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."
In the American Broadband Initiative Milestones Report out today, 20 federal agencies pledge to simplify and accelerate the process for service providers to deliver broadband into America's countryside.
But startup will need to finalize its satellite design, secure more funding and cut through the regulatory red tape before its vision to rival terrestrial fiber networks can (literally) get off the ground.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other – or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.
Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers – simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
