LONDON, 8th February 2013 – NTT Communications, a member of the NTT Group - the number one Fortune Global 500 telecommunications company - announced it has collaborated with TDC, Denmark’s leading provider of communications solutions, to provide NTT Communications with access capacity into the Nordic region. In parallel to this, NTT Communications will provide TDC with an extension to its Asia-Pac network through NTT Com’s Global data network services.
Commenting on the agreement, Bob Welton, Regional Manager for UK and Northern Europe, said, “This is the perfect time for NTT to be actively working with customers in the Nordics. With export to Asia increasing substantially and many companies seeking to capitalize on opening in new markets, the Nordic’s economy has never been more connected with Asia.” Welton continues, “With our experience, knowledge and capability of delivering services in Asia, NTT can provide real value to organizations in the Nordics, by helping them take advantage of this opportunity. TDC’s extensive network coverage in the Nordic region, reputation for quality, together with a strong enterprise client base, made them a natural fit for collaboration in the region. This partnership will be a key step in ensuring we achieve our goal of becoming the Nordics’ number one choice for IT communications with Asia.”
Through this collaboration, NTT Communications will work with new and existing customers in the Nordics to provide extended reach into the rest of world, with a focus on Asia. The Nordic region includes some of the most stable and prosperous economies in Europe, supported by thriving manufacturing and service industries. This extension will give customers access to NTT’s network and cloud services, helping organizations to gain greater competitive advantage in their global operations and connect with growth opportunities in the Asian market.
