The Osaka 6, which will be located in a building that NTT West Corporation is constructing in downtown Osaka, will launch with 460m2 of server space and eventually expand to 1,370m2 and 400 racks. The Osaka 7, which will be situated in a dedicated datacenter building in Ibaraki, Osaka Prefecture, will boast initial server space of 3,800m2 and eventually grow to 9,500m2 and 4,200 racks.

“In response to the strong demand for massive data from cloud-service providers and other hyper-scale customers in the greater Osaka area, despite having launched our Osaka 5 Data Center in 2016 we have decided to build two new datacenters to further satisfy customers’ needs,” said Kenichiro Iida, Senior Vice President, Head of Cloud Services. “Data demands among hyper-scale companies are already robust, but we foresee even more data needs for hybrid cloud services that combine colocation and multi-clouds.”

Features of Osaka 6 and 7

• Convenient locations to serve diverse customers
Osaka 6 in downtown Osaka will be conveniently accessible from multiple stations, with the nearest subway station just a two-minute walk away. Osaka 7 in Ibaraki will be near downtown Osaka but offer reduced risk of disasters such as floods and earthquakes. Both datacenters will connect directly to Osaka’s Dojima area, a major interconnection point for ISPs and datacenter operators. Services will be available to an extensive range of customers, including major cloud service providers and other hyper-scale operators and enterprises.

• Ideal network environment
Both datacenters will fully comply with strict equipment and operation standards that have been globally unified under NTT Com’s Nexcenter™ family of datacenters. In addition to redundant electric power, air-conditioning, connections and security, users will benefit from NTT Com’s high-capacity, high-quality and high-reliability network infrastructure. IX, ISP and multi-cloud connectivity will be enhanced by direct connections to other NTT Com datacenters in Osaka via 10 Gbps Nexcenter Connect™ Metro.

• High disaster tolerance
Both datacenters will be equipped with seismic isolation structure to minimize the impact on buildings and customer equipment if another Nankai megathrust earthquake were to occur. Electric power, network equipment, server rooms and other key facilities will be located on the second floor or higher of Osaka 6. to enable interrupted operation even if the first floor were to be flooded. Reliable electric power supply will be assured through the use of multiple substations and routes. Communication cables will enter the buildings through large earthquake-resistant tunnels to prevent damage from earthquakes or road excavation work. Osaka 7 will be located in an area where flooding is uncommon, and electric power will be secured even in case of disaster by connecting directly to the adjacent substation.

• Flexible equipment compliance
Osaka 7 will be a campus-style datacenter that offers fast, reduced-cost customization to meet specific customer needs. Server rooms will adopt highly efficient cooling wall-type air-conditioning and will be able to accommodate ultra-high-heat servers that consume 20kW or more of power, such as GPU servers. The facility is expected to deploy advanced technologies such as a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) system for improved reliability and some 20% lower power loss through reduced power consumption.

Background

Japan’s colocation market that was worth around 540 billion JPY in 2018 and datacenter business has been growing steadily at around 7% per annum. Cloud-service providers and other hyper-scale companies, as well as enterprise customers, continue to generate massive demand. In addition, the use of datacenters for hybrid clouds that combine colocation and multi-clouds is expected to expand.

GSMA Welcomes Germany’s 5G Spectrum Award, but Cautions against Unnecessary Conditions15.11.2018 11:00Tiedote

The GSMA today welcomed the German government’s decision to release the entire 3.4 to 3.8 GHz band (C-Band), essential for the future development of 5G services globally. Making available all of the spectrum in this critical band for 5G, in a timely manner, shows Germany’s commitment to European and global 5G leadership. However, the GSMA warns that some of the currently proposed conditions on the allocation of these vital frequencies may slow Germany’s 5G future. Ultra-fast 5G networks will form the foundation of the world’s digital economy, supporting a wide variety of industry sectors. Imposing unnecessary conditions that limit mobile operators’ ability and potential to deliver 5G creates a risk for all, industries and citizens alike. “The C-Band is the most vital frequency band for 5G. Germany is demonstrating 5G leadership in the timely release of this vital spectrum, but risks undercutting its 5G future with unnecessary obligations,” said Mats Granryd, Director General, GSMA. “Sp

Entersekt Sets Sights on the Nordics15.11.2018 11:00Tiedote

Entersekt, an innovator in mobile-first fintech solutions, today announced its entry into the competitive Nordic market. The identity and payments enablement provider serves banks and other enterprises operating in 45 countries. Entersekt’s interest in Scandinavia derives from its openness to digital banking and payments innovation. Digitization may be transforming business in every corner of the world, but few regions have experienced the wholesale change in consumer payments behaviour that the Nordics have. While governments, central banks, and the banking industry as a whole have pushed a cashless agenda for several years now, many point to Nordic consumers’ enthusiastic adoption of cashless transacting as the true driver behind the boom in digital payments. Consumers in the region have never been hidebound to payments innovation, as smart card penetration rates demonstrated years ago. Payments-ready smartphones are, of course, everywhere and the retail NFC infrastructure is superb.
