London, UK, and Gunzenhausen, Germany – May 11, 2015 – 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 selected by leading web hosting provider and data center operator Hetzner Online to supply 100GE IP transit services to support its rapid growth in Germany and abroad. NTT Communications is the first Tier-1 global provider of 100GE connectivity to Hetzner Online.
Clive Hamilton, vice president of Network Services – EMEA at NTT Europe, said, “We are excited to partner with Hetzner Online for its first 100GE connectivity. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the technical capabilities and global reach of our Global IP Network and support Hetzner Online’s demand for higher network capacity.” Hamilton continued, “NTT Communications led the way a few years ago in the transition to 10GE ports and we are leading again with 100GE technology.”
Hetzner Online ranks among the top global players in the web hosting market with customers in more than 150 countries. “In view of our increasing volume of data traffic, we plan to use 100GE connections for all future uplinks to avoid potential congestions,” said Martin Hetzner, CEO of Hetzner Online AG, “With this new 100GE connectivity and NTT Com’s world-class service, Hetzner Online is able to quickly and cost-effectively meet our customers’ traffic demands in Germany and abroad at any time.”
