GTT, a virtual network operator focused on the multinational enterprise segment, has opened a new U.S.-based client service center. Based in Iowa, GTT said this service center will be able to support the increasing number of MNC and wholesale service provider customers that use its global network.
The service provider has been growing its network and service set through a series of organic and acquisitions.
Last month, GTT established a new point of presence (PoP) in Japan's capitol city to provide multinational corporations a connection point into Asia, which complements its presence in the Singapore and Hong Kong markets.
It has also been active on the acquisition front, purchasing Inteliquent and nLayer Communications. By acquiring Inteliquent, the service provider immediately expanded its Ethernet interconnectivity capabilities. It also gained 1,100 customers that are served by 120 points of presence in 24 countries.
