NTT America Launches Ultra High Speed, Wide Area Ethernet Solution
NEW YORK, NY - NTT America, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation, today announced the release of VLink, a direct point-to-point virtual circuit provided through the NTT Communications Global IP Network in the United States. VLink, available in nine U.S. domestic markets, is an Ethernet solution that directly addresses the needs of high bandwidth point-to-point data transfers.
The innovative new service provides the flexibility and scalability of Layer 3 (IP) technology while incorporating the dedicated traffic paths and management capabilities associated with Layer 2 technologies. VLink leverages NTT Communications' Global IP Network in order to offer customers greater flexibility, cost effectiveness and security.
"Through the VLink solution, our customers are guaranteed a rapid and flexible upgrade path for their existing networks," said Kazuhiro Gomi, Vice President, Global IP Network Business Unit, NTT America, Inc. "This solution is yet another example of NTT Communications' dedication to providing our customers with the tools that allow them to manage disparate technology platforms in the most secure, flexible and cost efficient manner available."
VLink complements NTT Communications' Global Super Link product, which was released July 1, 2005, by targeting global high-speed point-to-point bandwidth needs, including those in the United States and Japan. Using similar technology VLink targets a ultra high bandwidth solution (100Mbps to 1Gbps) for U.S. domestic needs.
Providing the Ultra High Speed site-to-site connection, the solution meets the needs of the service providers and those customers who want cost-effective pipes for data backup and large volume data replications.
VLink's high speed point-to-point Ethernet virtual link service offers speeds ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps. Prices are available at a fixed rate, based on the locations of the end points. For more information, please contact an NTT America consultant at 1-877-8-NTT-NET or visit us.ntt.net
