NTT Com launches ICT services in Vietnam following its license win on Nov 26

Telecom Lead Asia: NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced that Global Data Services JSC (GDS), a joint venture between NTT Com and Vietnam Posts & Telecommunications (VNPT), has launched a wide range of information & communication technology (ICT) services to multinational companies in Vietnam.

NTT Com has been the first foreign-capital enterprise to obtain a telecom network license from the Ministry of Information and Communication on November 26. The new services are offered based on the new license.

The company is offering a wide range of services including domestic data network service (multicarrier), direct connection to domestic Internet exchanges (IX), internet access and video conferencing and teleconferencing.

These services are expected to boost the businesses of multinational companies in Vietnam.

The new domestic data network service includes local carrier selection. Using this multicarrier capability with carrier-redundant access, GDS designs and provides reliable, cost-efficient networks for the mission-critical systems of enterprise customers, such as services for online games or e-commerce. In addition, GDS provides SLA-backed network services to consolidate multicarrier connectivity nationwide.

By combining these new network services with existing data-center, cloud-computing (IaaS, mail & web hosting) and system-integration services, GDS now can offer optimal customer-tailored services covering comprehensive operation, maintenance and support, including various application procedures.

Multinational corporations’ needs for assured business continuity are fueling outsourcing demand for data centers and other backup facilities in Vietnam. At the same time, increasing Internet availability and usage is expanding the need for data centers as communication platforms for the provision of stable Internet business in the country.
