NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) announced on May 21 that it reached an
agreement on May 19 with Brunei International Gateway (BIG), a joint venture of
government and telecommunications companies in Brunei, to collaborate in
providing local Internet service providers (ISPs) with IPv4/IPv6 dual stack
global access via NTT Com's Tier-1 global IP network.
Direct connections to NTT Com's Tier-1 network will be provided via BIG's local
infrastructure. The result will give ISPs highly reliable global infrastructure
for providing customers with high-performance, low-latency, cost-effective
global access with IPv6 capability.
BIG builds and operates communication infrastructure for connections to global
telecom carriers. NTT Com was selected as its first partner to establish an
International Internet Gateway (IIG) for ISPs in Brunei and nearby regions of
neighboring countries. Several local ISPs already connect separately to global
ISPs, but the IIG will unify connections for greater efficiency.
The partnership expands NTT Com's global Internet service in Southeast Asia,
following similar partnerships formed in Vietnam last year and in Laos this
past February. NTT Com looks forward to continue strengthening Internet access
and ICT environments throughout Asia in cooperation with government agencies
and other entities.
