NTT Communications Asserts Dominance in Global IP Services Market

NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the global data and IP services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT (NYSE: NTT), announced today that it has been named as one of the top two global wholesale IP providers of 2013, according to new data by Renesys, a leading independent research firm. For the second year running, the company took one of the top two spots in an influential 2013 global ranking of leading wholesale IP providers, consolidating NTT Com’s dominance of an increasingly competitive market and highlighting its resolve to continue investing in new infrastructure and technology around the world.

Commenting on the performance, Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of NTT Communications’ Global IP Network at NTT America, said: “We are delighted with these results but we most certainly do not intend to rest on our laurels. We have worked hard to grow our business in a number of key markets around the world over the last twelve months and we will continue those efforts as we go into 2014.”

In one of its strongest performances since Renesys first started compiling the closely watched wholesale rankings, NTT Com scooped an unprecedented number of top slots.

In Asia, the company reinforced its indisputable position as the leading provider of wholesale IP services, again topping the ranking while in North America, the provider ranked third (up from eighth at the end of 2012) and in Europe, sixth (up from ninth a year before). The company was the only provider to command a top-six ranking in all three strategically crucial regions. A report on the Renesys rankings, published by Capacity Magazine in its Wholesale World 2014 yearbook, indicates that in Europe “NTT Com experienced another strong year” while in North America the company, ranked third, is “closing the gap” on the second place provider.

NTT Com also held top spots in other fast-growing IP markets, ranking fourth in Oceania / Australia and sixth in Africa.

Renesys mines a vast database of Internet routing information to produce a series of league tables comprising the top wholesale IP service providers across various regions and markets. The rankings, based on a metric called “wholesale customer base score” related to services on the IPv4 protocol, are widely recognized throughout the industry.

In a separate but equally closely scrutinized review of the world’s leading Internet service providers, also published by Renesys, NTT Com finished in one of the top two spots as well. The list, which is known as the Baker’s Dozen, charts the fortunes of the leading 13 IP services players in the world each year. Authors of the report noted that competition for the number two slot was “brutal” but NTT Com sealed the position following significant customer wins in North America and Europe.

As Renesys explains, the data analyzed for the Baker’s Dozen is related to IPv4 and shows global scores. It concludes that the battle for global Internet dominance is likely to play out in Asia, where NTT Com is already strong. As companies “become more sophisticated consumers of Internet traffic,” it continues, “they will seek connectivity alternatives that will keep their own consumers happy.”

According to Wheeler, NTT Com is poised to gain even more ground in this competitive IP landscape. “We have the worldwide network scale, the expertise and the financial capabilities to help our customers expand globally,” he said.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...

The last two years has seen discussions about cloud computing evolve from the public / private / hybrid split to the reality that most enterprises will be creating a complex, multi-cloud strategy.

Will this approach be successful? How large is the ...
