Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, NTT Communications was founded in 1999 as the wholly owned subsidiary of NTT, one of the world's largest telecommunication companies.
NTT Communications provides a broad range of global networks, management solutions, and IT services to customers worldwide. The company is renowned for reliable, high-quality security, hosting, voice, data and IP services, as well as expertise in managed networks and leadership in IPv6 transit technology.
With operations in 196 countries/regions worldwide, NTT Communications faces some interesting challenges as one of the world’s largest Internet providers.
Managing a diverse network as large as theirs requires effective solutions that don’t introduce complexity. In addition, NTT has rigourous standards for quality, and needed a solution that would scale reliably with their network.
NTT selected Sandvine's Policy Traffic Switch (PTS) for a nationwide deployment on their high speed network.
The PTS—Sandvine’s Policy and Charging Enforcement Function/Traffic Detection Function (PCEF/TDF)—provides data-plane features to enable a wide range of network policy control and policy management use cases, allowing NTT to better understand and manage their network.
