New York -- NTT Communications, the global data and IP services arm of telecom service provider NTT, announced on July 9 that the company is expanding its 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. Overall, this is a very exciting market for us."
Kirsten Rundberget, open strategy lead at Fujitsu Network, discusses the industry's advances — and challenges — in the complex yet beneficial area of open technologies, and why service providers should get involved, even if they don't yet plan to deploy.

Fast, reliable broadband is essential to how we live, work and play today – and the upcoming arrival of 5G will only further increase demand and reliance on fiber infrastructure. Already viewed by consumers as intolerable, delays, outages or the regular maintenance difficulties associated with operating a network will become further exacerbated when residential subscribers further rely on connected devices for day-to-day life. Just as providers deploy network automation tools to reduce operational issues, they must take similar care to manage consumer expectations when they roll out fiber or new services. This webinar features leaders who will discuss how to manage marketing and consumer expectations at every stage of the network lifecycle. Marketing professionals, c-level executives and policymakers interested in drumming up fiber envy should attend.
