NTT Com to Establish Global IP-VPN POP in India
and Enhance Service in New Zealand
TOKYO, JAPAN - NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced today plans to establish a point of presence (POP) for its Arcstar™ Global IP-VPN managed network service in Chennai, India and also to interconnect the service with an IP-VPN service operated by Telecom New Zealand (TNZ) in New Zealand.
NTT Com began accepting applications for the service in both locations today.
The new POP, established in cooperation with Tata Communications, in Chennai will enable NTT Com to offer high-quality IP-VPN services at affordable prices in the area surrounding this southern Indian city, where Japanese and other multinational companies are increasingly establishing a business presence. NTT Com already offers POPs in Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi in cooperation with Tata Communications.
The interconnection of Arcstar Global IP-VPN with the IP-VPN service of TNZ, New Zealand’s largest telecommunications company, will allow enterprise customers to enjoy seamless, cost-effective network communication with domestic and global offices. Previously, customers were required to use access lines from an NTT Com POP located outside of the country.
Arcstar Global IP-VPN is available in 159 countries and regions.
