A field trial of Elastic Service Infrastructure (ESI) will be launched with NTT Communications and other NTT Group organizations in April 2015.  NTT i³ promoted Dr. Masahisa Kawashima to Senior Vice President, and has tasked him with rolling out the innovative solution. Dr. Kawashima has worked on many initiatives to update NTT’s business with new technology trends in his 20 years with NTT, and he will play an important role in launching the new ESI solution. ESI addresses the challenges businesses face due to rapid cloud adoption such as increasing security threats, the proliferation of network appliances and increasing Internet access traffic overloading wide area networks and data center links. NTT i³’s ESI reduces traffic by offloading cloud and Internet traffic at any nearby carrier data center. The solution also cuts the time it takes for branch on-boarding from months to under 10 minutes.  ESI leverages SDN and NFV technology to create an open, extensible, multi-sided platform that makes it easy to partner with any virtual appliance vendor. Building on our virtualization expertise with future innovations, that’s how we put communications at the core of IT. That’s what you can expect from a global ICT partner.
