NTT America Supports Growth of Internet in Central America
New York, NY – 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 company executives will speak and moderate panels at Capacity Central America 2009, Capacity magazine’s newest conference focusing exclusively on the Central American wholesale market, on October 21, 2009 at the Sheraton Panama Hotel & Convention Center in Panama City, Republic of Panama. NTT Communications is the gold sponsor of the event and will also sponsor a lunch and opportunity to network on October 21.
Michael Wheeler, vice president of the Global IP Network for NTT America will offer his perspective based on experience in the Latin American market on the topic of “Liberalisation and New Opportunities in the Central American Wholesale Markets,” on Wednesday, October 21 at 9:30 a.m. EST. The Central American telecommunications market is being driven by the speed of liberalization combined with a dramatic increase in demand for broadband connections and applications, as well as mobile Internet support. As part of one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, NTT America can leverage the international business, financial, technology and geographic assets of the NTT Communications Global IP Network to help Central American telecommunications and cable companies stay competitive as they rapidly add new customers and deliver new services to support growth and additional revenue opportunities.
NTT America’s Tier-1 Internet backbone, the NTT Communications Global IP Network, offers connections to major ISPs around the world, with particular strength in the United States and Asia, and to major Internet network nodes and data centers located in key U.S. cities. The global reach of the network allows Central American carriers and service providers the ability to deliver traffic internationally, which is equally important for meeting the demand for high speed Internet access as is the ability, maintained by the network’s 1tbps of peering capacity, to add new subscribers quickly. The network’s industry-leading SLAs (Service Level Agreements) ensure quality of service for customer retention by guaranteeing that the network will be outage free 100 percent of the time.

David Berrios, NTT America’s manager of business development for Latin America, will moderate the panel, “Analyzing the Key Markets and Services Driving Capacity Demand in Central America: Identifying New Revenue Opportunities,” on Wednesday, October 21 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Central American carriers and service providers are facing key challenges of capacity pricing and access as more businesses and consumers purchase broadband connections. With several years of experience in the Central and South American markets, Berrios will address ways service providers and carriers can contain the costs of doing business while rolling out new IP based services using flexible high speed connections designed to scale with their changing bandwidth needs. Via the NTT Communications Global IP Network, NTT America can shape bandwidth up to 10Gbps, deliver over STM1, STM4, STM16, Fast/Gigabit/10 Gigabit Ethernet, and provision any number of 10GigE ports in a matter of days. In addition, the speed of the network means that NTT America can quickly deliver rich and streaming content residing in the United States.
The NTT Communications Global IP Network, which was the first Tier-1 network fully upgraded to run IPv6, meets the future business needs of Central American telecommunications companies exploring opportunities in the emerging wireless backhaul market and the delivery of quadruple play services. Given that the number of wireless and mobile devices moving to IP based services will each require an IP address and that IPv6 offers and almost unlimited number of IP addresses, IPv6 will be an important network layer technology for the scalability of 4G networks. NTT America’s IPv6 transit service on the NTT Communications Global IP Network is available in native, tunneled or dual stack modes.
