NTT Com to expand global IP network into Eastern Europe

NTT Communications has expanded the reach of its Tier 1 Global IP Network in
Europe with new Point of Presence (POP) locations in Budapest, Bucharest and

The new global IP network POPs allow NTT Com to better enable service providers
and content networks to gain access to its high-capacity, reliable and
efficient network.

Eastern Europe offers valuable opportunities to the global IP transit industry,
and the new Budapest, Bucharest and Sofia PoPs will directly enable not only
the growth of the regional market but also the ability for global players to
effectively and efficiently connect to Eastern European infrastructure.

NTT Europe, NTT Com’s local subsidiary has been working closely with Eastern
European companies for several years to identify how best to help them meet
broadband growth demands, leading to the new investment in global IP network

NTT Com‘s Global IP Network Service directly connects to the company’s Global Tier-1 IP
backbone, which boasts top-level bandwidth for fast, reliable data
transmission, including 550 Gbps for U.S.-Japan traffic, 453 Gbps for
Japan-Asia/Oceania, 87 Gbps for Japan-Europe and 100 Gbps for Europe-U.S.

The network, which supports both IPv4 and IPv6, was one of the core networks
for this June’s World IPv6 Day trial. NTT Com’s Global Tier-1 IP backbone uses
peering relationships only to acquire and forward traffic, and does not depend
on any other ISP as a last-resort destination for traffic.
