualization to flat
data center networks, enabled in some cases by emerging technologies such as
passive optical switches. These capabilities are being exposed by network
application programming interfaces (APIs), providing unprecedented visibility
and control to application developers. Mr. Junkins will elaborate on SDN from
a network automation/API perspective and focus on how developing standard APIs
will allow customers/operators to automate the provisioning and ongoing
support of network connections.

Adhering to the company’s Global Cloud Vision, NTT Com will offer a globally
seamless cloud service to enterprise clients worldwide. 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.
Networks based on OpenFlow can dramatically improve productivity and reduce
costs. SDN supports businesses that have 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 bandwidth on demand.

Big Data, Big Bandwidth, Big Opportunity

Mr. Brent Duncan, vice president of sales and marketing for the Global IP
Network (GIN) of NTT Communications, will join industry experts for the
Topical Session 5, “Big Data, Big Bandwidth, Big Opportunity,” on Tuesday, 22
January at 14.00 HST. In the telecommunications space, providers of undersea
and terrestrial networks have responded to petabytes of data with additional
capacity (and higher line rates) through planned or accelerated upgrades, or
through new systems. As a result, it is possible to move large data sets
quickly across the globe and store them in new green data centers that house
storage and processing systems with high-speed network interfaces.

Big data is also creating opportunities for providers to increase revenue by
offering solutions involving these large data sets, from providing customers
with better access to information with content delivery networks (CDN) to
minimizing security concerns with protection against DDoS and other
cyber-attacks. NTT Communications’ own CDN solution, Smart Content Delivery,
takes advantage of advanced technology to transmit big data quickly to data
centers closer to end users. The company also offers an industry-leading DDoS
Protection Service that helps mitigate large-scale attacks and keeps “clean”
big data moving on to a network. Mr. Duncan, a security subject matter expert,
will address these subjects as well as transpacific capacity during his
