Key Product/Service Highlights

·                     NTT is the largest telecommunications company in Asia, and is the second largest in the world.

·                     NTT Communications is a leader in global networking, providing over 100,000 MPLS ports around the world. The company leads quality improvement initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond, working closely with global carrier partners through the Arcstar Carrier Forum, an ongoing access and operational quality improvement program.

·                     The NTT Communications global backbone architecture has been designed with full redundancy and automatic reroute to support mission critical data, voice and video applications.

·                     NTT Communications can provide support for complex customer routing environments. Static, BGP and EIGRP routing options are available between CE and PE routers, as well as support for load sharing and redundancy designs.

·                     NTT Communications provides a mature platform for the integration and quality of service (QoS) management of voice, video and data through the company’s 7-class Priority Control Service (PCS), adhering to industry standards for classification, congestion management, queuing and end-to-end delivery of IP packet data.

·                     The Arcstar Global IP-VPN service features Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for restoration time, outage notification, on-time delivery, transmission delay, availability and data delivery ratio. SLAs are also enhanced with the use of QoS; prioritized traffic will receive a higher SLA commitment.

·                     NTT Communications also offers optional managed router services including global procurement, configuration, installation, monitoring and maintenance of customer premise devices used to connect to the MPLS service. All locations are not required to have managed CPE, giving customers the flexibility to mix and match these deployments wherever needed, effectively filling gaps in remote IT presence while keeping control where IT expertise is available. NTT Communications manages both the router and the circuit.

·                     The Arcstar Global IP-VPN service supports native IP Multicast over a managed network. The standard implementation offers PIM-SM (sparse mode) and PIM-SSM (source specific multicast). Use of multicast can be determined on a per port basis.

·                     NTT Communications’ web-based Traffic Reporting Service provides Arcstar MPLS customers with network utilization, performance information (latency, packet loss, jitter, etc.), service outage information and trouble ticket resolutions via a web portal anywhere and anytime.
