NTT Communications Extends Global Connectivity to Laos

NTT Communications has signed an agreement with Lao National Internet Center (LANIC) to provide Internet service providers (ISPs) in Laos with global access via NTT Com’s Tier-1 network. NTT Com will work with LANIC to establish direct connections to NTT Com’s Tier-1 global IP network via LANIC infrastructure. The result will give ISPs a reliable service to provide end customers with enhanced and low-latency Internet access. NTT Com also will provide consultation to help local ISPs transition to IPv6 and strengthen security.

LANIC is an affiliate of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, which manages Internet exchange points and functions as a gateway for connections to global telecom carriers. NTT Com was selected as LANIC’s first partner to establish the International Internet Gateway (IIG), a platform to which all ISPs in Laos will connect.
