NTT Communications to Expand Global IP Network to Thailand
TOKYO -- June 16, 2014
NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm
of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE:NTT), announced today that it
will expand its global IP network footprint with a new point-of-presence (PoP)
in Bangkok, Thailand, one of the fastest-growing markets for Internet-related
business in Asia, beginning July 1.
NTT Com will offer IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack access via its award-winning* Tier-1
IP network not only to domestic providers of Internet services (ISPs) and
content (ICPs), but also multinational companies providing Internet-related
services in Thailand and the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) countries,
including Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
NTT Com will leverage its presence in Thailand to strengthen the country’s
Internet environment, where a population of over 67 million is driving some
70% compound annual growth in international IP traffic. With Thailand
functioning as the center of the GMS, the new PoP also will enhance the
Internet environment throughout the GMS, which has a population of
approximately 300 million.
NTT Com’s global Tier-1 IP network, a pioneer of commercial IPv6 technology,
is the world’s second-largest network among global Tier-1 IP network providers
and is the number-one network in Asia*, including the largest transpacific
capacity^**. Direct connection to this backbone ensures availability to highly
reliable global infrastructure that Internet service providers in Thailand and
the GMS will use to deliver high-performance, low-latency and cost-effective
global access to their customers.
