The NTT Communications Global IP Network is one of the only fully integrated IP networks with a robust content delivery network layered on top. By having full control of the network, NTT Com is able to deliver high quality streaming from its customers to their viewers. Our research shows that Web sites perform two to eight times faster because of the ability to off-load their content from origin servers. As a result, our Smart Content Delivery (SCD) solution manages and distributes rich media and static content in a manner that strengthens a company's brand with increased customer loyalty and greater satisfaction.
