NTT America Announces Availability of Global Virtual Link Ethernet Solution08:00 EDT Tuesday, July 26, 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 the release of Global Virtual Link, the next evolution of its Ethernet solution that offers customers such as content providers and Internet service providers (ISPs) direct connectivity among their multiple locations. With the release of Global Virtual Link, NTT America has enabled its customers to establish international point-to-point Global Virtual Link direct connections to Point of Presence (POP) locations in Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and all of Europe, in addition to connections throughout the United States. “We're excited to be able to extend our Global Virtual Link Direct service to international markets,” said Michael Wheeler, vice president of NTT America's Global IP Network (GIN) business unit. “As our customers – many of whom are global service providers and content networks – continue to look to the cloud for cost-effective network solutions, extending our Global Virtual Link service to POPs in Asia and Europe was a natural next step.” Global Virtual Link provides a point-to-point architecture that enables NTT America customers to establish a seamless connection between two locations by integrating Wide Area Network (WAN) reach into existing Ethernet-based Local Area Networks (LAN). The service allows dedicated bandwidth from 100 Mbps to 10Gbps, leveraging the reach and reliability of the NTT Com Global Tier-1 IP Network. As a virtual point-to-point connection operating over the NTT Communications network, Global Virtual Link allows NTT America's global customers to efficiently deliver content through major Internet network nodes and data centers located both in the U.S. and abroad.
