NTT Communications to Address the 'Future of Content' at Capacity Latam 2017


Communications Corporation
(NTT Com), the global data and IP
services arm of Fortune Global 500 telecom leader NTT, announced today
that Michael
, executive vice president of NTT Communications Global IP
Network at NTT America, will participate in the keynote panel at this
week's Capacity Latam 2017 conference held in Rio de Janeiro.

Latam 2017
is the largest annual gathering of wholesale
telecommunications service providers, carriers, vendors, subsea-cable
and satellite companies in Latin America. The conference, that runs
March 28 and 29, is expected to draw more than 500 industry leaders from
over 150 companies.

Mr. Wheeler will be one of the panelists in the keynote discussion
"Understanding the Requirements for Carrying the Content of the Future"
on Tuesday, March 29th, at 9:50 a.m. local time. The panel
will focus on the relationships between content providers and global
carriers in Latin America and, at the same time, explore how new forms
of content are influencing the development of new infrastructure.

"Most countries are making a concerted effort to expand broadband access
while simultaneously seeking to increase innovation and technology
options," says Mr. Wheeler. "Still, the Latin American market remains
varied and diverse, as different countries have individual needs,
economic conditions, infrastructure and regulations."

Despite uncertain economic conditions, the region continues to see
growth in broadband access. Mr. Wheeler believes that growth is fueled
by the continued modernization of infrastructure which, in turn,
increases demand and attracts new players to the Internet ecosystem.

Industry research suggests that the telecom industry is a critical force
for disruption and innovation across multiple technology industries,
including content distribution, big data, cloud-based services and the
Internet of Things (IoT).

"Collaboration between content providers and global carriers in Latin
America, as throughout the world, can result in win-win opportunities
for all parties involved," adds Mr. Wheeler. "Leading wholesale
providers such as NTT Com have the scale and resources to offer content
providers and other Internet-centric businesses the capacity, expertise
and global footprint their customers demand."

With an extensive IP backbone that's ranked as one of the world's
largest and most reliable, NTT Com is uniquely positioned to address the
market needs and challenges in the region. Even before establishing a
Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Sao Paulo in 2011
, the company has been
actively working with regional Latin American providers of Internet
services (ISPs), content (ICPs) and Internet-centric businesses offering
best-in-class connectivity to international markets through its leading
Tier-1 Global
IP Network
