NTT America Provides High Speed Global IP Access, Award-Winning Services for Content Distribution Worldwide
NEW YORK – October 16th , 2012 - NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), and a global IP network services provider, today announced that Teri Francis, Sr. Director of Customer Solutions of the company’s NTT Communications Global IP Network Business Unit, will speak at the Digital Hollywood Fall 2012 conference at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina del Rey, California. Digital Hollywood, one of the premier entertainment and technology conferences in the country, brings together executives from the film, television, music, home video, cable, telecommunications, and computing industries. A leading provider of enterprise hosting, managed network and global IP networking services, NTT America has unique insight into how digital entertainment executives and content decision makers can cost effectively and securely deploy next generation services and content to support growth and additional revenue opportunities.
Ms. Francis will join industry leaders on the panel “Video Anytime Anywhere: Video across Platforms - Television, Broadband and Mobile - Understanding the Value Proposition” on Tuesday, October 16th, 2:15 PM PDT (http://www.digitalhollywood.com/12DHFall/DH12Fl-Tues23.html). The integration of the IPTV and TV experience with the full power of new consumer technologies – from broadband to mobile – opens the door to not only a unique world of entertainment and information, but it also brings to the table a next generation idea of full consumer interactivity within the PC-Mobile-TV experience. Via the NTT Com Global IP Network, NTT America delivers network performance solutions for companies in the social networking, content delivery, entertainment and media industries, where consumer demand for high-definition video and rich media content online is growing at unprecedented rates.
“We are looking forward to Ms. Francis’ participation at Digital Hollywood Fall 2012,” said Victor Harwood, president and CEO of Digital Hollywood. “As a key player in the deployment of next generation services and applications, NTT America supports content delivery across platforms and brings a unique perspective to the conversation.”
During the panel, Ms. Francis will address opportunities for social networking, media and entertainment companies seeking optimal network architectures for content distribution and delivery worldwide. She will talk about the importance of providing a global, high performance backbone that can meet the most demanding customers’ requirements anywhere in the world and how flexibility in bandwidth, connections and pricing are fundamental to containing costs. As high-profile, high-traffic sites become easy targets for DDoS attacks, she will also discuss the sharp increase in these incidents that can potentially cripple network infrastructure and severely degrade user experience. Ms. Francis will also give a glimpse into the future, touching on how the implementation of IPv6 and 100GigE provide a platform to give traditional and new media broadcasters a competitive advantage.
In her role as Sr. Director of Customer Solutions, Ms. Francis is responsible for delivering a consistent, positive customer experience through customer engineering, technical support, product development, and operational support systems (OSS). As an advocate for NTT America customers, Ms. Francis and her team are focused on delivering services and support to meet their discerning needs. Ms. Francis has over 20 years of telecommunications experience ranging from domestic and international network design and provisioning, data center planning and construction, SS7 signaling design, CLEC IP communications service delivery, and ISP engineering.
