APRIL 17, 2007 -- NTT America, a wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corp., today announced that it has expanded its networking capabilities to include Atlanta, GA. This new point-of-presence (PoP) represents the tenth U.S. market for NTT Communications Global IP Network (GIN) and it will offer local enterprises and service providers with new fiber routes and access to the Internet at connection speeds up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE).

NTT America's service offerings will be based in the Telx-owned 56 Marietta building, a 160,000 square-foot fully dedicated carrier hotel/interconnect facility that is home to the Southeast's largest concentration of telecommunication companies. Representatives for the carrier say the agreement will further establish NTT Communications as a leading global provider of 10-GbE support and service and of IPv6 technologies. Other managed service offerings at the location include firewalls, VPNs, IPS, and hardware.

"We established this facility in direct response to strong customer demand for high-quality network services in the Atlanta area," reports Kazuhiro Gomi, vice president of NTT America's GIN unit. "This agreement highlights the growth and strength of NTT Communications' global Tier 1 IP network, while also providing local enterprises and service providers with access to superior IPv6 capabilities and 10-GbE service."

"We're thrilled that NTT America has elected to expand its networking capabilities in Atlanta," adds Steve Moody, executive vice president & general manager of Solarcom. "NTT America has been a trusted partner to us and through its networking offerings, we are able to support our rapidly expanding business and ensure our customers receive the highest quality of service and best-of-breed solutions."
