NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 9, 2018--NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm of telecom leader NTT (TYO: 9432), announced today that the company is expanding its award-winning Tier-1 Global IP Network with a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Dublin, Ireland, at Equinix’s DB1 data center. This new PoP will support the growing demand for high-quality IP transit services from global companies and organizations that have established their European headquarters and/or operational organizations in Dublin.

The PoP is located at Equinix’s DB1 data center in Dublin, one of the most densely connected IBX ® facilities in Ireland. It is NTT Com’s first location in the city and reflects the company’s commitment to the expanding Internet-centric, cloud service, content and digital media community in the area.

NTT Com customers at DB1 will be able to connect to the Global IP Network at numerous capacity levels including 100G ports with confirmed diversity and direct connections to Amsterdam and London to ensure the highest reliability and the lowest latency in the IP services.

“The new PoP in Dublin fits our strategy to take NTT Com’s global backbone into some of the fastest-growing Internet markets,” said Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America. “This location will not only serve new customers looking for high-capacity, high-quality IP transit services but also many of our current global customers that have established operations or are considering expansions in the Dublin area.
