NTT Communications announced the launch of international data network services in India to meet the needs for Mobility, e-Commerce, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud and Big Data.

The acquisition of this licence in India follows the initiation of construction of the company’s two data centers in Mumbai and Bangalore, through Netmagic, a subsidiary of NTT Com.

NTT Com acquired Virtual Network Operator – International Long Distance (VNO-ILD) network licence in March. NTT Com has been providing Arcstar Universal One services as its international network services, by partnering with local carriers. The company implements its own value-added services such as Network Virtualization Functions (NVF), while utilizing the infrastructure of its partner carriers in India.

NTT Com has decided to invest more than $160 million on the two data centers, which will become operational by April 2018. These data centers will add nearly 500,000 square feet of gross floor space at full build. This brings NTT Com’s total gross footprint to 1,100,000 square feet in India.

“India has been a strategic market for us with the accelerating shift of IT services from traditional enterprise data centres into the cloud-based services,” said NTT Com President and CEO Tetsuya Shoji.

NTT Com’s business in India has consistently grown over 35 percent annually for the past few years.

“Our strategy is to accommodate this demand and ensure that our network service offering and data centres enable our ICT clients with rich IT infrastructure for maximum connectivity and enhanced productivity. With this two new data centers, Netmagic becomes one of the largest data center service providers in India,” said Sharad Sanghi MD and CEO of Netmagic.

The new data centers in Mumbai and Bangalore will be accommodating 2,750 racks / 22 MW power and 1,500 racks / 15 MW power respectively. With NTT Com’s high-speed, high-volume Internet backbone and network services, customers can accelerate their business development to meet the increasing demand of Cloud services.
