TOKYO, January 19, 2011 - NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) announced on January 19 a new
cloud-optimized network service for enterprises, called Universal One, that
customers will use for comprehensive cloud services linked directly to their
private networks. NTT Com plans to launch Universal One in Japan in the
coming months and will begin accepting applications from April. The service
will launch in global markets sometime in September or thereafter.

As companies look to incorporate cloud services in their growth
strategies to reduce the burden of designing and managing complicated
networks, one of their concerns is how reliably network services can assure
continuous access to the cloud. NTT Com expects Universal One to satisfy this
concern by enabling enterprises to rapidly deploy cloud-based networks on a
reliable, low-cost, scalable basis, with the added assurance of redundant
access lines.

Universal One will offer broad flexibility in terms of location,
operations, layers and even the type of cloud they use. Services will be
available in four different levels of quality and cost, starting as low as
16,800 JPY per month for a layer 3 network in Japan.

Features of Universal One

    - Comprehensive services, which previously had to be segregated according
      to the customer's network layer and type of access line.
    - Four plans offering different levels of quality and cost, from premium
      service for top-level reliability and quality to best-effort service
      for basic-level bandwidth.
    - Easy three-step process for selecting the most appropriate plan,
      bandwidth and options.
    - No need to design or construct network to access cloud services.

      for strengthened network reliability and business continuity.
    - All service plans include a backup access line to assure network

      networks, connection to NTT Com's BizCITY cloud services (some
      available only in Japan) is provided at no extra charge.
    - One-stop management-from Universal One terminal to cloud-helps to lower
      costs significantly compared to complicated conventional networks.
