NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AS2914?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AS2914lt;/agt;–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 Toronto, Canada.
This expansion will enable NTT Com to further scale its offerings to
Internet service providers (ISPs), content-oriented companies, and
cloud, hosting and CDN providers in this highly strategic market. The
PoP will also support the growing demand for high-quality IP services
from global companies and organizations that have established their

Additionally, the financial services, commercial, distribution, media
and industrial sectors, all key drivers of Toronto’s vibrant economy,
will benefit from more global connectivity and networking options.
NTT Com customers will be able to connect at numerous capacity levels
including 100G ports with confirmed diversity and direct connections to
multiple points in the Global IP Network to ensure the highest
reliability and the lowest latency in the IP services.

fastest growing technology hubs,” said Michael Wheeler, executive vice
president of the NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America.
“Internet-centric businesses and organizations operating in the area
will have direct access to our tier-1 global backbone and the
