Arelion (formerly Telia Carrier) has deployed a new network Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. For businesses and content providers throughout the metro region, the new network PoP, which is housed in CETIN’s carrier-neutral data center, will offer high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, and Internet Exchange (IX) Connect services.
It would give clients better access to domestic and international backbone IP services, including those on the Arelion AS1299 network, thanks to the new network PoP. It would also give customers running mission-critical services more resilience options and give them more options to house their IT infrastructures.
Cloud Service Providers
According to data from the Serbian government, the ICT industry, which has 3,354 enterprises as of Q1 2022, contributed 10 percent of the nation’s GDP. By bringing foreign markets and cloud providers closer to Serbia through more routes and improved performance, the new Arelion network PoP would support this growing industry and its clients.
“This new PoP is a key part of our investment in the Arelion network to ensure that enterprises, the ICT sector, and consumers have the best possible online experience, regardless of the service to which they are connecting,” said Patrik Andreasson, Head of Sales Nordic, CEE and Balkans at Arelion. “Cloud services play a key component in the delivery of those web applications and, with this additional PoP in Belgrade, we get customers even closer to those cloud service providers.”
