NTT America Becomes Premier Sponsor of NewNOG08:00 EDT Tuesday, March 22, 2011 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and a Tier-1 global IP network services provider, today announced that it has become a Diamond Sponsor of NewNOG. The premier sponsorship, which includes support for NewNOG events and activities, will enable NTT America to increase its presence in and participation with the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) community. NewNOG, a community based non-profit and current owner of NANOG, is an educational forum for the network operator and vendor communities. “Diamond Sponsorships are limited to only a small number of companies per year – companies that are true leaders in the space,” said Betty Burke, executive director of NewNOG. “NTT America was a natural fit for this premier level of sponsorship given their strong history in the market as well as their consistent involvement in the NANOG organization over the years.” NewNOG is focused on promoting dialog regarding the creation, maintenance and operation of Internet Protocol networks. The group provides an educational forum where the operators of backbone and enterprise networks share information and operational best practices. “NTT America has been a longtime supporter of NANOG, and we're looking forward to increasing our involvement with the organization during the coming year,” said Michael Wheeler, vice president, Global IP Network, at NTT America. “NewNOG is a valuable resource, and we appreciate the group's contribution to our industry.” For more information about NewNOG, its events and activities, visit https://newnog.org/index.php.
