NTT Com Selects Infinera for Tokyo Metro Backbone

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has selected Infinera for its new IP backbone network in the Tokyo Metropolitan area. The new network will leverage Infinera's Digital Optical Networks to deliver a broader range of services with greater speed and flexibility to Internet Service Providers.

NTT Com operates an extensive infrastructure including the Arcstar Global IP-VPN and Global e-VLAN, as well as a Tier-1 IP backbone reaching more than 150 countries in partnership with major Internet service providers, and secure data centers in Asia, North America and Europe. Financial terms were not disclosed.

NTT Com's Tokyo Metropolitan area IP backbone network will leverage the digital intelligence of the Infinera Digital Optical Networks to achieve large capacity and network flexibility.

Infinera's Bandwidth Virtualization architecture puts a minimum of 100 Gbps of capacity throughout the network, enabling NTT Com to deliver to its customers a full range of services between any points on the network more quickly and cost-effectively than ever before. The GMPLS intelligence in the Infinera DTN network will enable NTT Com to deliver new services in days or minutes, as compared to weeks or months with traditional DWDM networks.
