Docomo enters Teleport business

Docomo Pacific announced Monday it is making a major investment in connectivity enhancements by entering the satellite Teleport business.

Through a new partnership with Hawaii Pacific Teleport (HPT), Docomo Pacific 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 Asia Pacific regions.

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 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
