NTT America Helps Evernote Expand Exponentially via NTT Communications’ Global IP Network
NEW YORK – July 17, 2012 – NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and a Tier-1 global IP network services provider, today announced that Evernote, popular U.S.-based cloud note-keeping service, is enabling access to its innovative suite of products by leveraging the NTT Communications Global IP Network.
Last year, Evernote began surveying the industry for a bandwidth provider that could accommodate the company’s exponential growth, particularly in the Asia Pacific market. Evernote chose NTT America as its primary provider due to the quality of service and technical sophistication of the network’s infrastructure.
“Japan is Evernote’s second largest market, so it was imperative for us to partner with a network provider that offered seamless service to the Asia Pacific region. No one provides better access to that market than the NTT Communications Global IP Network,” said Dave Engberg, CTO of Evernote. “Our customers expect the highest quality of service possible, and NTT America’s direct routes to the markets that are the most critical to our business enable us to deliver just that.”
Evernote is benefitting from NTT Communications’ high level of redundancy, industry leading uptime and extensive network of peering partners. Since becoming an NTT America customer more than one year ago, Evernote’s bandwidth requirements have tripled in size and NTT America has been able to easily and quickly scale with the company’s needs.
“Over the last four years, we have seen Internet traffic flowing from the U.S. to Asia triple in volume. As companies expand their global footprint, it’s critical they have a solid network infrastructure in place to maintain the quality of service their customers expect,” said Brent Duncan, vice president, sales & marketing, Global IP Network, NTT America. “Our strong connection to Japan and the greater Asia Pacific market have long been a competitive differentiator for us.”
NTT America directly connects customers – including telecommunications companies, Internet service providers (ISPs), content providers, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) and enterprises – to major markets around the world via NTT Communications’ Tier-1 IP Backbone Network and Point of Presence (PoP) locations covering Asia, North and South America, Europe and Oceania (including Australia & New Zealand).
As demand grows for content and services available via the Internet, NTT America supports its customers by shaping IP transit bandwidth delivered over both Internet protocol version 4 (IPv4) and the next-generation Internet protocol version 6 (IPv6). The company provides flexible and fast dedicated access to the global Internet, the most aggressive Service Level Agreements (SLAs) in the industry and more than 2.4 Tbps of peering capacity globally.
