TAMUNING, Guam—DOCOMO PACIFIC, the leading provider of telecommunications services in Guam and the CNMI, is making a major investment in connectivity enhancements by entering the satellite Teleport business.
Through an exciting new partnership with Hawaii Pacific Teleport, DOCOMO is growing its telecommunications footprint by expanding its reach and capabilities to connect global customers through satellite teleport services. HPT is a Hawaii-based international provider of satellite and fiber-based communications providing connectivity between the U.S. and the Asia Pacific.
The partnership, created in 2018, is the first of its kind between DOCOMO and HPT. This partnership with HPT allows DOCOMO 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 12,000-square-foot Guam Teleport located in Pulantat, Guam 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. Our partnership with HPT allows DOCOMO PACIFIC to improve the communication needs of many organizations while helping them connect millions around the world. We look forward to the many benefits this new venture will bring to our region while allowing us to remain a leader in innovation and telecommunications in Guam and the CNMI,” said DOCOMO president and CEO Roderick Boss.
DOCOMO is a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT DOCOMO. Headquartered in Tamuning Guam, DOCOMO is the largest provider of telecommunications services in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.
DOCOMO PACIFIC provides a full range of carrier services connecting the Marianas (Guam, Saipan, Tinian, and Rota) and beyond, from simple cross connects to comprehensive international connectivity. DOCOMO continues to lead the telecommunications industry in the Marianas as the only MEF 2.0 Carrier Ethernet Certified Company and fosters continual innovation with a DOCOMO 5G Open Lab set to open at its headquarters in Tamuning, Guam in early 2019.
