NTT Communications Commands the Conversation on Internet and Enterprise

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT, today announced the company participated in and sponsored several key conferences during the fourth quarter of 2012, offering insights and perspectives on developments in the Internet that will impact enterprises in 2013. At leading business conferences in the United States, executives from the company’s wholly owned U.S. subsidiary, NTT America, addressed technologies and trends shaping today’s global business decisions, notably mobile media consumption, cloud computing, software defined networks (SDN), and business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) in the era of big data.

In October, Ms. Teri Francis, NTT America’s Vice President of Customer Solutions, spoke at the Digital Hollywood Fall 2012 conference, joining industry leaders in a panel discussion about video across platforms – television, broadband and mobile – and understanding the three screen value proposition. As a leading provider of enterprise hosting, managed network and global IP networking services, NTT America has unique insight into how digital entertainment executives and content decision makers can cost effectively and securely offer anytime anywhere programming options, build social media networks, and launch content-rich apps to support growth and additional revenue opportunities.

During her talk, Ms. Francis emphasized the proliferation of mobile devices in the marketplace and consumers’ increasing preference to watch high-definition video on their mobile devices, as well as on televisions connected to the Internet. Shining the spotlight on NTT Communications’ global, high performance Internet backbone, she discussed why the company’s network architecture is optimal for video distribution and delivery to any screen anywhere in the world.

At the Gartner Symposium / ITxpo 2012 in October, Mr. Kazuhiro Gomi, NTT America’s CEO, and Mr. Doug Junkins, CTO, led a workshop to help executives visualize how to improve productivity and reduce costs with software defined networking, network virtualization and the global cloud. The interactive workshop addressed what companies need to know to formulate or enhance their global cloud strategy and action plan, covering opportunities and benefits of software defined networking and network virtualization for the global cloud. NTT Communications is the first service provider to apply SDN technology through the OpenFlow protocol to its Infrastructure-as-as Service (IaaS) offering, the NTT Com Enterprise Cloud.

In November, attendees of Light Reading’s Ethernet Expo Americas 2012 gained insight from NTT Communications’ first mover advantage in software defined networks. Mr. Junkins delivered a keynote presentation during which he profiled potential cost-saving benefits that software defined networks provide network operators and the game-changing opportunities the technology presents service providers to differentiate their service and application portfolios.

In December, Mr. Craig Hurley, NTT America’s Director of Product Management, provided a detailed analysis of the main components required for a Recovery as a Service (RaaS) program at the Gartner Data Center Conference, educating data center professionals about how they can implement a RaaS program within a complete IT strategy. For enterprises grappling with the storage of ever growing volumes of data - on premise, in the cloud, or both - data audit, archive and recovery are becoming increasingly complex activities. Mr. Hurley highlighted NTT America’s Cloud Recovery, a solution that proves especially valuable to CIOs, as it provides fully managed BC/DR for mission-critical infrastructure, cloud-to-cloud or premises-to-cloud, in the event of planned or unplanned outages.

Apache Hadoop is a key technology for gaining business insights from your Big Data, but the penetration into enterprises is shockingly low. In fact, Apache Hadoop and Big Data proponents recognize that this technology has not yet achieved its game-changing business potential.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software sec...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridharabalan, founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, Inc., will focus on key challenges in building an Internet of Things solution infrastructure. He will shed light on efficient ways of defining interactions within IoT solutions, leading to cost and time reduction. He will also introduce ways to handle data and how one can develop IoT solutions that are lean, flexible and configurable, thus making IoT infrastructure agile and scalable.
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT de...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
