The new capability, which extends MPLS IP-VPN services along the east coast, also enhances NTT America’s ability to serve overseas companies investing in Greater Boston. Parent company NTT Communications provides more than 100,000 MPLS ports around the world, reveals a representative.

Boston is considered a key economic, communications, and transportation center, home to many finance and technology companies, and particularly as a hub for the biotechnology sector. The new capability brings greater depth to the company's expanding U.S. network to satisfy local customer needs for low-latency, cost-effective global connectivity, adds the spokesperson.

"As we observe further growth of our business in overseas markets, it becomes even more critical to partner with a provider who has strong reach to such markets as well as continuous commitment to expand their U.S. investment," says Mike Doyle, director, IS Operations telecommunications, Millipore. "We are happy to see this local expansion that will enhance their ability to satisfy our needs for low-latency, cost-effective global connectivity."

"NTT America is committed to extending and deepening our North American reach and Boston is a key part of that strategy," says Jun Nojima, vice president of the Enterprise Solution Business Unit for NTT America. "Based upon demand from our customers in the US and around the World, we identified Boston as an important step in our US expansion, and are very pleased to be able to support the global requirements of companies who have invested in the Greater Boston metropolitan area."
