NTT Com announced today the expansion of its Global IP Network with a new point-of-presence (PoP) in Marseille, France. The city is the interconnection point for several international subsea cables that link Europe to Africa, the Middle East and Asia. NTT Com's new PoP in Marseille will facilitate the delivery of reliable, high-quality wholesale IP services between these high-growth markets and Europe.In addition to running one of the world's top-ranked global tier-1 IP backbones, NTT Com offers a state-of-the-art DDoS Protection Service that enables Internet service providers (ISP), network operators, communications companies and Internet-centric businesses to deliver leading-edge network capabilities while keeping online assets secure from sophisticated cyber threats. As DDoS attacks become more frequent and complex, NTT Com offers the technology, experience and flexibility that companies need to design and implement a comprehensive defense strategy. Being offline, even for a few minutes, could represent for many providers thousands and even millions of euros in lost revenues, and it is imperative that companies understand how to respond to attacks immediately and have a reliable partner to work with.

The Global Carrier Awards recognize innovation, vision and excellence in the global wholesale industry. The winners will be announced at Capacity Europe 2015 on November 3, 2015 in Paris.
