KDDI Corporation will add first overseas points in six cities in three countries to provide "KDDI Internet Gateway," an internet connection service for corporate clients. The service will be available in New York City, Los Angeles, San Jose and Pal Alto in the United States, as well as Hong Kong and Singapore starting on May 18, 2011.
By adding the service areas, customers can access to high-capacity and high quality internet connection in Japan, the United States, Hong Kong and Singapore through the usage of "KDDI Internet Gateway." The service meets professional telecommunication demands of clients such as telecom operators, internet service providers and contents providers who prefer wide-band internet environments as they can directly access to IX (internet Exchange point) in Japan and the United States from Hong Kong and Singapore through high-capacity IP backbones using KDDI's submarine cables within Japan, across the Pacific Ocean and around Asia.
The service allows unique choices to customers, who can choose services of IPv4 only, IPv6 only, or IPv4 and IPv6 on one line, and connect by BGP (Global AS) or Static. Three kinds of interface, including 10GBase-LR, 1000Base-SX and LX are available. With safe management support and high SLA based on 15 years of service provision since the wake of the Internet, restoration operations will take place by confirming the condition immediately through 24 hours/365 days maintenance system in the case of accidents.
KDDI intends to further expand its backbones and add more areas for service operations.
KDDI Corporation is the only telecom company in Japan that provides broad services ranging from fixed line to mobile communications. With more than 50 years of strong tie-up with overseas telecom companies, top-class line volume in Asia, and high-quality network development in the United States and Europe, KDDI offers various services around the world using globally established "TELEHOUSE" data centers as its foundation.
