NTT Communications Spotlights Network Automation and Big Data at PTC'13
Jan 21, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
NTT Communications Corp., a subsidiary of NTT, announced executives from the company's U.S. subsidiary will speak at PTC'13, the Pacific Telecommunications Council's annual conference and an Asia-Pacific telecommunications event, taking place 20-23 January in Honolulu, Hawaii.
According to the company, in alignment with the PTC'13 theme of Capacity, Capability, Collaboration, NTT Communications, a provider of transpacific network services, will offer its insight on game-changing opportunities and challenges presented by software defined networks (SDN) and big data for enterprises using transpacific networks and growing their businesses in Asia.
NTT Communications' low latency, high capacity submarine cable systems include the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE), a route across Asian hub cites/data centers, and the PC-1 cable, a route to Asia from the United States and back again. ASE enhances NTT Com's highly global network services by boosting the capacity and strengthening the redundancy of its Asian cable networks. NTT Com's PC-1, a transpacific, sub-sea network, provides a vital link between the United States and Asia and is particularly attractive to multinationals that require Asia-Pacific service. Additionally, the NTT Com Global IP Network, maintains a provisioned capacity for transporting data between the United States and Japan. The global infrastructure NTT Com owns and operates covers over 159 countries across Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe.
"NTT Communications is the best and only solution for anyone who's serious about transit between the United States and Japan," said Dave Engberg, CTO of Evernote. "Our customers expect the highest quality of service possible, and NTT Communications' direct routes to the markets that are the most critical to our business enable us to deliver just that."
NTT America's CTO Doug Junkins will participate on an Executive Insight Roundtable on Monday, 21 January at 11.45 HST. This panel of CTOs will highlight technological revolutions occurring at all layers of the Internet, ranging from physical components such as optical cross connects, to network elements for wireless, wireline, and satellite systems.
The panel will also cover architectures such as software defined networks and OpenFlow, and applications such as cloud-based software as a service. Traditional data centers are being replaced by software defined data centers connected by software defined networks, driven by everything from virtualization to flat data center networks, enabled in some cases by technologies such as passive optical switches. These capabilities are being exposed by network application programming interfaces (APIs), providing visibility and control to application developers. Junkins will elaborate on SDN from a network automation/API perspective and focus on how developing standard APIs will allow customers/operators to automate the provisioning and ongoing support of network connections.
Brent Duncan, vice president of sales and marketing for the Global IP Network (GIN) of NTT Communications, will join industry experts for the Topical Session 5, "Big Data, Big Bandwidth, Big Opportunity," on Tuesday, 22 January at 14.00 HST. In the telecommunications space, providers of undersea and terrestrial networks have responded to petabytes of data with additional capacity (and higher line rates) through planned or accelerated upgrades, or through new systems. As a result, it is possible to move large data sets across the globe and store them in new green data centers that house storage and processing systems with high-speed network interfaces.
NTT Communications provides consultancy, architecture, security and cloud services to optimize the information and communications technology (ICT) environments of enterprises.
