NTT Com Launches its Arcstar Universal One Virtual

NTT Com announced the global launch of Arcstar Universal One Virtual, which allows users to easily create, use and control overlay networks on-demand via existing corporate networks or the Internet using software-defined network (SDN) technology. An online portal facilitates real-time service activation and greatly reduces the time to add or change network configurations. NTT Com is planning to further enhance Arcstar Universal One Virtual with APIs.

To minimize latency, NTT Com has established Arcstar Universal One Virtual platforms on the East Coast of the United States and in the United Kingdom, joining existing platforms in Japa. Additional platforms will be established on the U.S. West Coast, Hong Kong and Singapore after July.

Arcstar Universal One Virtual is now available in 27 countries, including 12 in the Asia Pacific, 11 in the EU, Middle East and Africa, and 4 in the Americas.

Earlier in May, NTT Communications announced three new SDN-powered capabilities for its Arcstar Universal One virtual private network (VPN) service, which is available in nearly 200 countries.

By the end of May, NTT Comm will add:
  • Multi-cloud - enterprise customers will be able to connect to services on private clouds other than NTT Com's Enterprise Cloud, such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services.
  • Asset Light - the Arcstar Universal One Advanced Option menu will offer an application acceleration function that does not require additional hardware at the enterprise's locations. End-to-end communications via the cloud, including from customer endpoints and applications on mobile devices, can be rapidly deployed by the enterprise via a portal for accelerated performance and on a reduced cost basis.
  • Multi-client - Arcstar Universal One Virtual, a virtual network service first launched in Japan, will now be introduced on a global basis. Global customers will use this function for highly secure cloud connection via various devices, such as PCs, smartphones and tablets, and various networks, such as Arcstar Universal One, the Internet and the networks of other service providers. This function will also be a world's first.
NTT Com said it is able to leverage SDN to shorten the provisioning time for these new services, as well as lower operational costs.
