NTT America expands IP network presence in Brazil

NTT America (NYSE: NTT) and its Latin American counterpart NTT do Brasil are jointly expanding their presence in the region by building out a new point of presence (PoP) in Sao Paulo.

Already a well known in Latin America, the two service providers believe the new PoP will enable them to better serve LatAm service providers and provide content delivery network (CDN) services to video providers.

"Sao Paulo is the ideal location to establish our first global IP network PoP in South America--it's the epicenter of Latin America's emerging marketplace with many opportunities for companies looking to increase their global footprint and drive the market forward," said Michael Wheeler, vice president of NTT America's Global IP Network business unit.

The latest network expansion will serve two purposes: provide more services to local service providers and CDN providers, and provide connectivity to the growing base of service providers looking to extend their reach into Latin America in response to their multinational corporation (MNC) customer needs.
