NTT Communications Gets by With a Little Help from its Friend Hibernia Networks

Sometimes strategic partnerships are formed by businesses in order to expand their organization and gain access to new capabilities that will enable them to measure up to increasing customer demands. It looks like that is exactly what happened recently when Hibernia Networks, a global capacity services provider, was selected by NTT (News - Alert) Communications to make 100 Gigabits of network capacity available to the NTT Communications Global IP Network (GIN).

Through forming this collaborative effort, Hibernia Networks will become responsible for ensuring various terrestrial and subsea crossing routes perform as expected.  

“As NTT Communications (News - Alert) continues extending its global footprint to meet increasing data demand, we selected Hibernia Networks to expand our network infrastructure because of its technology, experience and personalized support,” Chris Lathrop, senior director Network Infrastructure, NTT Communications Global IP Network for NTT America (News - Alert), said in a statement. “We required a diverse route from key European points to the west coast of the US, and Hibernia was able to design complex solutions that would encompass multiple routes.”

NTT Communications is touted as one of the biggest telecommunication companies in the world and at this time works with multiple enterprises and service providers spread throughout 150 countries. In fact, its suite of solutions includes an IPv4/IPv6 global Tier-1 IP network as well as 130 secure data centers. On the other hand, Hibernia Networks robust and ever-changing network technology powers next generation services that organizations within North America, Europe and Asia can take advantage of.

“By providing NTT Communications with our carefully engineered diverse network capacity, Hibernia plays a pivotal role in meeting maximum uptime for their clients along with furthering positive customer experiences,” added Eric Gutshall, president of Wholesale for Hibernia Networks. “The additional Hibernia capacity serves to link NTT Communications’ Asia, U.S. and European markets. We look forward to growing our relationship with this trusted partner.”

NTT Communications has inked various partnerships as of late. For example, back in December it teamed with FirstBIT, a Russian provider of enterprise reporting and business intelligence solutions, to enhance its footprint within Russia.

Through leveraging the Russian firm’s 1C Enterprise and QlikView Business Discovery platform, the company will benefit significantly from enabling end-users to communicate in a much more efficient and cost-effective manner.

Only a mere weeks before that, Juniper Networks (News - Alert), a business deeply rooted in the networking solutions space, stated that its T1600 Core Router is now being utilized by NTT Communications to power its intuitive video transmission system. To read the full report, click here.

Clearly 2012 was a busy one for NTT and it likely 2013 will be no different.
