NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced that it will expand the interconnection of its Nexcenter data centers in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan to enable client companies to connect with cloud and content services more flexibly than ever before.

On a sequential basis from this month, NTT Com will begin directly connecting its ecosystem with three major internet exchanges (IXs) in Japan to enable clients to access services offered by these IXs and various NTT Com partner companies. Thereafter, NTT Com will continue to expand this ecosystem centered on NTT Com’s Nexcenter data centers.

The initiative, which leverages Nexcenter’s support for Data Distribution Platform, is one of several ways NTT Com is expanding its ecosystem for flexible connection to diverse providers’ clouds and content services.

BBIX’s IX Connect Service and Japan Internet Exchange’s JPIX service, as well as the currently available Internet Multifeed’s JPNAP service, will be interconnected with major data centers that NTT Com operates in Tokyo and Osaka. The IXs will offer an expanding range of services that NTT Com clients will access by connecting to specific data centers via the Nexcenter Connect service, which is offered for a flat, low-cost fee.

The data centers will include the Tokyo No. 1 to No. 10 data centers, Yokohama No. 1 Data Center and Saitama No. 1 Data Center in the Tokyo area and the Osaka 1 to 3 data centers, Osaka 5 Data Center and the coming Osaka 6 and 7 data centers in the Osaka area.

NTT Com will enhance its ecosystem centered on Nexcenter data centers by expanding interconnectivity among partner companies. Client companies will benefit from diverse cloud and IT services offered by NTT Com partner companies via Nexcenter data centers.

Going forward, as a DX Enabler to realize DX for customers, NTT Com will develop various measures to provide Data Distribution Platform such as artificial intelligence services, data management, and servitization support services in addition to global IoT using eSIM and network services that flexibly link multiple clouds. Also, NTT Com expects to further expand its interconnection of various IXs and broaden its partnerships with other great service providers.
