NTT Communications Reinforces its Position as the Top Wholesale IP Provider in Asia
New York, NY and Bangkok, Thailand – October 29, 2013 – NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), today announced its participation at the Capacity Asia 2013 Conference taking place in Bangkok, Thailand, October 29-31. Capacity Asia is one of the most prominent events for the wholesale telecommunications community in the region, bringing together participants from around the world and providing the opportunity to network with industry experts and peers.
Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Com’s Global IP Network at NTT America, will join industry leaders on the panel “Supporting the Uptake of Content Services in Asia Pacific – Video, Gaming and OTT Services” on Tuesday, October 29th, 9:45 a.m. local time, focusing on the challenges and opportunities the increase of content traffic presents to network infrastructure and customer experience.
NTT Com is in a unique position to address global wholesale trends and opportunities as the company is the top wholesale IP provider in Asia according to the latest quarterly wholesale rankings released by Renesys, a leading market research firm. NTT Com’s leading position in Asia remains unchanged from the 2012 Wholesale Rankings, which were published by Capacity Magazine earlier this year based on a wholesale customer base score from Renesys Market Intelligence.
“We are very proud of NTT Com’s strong leadership position in a number of key markets in Asia,” said Michael Wheeler. “We’ve strived to serve an increasingly interconnected world reliably with leading-edge technology and superior customer service. It’s encouraging to see that customers continue to appreciate the strength of NTT Com’s network and choose our company for their critical Internet-related business needs,” Mr. Wheeler added. “We will continue to reinvest in infrastructure in the region and all over the world, and drive towards acquiring more customers in the months and years ahead.”
NTT Com has been widely recognized with numerous awards for its high-quality services, innovation, financial performance, market leadership and socially responsible activities, including Best Asian Telecom Carrier at the Telecom Asia Awards 2013 and Wholesale Operator of the Year at Asia Communication Awards 2013. Additionally, the company was shortlisted for several Capacity Global Carrier 2013 Awards, including Best Wholesale Carrier and Best pan-Asian Wholesale Carrier.
NTT Com also announced on October 1st the expansion of its tier-1 Global IP Network footprint with two new points-of-presence (PoPs) in Jakarta, Indonesia, one of the fastest-growing markets for Internet in the world. NTT Com’s global IP backbone is consistently ranked as one of the world’s largest networks with the most significant volume of transpacific capacity. Other recent additions include PoPs in Barcelona, Stockholm, and Vienna, and the world’s first deployment of 100 Gbps digital coherent technology on a transpacific submarine cable system linking the U.S. and Japan.
