NTT Communications announced today it plans to go live with Global Super Link this summer, a virtual end-to-end Ethernet data transmission service that will link major cities around the world.
Global Super Link is the world’s first full-scale commercial service of its kind, providing enterprise users with high-speed, high-bandwidth, cost-effective global data transmission that accommodates their usage patterns.
According to the company, the service offers the security of a closed-network service over an open-network environment and is based on NTT’s Ethernet over MPLS technology.
Enterprise users can choose two transmission speed options of 45 Mbps or 100 Mbps depending on their bandwidth needs and data traffic patterns.
Users can transmit up to one TB of data per month for a fixed cost, after which they are charged per-gigabyte for any additional data transmission. Unlimited usage at a fixed monthly cost is available with the 45 Mbps option.
“Multinational corporations today are furthering their global collaboration in product development and design, which requires large volumes of data transmission among geographically dispersed locations,” said Kimio Tamura, vice president of NTT’s product management group.
NTT is a subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp.
