NTT Com’s Japan-U.S. Bandwidth Tops 600 Gbps

NTT Communications has once again boosted the data-transmission capacity of its Global IP Network between Japan and the United States, giving it 600 Gbps of capacity on this route. The carrier reports a seven-fold increase in its Japan-U.S. bandwidth between 2005 and 2010. This latest jump-from 500 Gbps to 600 Gbps in just four months-aims to cater to even stronger demand being generated in today’s cloud-computing, micro-blogging, social network and online media-intensive environment.
