TOKYO, 22 Maret /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ —

NTT Communications (NTT Com) mengumumkan pada tanggal 22 Maret bahwa
pihaknya terus memulihkan layanan komunikasi, meskipun beberapa masih tetap
terganggu setelah gempa kuat yang melanda wilayah Tohoku Jepang pada hari
Jum’at, 11 Maret.

Sekitar 12.500 saluran untuk layanan IP-VPN dan e-VLAN telah dipulihkan
dari ke-15.000 saluran yang untuk sementara tidak dapat digunakan di Tohoku
selama gangguan puncak.

Dampak besar atas layanan komunikasi internasional dihindari dengan
menggunakan rute lain untuk memotong kabel bawah laut yang rusak yang
menghubungkan Jepang dengan seluruh Asia dan Amerika Serikat. Kapal-kapal
sekarang tengah memperbaiki kabel yang rusak, yang rencananya akan kembali
difungsikan NTT Com antara bulan April dan awal Mei.

Pembangkit listrik darurat telah dipasang di beberapa fasilitas komunikasi
dan pusat data untuk mencegah gangguan layanan komunikasi terkait karena
pemadaman bergilir yang tengah dilaksanakan oleh Tokyo Electric Power dan
Tohoku Electric Power.

Layanan juga terus dipulihkan oleh anak-anak perusahaan lain Grup NTT yang
beroperasi di wilayah Tohoku, termasuk jasa akses telepon tetap dan serat optik
NTT East serta jasa telepon selular NTT DOCOMO. Grup NTT telah memasang telepon
umum gratis dan kendaraan mobile base-station di pusat-pusat evakuasi dan
lokasi strategis lainnya, serta menawarkan sistem berbasis telepon dan Internet
untuk membantu orang memastikan keselamatan dan keberadaan orang lain.

Akira Arima, Presiden dan CEO NTT Com, mengatakan “Di saat penderitaan
hebat ini, Grup NTT tengah mengupayakan semua langkah yang ada guna memulihkan
layanan komunikasi dan fasilitas yang terganggu dengan tujuan memberikan
dukungan maksimal bagi upaya bantuan dan pemulihan korban bencana.”

Earthquake Update: NTT Com Services Gradually Restored

TOKYO, Mar. 22 /Kyodo JBN-AsiaNet/ —

     NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced on March 22 that it is steadily restoring communications services, although some still remain disrupted following the powerful earthquake that hit the Tohoku region of Japan on Friday, March 11.

     Some 12,500 lines for IP-VPN and e-VLAN services have been recovered out of the 15,000 that were rendered temporally unavailable in Tohoku during peak disruption.

     A major impact on international communication services was avoided by successfully using other routes to bypass damaged submarine cables connecting Japan with the rest of Asia and the United States. Ships are now at sea working on the damaged cables, which NTT Com plans to return to service sometime between April and early May.

     Emergency power generators have been installed in communication facilities and data centers to prevent disruption of related communication services due to rolling blackouts that are being implemented by Tokyo Electric Power and Tohoku Electric Power.

     Services are also being steadily restored by other members of the NTT Group operating in the Tohoku region, including NTT East’s fixed telephone and optical-fiber access services and NTT DOCOMO’s mobile services. The NTT Group has set up free public phones and mobile base-station vehicles at evacuation centers and other strategic locations, and is offering phone- and Internet-based systems to help people confirm the safety and whereabouts of others.

     Akira Arima, NTT Com President and CEO, said “In this time of great suffering, the NTT Group is pursuing all available measures to restore disrupted communications services and facilities with the aiming of providing maximum support for disaster relief and recovery efforts.”
