NTT America launches global virtual link Ethernet solution


NTT America announced the release of Global Virtual Link,
the next evolution of its Ethernet solution that offers customers such as
content providers and Internet service providers (ISPs) direct connectivity
among their multiple locations.


With the release of Global Virtual Link, NTT America has
enabled its customers to establish international point-to-point Global Virtual
Link direct connections to Point of Presence (POP) locations in Hong Kong,
Japan, Singapore and all of Europe, in addition to connections throughout the
United States.


We’re excited to be able to extend our Global Virtual
Link Direct service to international markets,” said Michael Wheeler, vice
president of NTT America’s Global IP Network (GIN) business unit.


As our customers many of whom are global service
providers and content networks continue to look to the cloud for cost-effective
network solutions, extending our Global Virtual Link service to POPs in Asia
and Europe was a natural next step,” Wheeler added.


Global Virtual Link provides a point-to-point
architecture that enables NTT America customers to establish a seamless
connection between two locations by integrating Wide Area Network (WAN) reach
into existing Ethernet-based Local Area Networks (LAN).


The service allows dedicated bandwidth from 100 Mbps to
10Gbps, leveraging the reach and reliability of the NTT Com Global Tier-1 IP


As a virtual point-to-point connection operating over the
NTT Communications network, Global Virtual Link allows NTT America’s global
customers to efficiently deliver content through major Internet network nodes
and data centers located both in the U.S. and abroad.
