We want to respond to growing
traffic demand in Western Japan
With the increase in Internet traffic driven by demand for video streaming services during the COVID-19 pandemic, Western Japan has also seen a growth in traffic that is exceeding the capacity of our Tokyo base. With a view to expanding our facilities in Osaka, we are looking for a DC with a large number of IXes, ISPs, and so on, where we can access a variety of interconnections. We also need a place that offers English language support, from the contracting stage through to operation, where staff are on hand to assist with connecting cables between racks and other tasks.
