Philippine telecommunications company, PLDT, has tapped on NTT Communications Corporation to boost its global network infrastructure by leveraging 100Gbps connectivity.

The connectivity is powered by NTT Com's Tier 1 Global IP backbone. According to NTT Com, the 100Gbps ultra-bandwidth connectivity will enable PLDT to handle traffic bursts and scale-up faster to accommodate subscribers' demands.

"We are thrilled to take our partnership with PLDT to the next level, by deploying the ultra-high-capacity 100Gbps link for PLDT to carry large volumes of global IP traffic," said Hideaki Ozaki, President and CEO of NTT Com Asia Limited. "We believe the enhanced connectivity for PLDT will largely increase its capacity in handling the anticipated massive explosion of data driven by the rise of disruptive technologies such as Cloud, Big Data, IoT and video streaming."

In addition, the ultra-high capacity will help PLDT improve the internet speed of both individual and enterprise customers.

"Strengthening our connectivity with NTT Com's industry-leading Tier 1 IP backbone provides a solid foundation for PLDT and our customers to adopt new business models that will enable all to transform digitally and to connect the Philippines with the global market seamlessly," said Manuel V. Pangilinan, Chairman and CEO of PLDT.
