NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), has announced the expansion of its Tier-1 Global IP Network with two new Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Berlin and Frankfurt, located at e-shelter data center facilities. e-shelter is a European data center operator and a subsidiary of NTT Communications, also the parent company of NTT Com.
NTT Com is deploying its new PoP in Frankfurt, the company’s fourth location in the city, at e-shelter’s Datacenter Campus Frankfurt 1. With about 60,000 square meters of data center and technical space, this carrier-neutral facility is e-shelter’s main colocation site in Europe. The new PoP in Berlin is located at e-shelter’s Campus Berlin, the company’s second largest colocation site in Germany with 13,000 square meters, situated in the administrative district of Spandau.
As NTT Com continues to expand in Europe, the new PoPs in Berlin and Frankfurt will facilitate the company’s delivery of IP solutions to Internet-centric businesses, Internet service providers (ISPs) and Internet content providers (ICPs) in Germany, and also offer more connectivity options to foreign companies looking to add services in these two highly strategic markets. Customers will have access to NTT Com’s Global IP Network and its IP transit services, Layer 2 Ethernet solutions and DDoS Protection Service.
“We are thrilled to extend our footprint into Berlin and add a new location in Frankfurt,” said Clive Hamilton, Vice President of Network Services at NTT Europe. “These PoPs will help us continue to offer our growing number of customers in Germany and neighboring countries the high-performance IP solutions they need to support content, online video, hosting, gaming, and other bandwidth-intensive applications.”

With a presence in all key city-markets of the DACH-region, e-shelter leverages 300 MW of power capacity and 90,000 square meters of data center space to deliver scalable data center solutions.
