NTT America Unveils Global IP Network Support for Dynamic Network Services
Jun 25, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
NTT America, a U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corp. (NTT Com) and a global IP network services provider, announced the company is helping customers provide externally managed DNS options for corporations and enterprises that need global, 24/7 access and support through its dual stack, Tier-1 Global IP Network, as illustrated in a case study with Dynamic Network Services Inc. (Dyn Inc.), a provider of managed DNS.
When selecting an infrastructure partner, Dyn prioritized top criteria including an IPv6 ready, global network supported by engineering based customer service and chose NTT America to help power the Web infrastructure of customers like Zappos, Netflix and Twitter.
"For our customers, it's all about performance; our goal is to optimize the speed of response," said Tom Daly, Dyn's President and CTO. "That's why the only option is to go with a Tier-1 network and NTT America is one of the best in the world. The investment required to keep a global network running at the performance levels we need is one of the major factors in our choice of network partners."
Dyn noted its solutions for enterprises are based on the Dynect Platform, a scalable external DNS platform that directs Internet traffic, routes around outages and maximizes network performance.
"The kind of advanced solutions we are able to offer depends fundamentally on two things, technical expertise and innovation, as well as support and service levels that are second to none," said Daly. "One of the things about NTT America that really impressed us, and maybe it's because we are 90 percent staffed by engineers, is that if we have any issue or question, our calls are answered directly by a network engineer 24/7 in their Network Operations Center (NOC). You aren't routed to a call center where your call is triaged by someone who doesn't understand the issue. This is really critical to both us and our customers because we guarantee nearly 100 percent DNS resolution, just like NTT America guarantees 100 percent uptime."
"Both Dyn and NTT America share a keen understanding of Internet and network infrastructure and Dyn can leverage a wide variety of NTT America's infrastructure assets including financial stability, depth of services and a forward thinking approach on using innovation to help efficiently and cost effectively grow businesses," said Shuichi Ikeda, vice president of sales and business development for NTT America's Global IP Network Business Unit.
