Megaport and JPNAP Partner to Deliver One-stop Connection in Japan

Tokyo, August 17 2020: Megaport, a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, and JPNAP, Japan’s leading Internet Exchange (IX) which is operated by INTERNET MULTIFEED CO., began to deliver integrated network service provided via the interconnection between Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN) and JPNAP.

It enables for Megaport’s worldwide customers to get directly connected to JPNAP in Japan easily with Megaport’s on-demand SDN, and for JPNAP’s customers to connect various foreign IXPs and cloud providers on JPNAP network without additional network infrastructure.

“We are delighted to support JPNAP’s mission to provide a better and more flexible exchange of traffic to their existing and growing customer base in Tokyo and Osaka,” said Gavin Tweedie, Global Interconnection Director at Megaport. “The partnership with JPNAP allows its customers to utilise the Megaport network to reach global destinations outside of JPNAP’s existing network footprint, while Megaport customers now have the ability to connect to JPNAP’s internet exchange from any Megaport enabled locations across the globe.”

“We are glad that Megaport chose JPNAP as the first IXP partner in Japan,” comments Katsuyasu Toyama, Representative Director, COO of INTERNET MULTIFEED CO. “Megaport can increase our business opportunity dramatically to reach customers who have difficulty to expand their own network to Japan by themselves. Moreover, Megaport’s highly automated network operation system will induce our own innovative development of network operation. We also feel excited to bring about 200 JPNAP customers to Megaport’s interconnection ecosystem, and it should be a Win-Win partnership for both parties.”
