New York, NY and Amsterdam, the Netherlands – November 3, 2014 – 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 Europe 2014 Conference taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, November 3-5, 2014. Capacity Europe is a key event for the European and global telecom community, providing a platform for global players such as NTT Com to share their insights on the trends and opportunities of the evolving wholesale IP transit market.
Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America, will join fellow industry leaders on the keynote panel “Reaching Out to Emerging Markets: Unlocking the Potential across Markets within BRIC, MENA and LATAM” on Wednesday, November 5, at 11:00 a.m. local time. The panel will discuss the latest developments and opportunities in these regions as well as share expertise on how international carriers can effectively expand into emerging markets worldwide.
NTT Com is in a unique position to address global trends and opportunities, as the company was named by Renesys (now Dyn’s IP Transit Intelligence) earlier this year as one of the top two global wholesale IP providers of 2013 for the second year running. In Europe, NTT Com ranked sixth in Renesys Wholesale Rankings (up from ninth the year before) fueled by strong customer growth and network expansion. The company was the only provider to command a top-six ranking in the three strategically crucial markets of Asia, Europe and North America.
Earlier this year, NTT Com expanded its European IP backbone with a new point-of-presence (PoP) in Luxembourg, one of the fastest-growing markets for Internet-related businesses in Europe. The Luxembourg PoP is connected by multiple 100GE backbone circuits and offers IPv4/IPv6 dual stack access via NTT Com’s extensive Tier-1 IP network to domestic and regional Internet services (ISPs) and content (ICPs) providers as well as foreign companies providing Internet-related services in that market.
“Europe remains an important piece to NTT Com’s global strategy and continues to be a dynamic growth market of its own,” said Clive Hamilton, Vice President of Network Services at NTT Europe. “We continue to invest substantially and expand in the European market with the aim of providing our customers more global connectivity options and world class products and services,” Hamilton added.
NTT Com was shortlisted for several Capacity Global Carrier Awards 2014, including Best Global Wholesale Carrier, Best Asian Wholesale Carrier, Best North American Wholesale Carrier and Best European Project, recognizing innovation, vision and excellence in the global wholesale industry. The winners will be announced at the Capacity Europe 2014 Conference on November 4, 2014 in Amsterdam.
NTT Com is an Associate Sponsor of Capacity Europe 2014. NTT Com is also sponsoring the Day One Drinks Reception, offering all attendees the opportunity to network with their colleagues in an informal environment, and will have an exhibition table in the refreshment area.
