NTT creates its first direct presence in Dublin with Equinix




There is no sign of Dublin’s data centre services demand slumping any time soon, which is why NTT has made the move to boost its offering in Ireland’s captial city, at a time when the data centre hyperscalers aren’t being slow off the mark around the city either.

NTT Communications is expanding its Tier-1 Global IP Network with a new point-of-presence in Dublin, Ireland, at Equinix’s DB1 data centre. NTT says the new PoP will support growing demand for IP transit services from global companies and organisations that have established their European headquarters and operations in Dublin.

Equinix’s DB1 data centre in Dublin is one of the most densely connected IBX facilities in Ireland. It is NTT Com’s first location in the city and “reflects the company’s commitment to the expanding internet-centric, cloud service, content and digital media community in the area”, said NTT.

NTT Com customers at DB1 will be able to connect to its Global IP Network at numerous capacity levels, including 100G ports with confirmed diversity and direct connections to Amsterdam and London, to ensure reliability and low latency.

“The new PoP in Dublin fits our strategy to take NTT Com’s global backbone into some of the fastest-growing internet markets,” said Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America.

“This location will not only serve new customers looking for high-capacity, high-quality IP transit services, but also many of our current global customers that have established operations or are considering expansions in the Dublin area. Overall, this is a very exciting market for us,” Wheeler said.

NTT Com’s Global IP Network covers North and South America, Asia, Europe and Oceania.
