“On top of that, we’ve launched On Demand Services in Japan. We continue to provide connectivity infrastructure that the market demands with the speed, security, and reliability today’s enterprises need.”
Continuing the company’s extensive investment and expansion efforts in Asia, the launch coincides with the debut of Colt's 50th metro area network (MAN) in Nagoya, comprising of both the latest in optical and Ethernet-based architecture, and providing availability to the city’s key commercial districts.
Including Nagoya, the Colt IQ Network now boasts on-net routes with true end-to-end connectivity across 28 countries and over 200 cities across the world, including Tokyo, Sydney, Busan, Chicago, New York, London, Frankfurt, Paris, and others.
