DOCOMO PACIFIC is making a major investment in connectivity enhancements by entering the satellite teleport business, the telecommunications provider announced Monday.
"Through an exciting new partnership with Hawaii Pacific Teleport, DOCOMO PACIFIC is ... expanding its reach and capabilities to connect global customers through satellite teleport services," the announcement stated. "HPT is a Hawaii-based international provider of satellite and fiber-based communications providing connectivity between the U.S. and Asia-Pacific regions."
The partnership, created in 2018, is the first of its kind between DOCOMO and HPT.
"This partnership with HPT allows DOCOMO PACIFIC to improve carrier quality connectivity, enhance colocation and disaster recovery for partnering companies, and offer network redundancy and diversity through satellite bandwidth to islands with limited subsea cables," the company stated.
The 12,000-square-foot Guam Teleport located in Pulantat, Yona, will offer a U.S.-based teleport facility in the Pacific with access to a number of countries with lower latency and multiple backhaul options.
"Over the past year, it's been great to build our relationship and work together with Hawaii Pacific Teleport. As an innovator of new and emerging technology, we're excited to grow our footprint while offering unique communication services throughout the region," said Roderick Boss, president and CEO of DOCOMO PACIFIC. "Our partnership with HPT allows DOCOMO PACIFIC to improve the communication needs of many organizations while helping them connect millions around the world."
