NTT Communications to Address ITW 2013 Attendees on Global Wholesale
Company Consolidates its Leadership Position Among Top Wholesale Providers
International Telecoms Week 2013
NEW YORK & CHICAGO -- May 13, 2013
NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm
of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), today announced its
participation at the International Telecoms Week (ITW) 2013 taking place in
Chicago, May 13-15. ITW, one of the most prominent global events for the
wholesale telecommunications community, brings together participants from
around the world and provides the opportunity to network with industry peers,
suppliers and customers.
Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of the NTT Communications Global IP
Network, will join industry leaders on the panel “Redefining Wholesale
Partnership Models for Growth and Agility” on Tuesday, May 14^th, at 2 p.m.
NTT Communications is in a unique position to address global wholesale trends
and opportunities, as the company was recently named by leading market
research firm Renesys as one of the top 2012 wholesale IP providers worldwide.
Two reports from Renesys—the renowned Baker’s Dozen and the Wholesale Rankings
2012—put NTT Communications in top spots of the global IP transit market

The Baker’s Dozen shows NTT Communications in a tight race for the No. 2 spot
in the ranking, closing in on the leader and widening the gap over its nearest
competitor. As Renesys notes, the data analyzed for this ranking is related to
IPv4 and shows global scores.
Data in the Wholesale Rankings 2012, published by Capacity magazine in its
Wholesale world 2013 yearbook and based on a metric called “wholesale customer
base score” from Renesys Market Intelligence, indicates that NTT
Communications has climbed from third place on the global wholesale list at
the end of 2011 to second at the end of 2012, making substantial gains on the
market leader. This yearbook report notes that in Asia “operators failed to
keep up” with NTT Com. It also indicates that NTT Com experienced “a strong
year of growth in Europe” along with some of the strongest advances in North
America. Ranking authors predict that 2013 should be a year where NTT
Communications continues to establish itself as a major player in North
Naturally, this prediction has Michael Wheeler excited for the future. “We’ve
strived to grow our business in a number of key markets, so it’s encouraging
to know that our colleagues in the industry are recognizing those efforts,”
Wheeler said. “Looking forward, we believe that any provider who can serve an
increasingly interconnected world reliably with leading-edge technology and
superior customer service will undoubtedly grow its customer base.”
Latin America is other area where NTT Com will make major strides in 2013; in
late 2011 the company rolled out a Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Sao Paulo,
Brazil, and since then it has worked with Internet service providers, large
and multinational enterprises and Internet-based businesses in the region to
connect them to international markets through its Tier-1 Global IP Network.
Still, authors of the Baker’s Dozen report note that they “see the battle for
global Internet dominance playing out in Asia,” and with most of the world’s
population and still relatively low Internet penetration, this region will
likely remain as the main battleground for wholesale IP providers in the
According to Wheeler, NTT Communications is poised to gain even more ground in
the competitive IP landscape. “We will continue to reinvest in infrastructure
all over the world, and drive towards acquiring more customers in the months
and years ahead,” he said.
