NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) has announced the launch of international data network services in India through its affiliate NTT Communications India Network Services (NTTCINS). The acquisition of this license in India follows the initiation of construction of the company's two new data centers in Mumbai and Bangalore, through Netmagic, a subsidiary of NTT Com. This reinforces the company's commitment to enable customers with high-quality infrastructure services as well as the management and security services to meet their information and communications technology (ICT) outsourcing needs.

NTT Com acquired Virtual Network Operator – International Long Distance (VNO-ILD) network license in March this year. NTT Com has been providing Arcstar Universal One services as its international network services, by partnering with local carriers. The company implements its own value-added services such as network virtualization functions (NVF), while utilizing the infrastructure of its partner carriers in India. On top of this move, NTT Com has decided to invest more than 1072 crore (USD 160 million) on the two data centers, which will become operational by April 2018. These data centers will add nearly 500,000 square feet of gross floor space. This brings NTT Com's total gross footprint to 1,100,000 square feet in India.

Built on the global design standards of NTT Com, the new data centers in Mumbai and Bangalore will be accommodating 2750 racks/22 MW power and 1500 racks/15 MW power respectively. With NTT Com's high-speed, high-volume Internet backbone and network services, customers can accelerate their business development to meet the increasing demand of cloud services.

'India has been a key strategic market for us with the accelerating shift of IT services from traditional enterprise data centers into the cloud-based services. For the past few years, our business in India has consistently grown over 35 percent annually. With further expansion of data center foot print and addition of international data network services to our service portfolio, we aim to meet the growing market needs for Mobility, e-Commerce, Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud, and Big Data.'
