NTT America establishes network presence in Boston, Mass.

NTT America has made Boston, Mass. its latest U.S. network expansion point by building a Point of Presence (PoP) for its Arcstar global network managed network services in the city.

Given NTT America's domestic and global network connections, the new PoP, which extends its MPLS IP-VPN services along the East Coast, will likely resonate with Boston-based multi-national companies that need connectivity to Asia-Pacific through its connection with parent company NTT. Boston is a strategic market for NTT America as the city and surrounding suburbs are a hub for a number of finance and technology companies, including the burgeoning biotechnology sector.

Interestingly, NTT's announcement of its Boston PoP came with the endorsement of biotech company Millipore. "As we observe further growth of our business in overseas markets, it becomes even more critical to partner with a provider who has strong reach to such markets as well as continuous commitment to expand their U.S. investment," said Mike Doyle, Director, IS Operations telecommunications, Millipore in a release. "We are happy to see this local expansion that will enhance their ability to satisfy our needs for low-latency, cost-effective global connectivity."

In addition to serving Boston-area companies, NTT America's Boston PoP will appeal foreign companies that want to invest in Greater Boston.
