“Strengthening our connectivity with NTT Communications' industry-leading Tier-1 IP backbone provides a solid foundation for PLDT and our customers to adopt new business models that will enable all to transform digitally and to connect the Philippines with the global market seamlessly.
We chose NTT Communications because of our long-standing strategic partnership that goes back many years. NTT Communications has been a leader in the global telecoms space, having made significant investments in network infrastructure and the delivery of highly reliable services.”
Building a Strong Network Infrastructure to Meet Demand
Today, the explosion of digital technologies and platforms is changing the way companies operate as well as how consumers live and work. PLDT sees ample business opportunities arising from the rampant growth in data consumption driven by emerging disruptive technologies such as Big Data, the Cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT) and video streaming. The fast growing demand these changes place on its network infrastructure has led to a rising need to handle the flood of inbound IP traffic arising from customer demand and data consumption.
The company is looking to build a solid IP network infrastructure that can strategically advance its wide spectrum of telecoms and digital services, including networks, data centers and digital content business that are all currently immersed in digital transformation.
PLDT has chosen NTT Communications, its long-standing strategic partner that has gained its confidence and trust with highly reliable and quality service, to deploy PLDT’s first 100 gigabit-per-second (100G) network infrastructure to meet the fast-growing needs of the market.
Strengthening International Connectivity with 100G
To address rising expectations for network reliability, performance and increasing bandwidth, NTT Communications brought an array of IP solutions, combining the company’s world-class Tier-1 Global IP backbone and 100G digital coherent technology to PLDT.
Ultra-broadband 100G Fiber-optic Data Network: NTT Communications’ 100G ultra-bandwidth connectivity empowers PLDT to handle traffic bursts and scale up fast to accommodate unprecedented subscriber demands. The IP networks have a 100% Service Level Agreement (SLA) reliability guarantee, with ultra-low jitter and low latency.
Tier-1 IP Backbone: Backed by a top-ranked, Tier-1 IP backbone, NTT Communications Global IP Network Service will deliver high-capacity IP connectivity covering Asia, North and South America, Europe and Oceania to better serve PLDT’s individual and enterprise customers. By seamlessly connecting to NTT Communications’ global IP backbone and leveraging our “Community” tool, PLDT can flexibly manage, control and configure the network routing of international traffic dynamically, based on their business needs. Our Black Hole Service also grants a special community to a route, thereby automatically discarding packets to an IP address within the network to which the black hole community was granted. This is an ideal way to protect PLDT from potential damage when the network is under a large-scale DDoS attack.
Worldwide Customer Support: Last but not least, NTT Communications provides a wide variety of high value services tailored to customers’ business needs through the Network Operation Center (NOC) which provides 7 x 24 x 365 worldwide customer support.
Accelerating Business Growth
NTT Communications’ optimized 100G fiber-optic data network has been delivering several benefits associated with scalability, performance and cost:
Highly Reliable & Scalable Network: The expanded 100G fiber-optic network is optimized to handle larger volume of IP traffic and data, which allows PLDT to scale up flexibly to meet consumer and enterprise expectations for high quality, high bandwidth services associated with the rise of disruptive technologies and digital transformation needs.
Lower Cost and Enhanced Efficiency: By leveraging 100G, NTT Communications helps PLDT minimize the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and simplify network planning. The enhanced technology is more efficient in terms of utilization, as the size of the headers and footers is reduced during packet transmission to avoid the common issues of an ISP’s imbalanced traffic among connections, which ultimately translates into better performance with improved efficiency and cost-saving in the longer term.
Promise of Always-on Connectivity: Most importantly, flexibility and reliability are guaranteed with NTT Communications’ outstanding Global IP Network service. Leveraging a highly resilient network designed with multi-routing capability, empowered by NTT Communications’ global coverage of submarine cable networks, PLDT can be rest-assured that communication services will not be disrupted during disasters or under any circumstance. This is a promise of always-on connectivity that NTT Communications has never failed to deliver on for our customers.
