18 Dec Telia Carrier Adds a Point of Presence in Europe to Support Increasing Demand for Connectivity and Cloud Services
Telia Carrier, a leading Tier 1 Global Internet backbone provider, has added a third Point of Presence (PoP) in Switzerland. Collocated at Colozurich data center, the PoP will help Teleia Carrier meet the growing demand for connectivity and cloud services in Europe.
The addition of the PoP in Europe will facilitate access to the expansive Telia Carrier global backbone network. Through the Telia Carrier network, enterprises, lower tier network providers, ISPs and institutions will access a wide range of connectivity solutions and cloud services. Like anywhere else in the world, the growth in demand for cloud services in Europe continues unabated. The announcement by Telia Carrier coincides with the launch of Amazon Web Service (AWS) in Stockholm, Sweden, underscoring the growing demand for cloud services in Europe.
One key driver for cloud services in Europe is the release of the GDPR Act of 2016/679. GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation requires the privacy protection of all Europeans. As a result, banking institutions, insurance firms and other providers handling highly sensitive data of European citizens are expected to migrate to EU located cloud – prompting network and data center providers to boost their presence in Europe.
Clients of Telia Carrier can expect access to a wide range of connectivity solutions, a huge repository of online services around the world, high network reliability, guaranteed speed and low latency. Telia Carrier owns an expansive global network of 65,000 route kilometers of optical fiber with 265 PoPs in 110 countries. Moreover, Telier Carrier peers with all other tier 1 network providers forming the entire global Internet backbone. Thus, by connecting to the Telia Carrier network, one will be connected to a giant network connecting the world’s leading cloud providers through a minimum number of hops.
