TOKYO, June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NTT Communications (NTT Com)
announced today that the company will launch Global Super Link, a virtual
end-to-end Ethernet data transmission service. The service will be available
between Japan and the United States on July 1st, 2005, followed by a worldwide
rollout linking major cities.
Global Super Link is the world's first full-scale commercial service of
its kind, providing enterprise users with high-speed, high-bandwidth,
cost-effective global data transmission that accommodates their usage
patterns. The service offers the security of a closed-network service over an
open-network environment, taking advantage of NTT Com's Ethernet over MPLS
technology based on its Tier 1 backbone and world class network management.
Enterprise users can choose two transmission speed options of 45 Mbps or
100 Mbps depending on their bandwidth needs and data traffic patterns. Users
can transmit up to one terabyte of data per month for a fixed cost, after
which they are charged per-gigabyte for any additional data transmission.
Unlimited usage at a fixed monthly cost is available with the 45 Mbps option.
"Multinational corporations today are furthering their global
collaboration in product development and design, which requires large volumes
of data transmission among geographically dispersed locations," says Kimio
Tamura, Vice President of the Product Management Group at NTT Com's Global
Services Business Division. "Global Super Link provides corporate users with
an alternative to leased circuits for high-volume data transfers while
maintaining quality and pricing flexibility."
