NTT’s Bangkok data centre to become international network hub

NTT Ltd. has announced that it will make its Bangkok data centre an international network exchange hub.

Partnering with internet exchange services companies, Japan Network Access Point (JPNAP) and Bangkok Neutral Internet Exchange (BKNIX), NTT stated that it has developed “international links” with both of them.

The company has established an internet exchange linkage in JPNAP’s Tokyo data centres and installed a Point of Presence (PoP) from BKNIX in its Bangkok data centre.

This means that NTT’s Bangkok 2 Data Center will now be able to better empower Internet Service Providers, Cloud Service Providers, and educational institutions in the area, as well as function as a content and internet traffic exchange hub.

“We’re pleased to be a part of this initiative to help drive the efficiency of Internet connectivity on an international level. With connectivity being paramount to business success, we hope this will unlock greater value for partners and providers, as they capture emerging market demands in today’s digital economy,” said Sutas Kongdumrongkiat, CEO of NTT in Thailand.

Ryuich Matsuo, NTT’s Executive Vice President for the Global Data Centers division, further added that: “Leveraging strengths in network carriers and its technical integration expertise, NTT delivers premium data center platforms around the world, giving our clients the power to deploy advanced services at the right place, with the right performance and support.”

He also stated that the company will continue to expand in 2021 by building new data centres in Indonesia, the US, UK, Germany, and Spain.
