Arelion has announced the addition of a new network PoP (Point-of-Presence) at the EMC Home of Data colocation data center in Munich, Germany. This will give colocation clients in the EMC Home of Data data center increased direct access to the Arelion AS1299 backbone network. The new network PoP will offer content providers and businesses in the Munich metro area high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, and Internet Exchange (IX) Connect services.
As Germany’s third-largest city and the largest in the south, Munich has grown to become a center for high-tech businesses including those in the car, aerospace, biotech, and Internet sectors. Due to this and its 1.5 million inhabitants, Munich has become a vital Internet connectivity transit point.
Arelion, formerly known as Telia Carrier, has been present in Munich since 1999, and its four cable routes serve as a gateway between Frankfurt, southern Germany, Vienna, and the Balkans.
High Bandwidth, Reliability, Low Latency
“Today’s leading businesses are making increased use of cloud services from companies such as Amazon Web Services, Google and Microsoft,” said Christoph Lannert, Head of EMEA Sales at Arelion.
“High bandwidth, reliability and low latency are critical to their operations. The new network PoP at EMC Home of Data will give companies improved access to the IP services they need and a direct route onto our global fiber backbone, bringing the world even closer.”
“We are delighted to welcome Arelion as our new global Tier 1 carrier at EMC Home of Data,” said Bernhard Huter, CEO at colocation provider EMC Home of Data.
“It provides our campus ecosystem with new enhanced connectivity services that come with high-speed IP Transit and the reliability our customers expect from their Home of Data.”
