KDDI America expands U.S. Ethernet network

MAY 26, 2009 -- The network expansion is the latest development in KDDI America's efforts to make its telecommunications services readily available to U.S. companies.

MAY 26, 2009 -- KDDI America Inc. (search Lightwave for KDDI), the U.S. division of KDDI Corp., a provider of international telecommunications services, system integration, and network products, data center services, and facilities, recently announced the next step in the ongoing expansion of the KDDI US Powered Ethernet network by installing its own Ethernet network hub facilities in data centers in Chicago, IL; Ashburn, VA; and Dallas, TX.

KDDI America launched its US Powered Ethernet network in February, providing high-speed, scalable Ethernet connectivity to several U.S. businesses, and is rapidly expanding service availability throughout the country. KDDI America provides its clients with scalable bandwidth -- anywhere from 1 Mbps to 10 Gbps -- over its own international Ethernet network.

The network expansion is the latest development in KDDI America's efforts to make its telecommunications services readily available to U.S. companies. The provider is expanding its presence in the United States by installing its own Layer 2 (Ethernet) switches in key data centers around the country as backbone hubs and working closely with local and regional Ethernet and dark-fiber providers to connect client offices into this high-speed backbone, providing clients with fully managed, end-to-end Ethernet networks.

"The ongoing roll-out of our Ethernet service within the U.S. allows us to provide a comprehensive suite of telecommunications services many businesses are seeking," says Emiko Komatsu, KDDI America's marketing manager. "As we continue to strengthen our Ethernet presence in the United States by placing more switches in key locations nationwide and further expand our network reach to Europe in the near future, we successfully meet the needs of U.S. corporations looking to unify their high-speed European and North American Ethernet networks."
