NTT Europe, a member of the NTT Communications Group, says it has invested to extend its Tier 1 global IP network further into Central Europe with a new point of presence (PoP) in Interxion’s data center in Vienna.

Clive Hamilton, head of global IP network at NTT Europe said, “Choosing the right hubs is key for us in getting closer to our customers and to providing the market with a greater choice of high quality IP providers."

Vienna is a busy regional hub for Central and Eastern Europe, one of the most developed Internet markets outside of the three traditional core locations -- Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and London. Connectivity into and out of Vienna gives NTT Comunication's customers a much wider choice, increases the competitive landscape, and extends its fiber-optic network footprint to reach new customers.

Interxion is a provider of cloud and carrier-neutral collocation data centers in Europe, supporting over 1,200 customers through 32 data centers across 11 countries. Its data centers provide space, power, and cooling with reliability and performance that exceeds industry standards, the company claims.

Commenting on the decision to choose Interxion, Christian Studeny, managing director, Interxion Austria said, "NTT's network expansion into Interxion's data center in Vienna builds on their presence at seven of our other data center facilities across Western Europe. NTT are now well placed to benefit from the facility's close proximity to Eastern Europe, as well as from the presence of over 150 customers already in the facility, many keen to take advantage of their global network for connectivity to all regions of the world."
