  • | VNA | April 28, 2011 09:37 AM

Japan\'s NTT Communications Corp. (NTT Com) and the Vietnam Internet Network Information Center (VNNIC) will cooperate in providing Internet service providers (ISPs) and Internet content providers (ICPs) in Vietnam with global access via NTT Com\'s Tier-1 network, beginning no later than the end of June.

According to an agreement between the two sides announced on April 26, NTT Com will work with local partners to provide direct connection to NTT Com\'s Tier-1 network via VNNIC-prepared infrastructure. The result will give ISPs and ICSs a new option for providing customers with enhanced, low-latency Internet environments and robust connection to content and services worldwide. NTT Com\'s Tier-1 IP backbone network offers direct connections to ISPs in more than 150 countries.

The collaboration also will enable VNNIC, an IPv6 facilitator, to provide companies in Vietnam with IPv6/IPv4 dual-stack connectivity to the world-class Tier-1 IPv6 network powered by NTT Com.

NTT Communications Vietnam, NTT Com\'s local subsidiary, will collaborate with VNNIC on service provision, as well as provide end-user companies with technical support for transitioning to IPv6.

According to NTT Com, VNNIC, a Ministry of Information and Communications affiliate that manages domain names and Internet exchange points, approached NTT Com to collaborate in meeting the growing demand for access in Vietnam, where Internet traffic has increased more than four times in the past three years.
