Japan's NTT Communications has expanded its North American footprint with the establishment of a new point of presence in Toronto, Canada.

NTT Com will use the new PoP to scale its offerings to ISPs, content providers and cloud, hosting and CDN providers in the Canadian market.

The expansion of its global IP network footprint will also help the operator meet growing demand for IP services from global companies and organizations with a Canadian presence.

Michael Wheeler, executive vice president of the NTT Communications Global IP Network at NTT America, said the company plans to particularly target the nation's financial services, commercial, distribution, media and industrial sectors.

"We are thrilled to extend our footprint into one of North America's fastest growing technology hubs," he said.

"Internet-centric businesses and organizations operating in the area will have direct access to our tier-1 global backbone and the high-performance IP solutions they need for their content, online video, hosting, gaming and other bandwidth-intensive applications."
