Telia Carrier has added a new point-of-presence (PoP) to its network, providing “agile” connectivity services for a “booming” economic sector in Berlin, Germany. The new colocation data center where the PoP is located, Carrier-Colo, owned by I/P/B/, would be one of the most connected facilities in the region.
Located between Frankfurt, Germany and Warsaw, Poland, the new PoP builds upon Telia Carrier’s recently added, “low latency,” DWDM route, the Frankfurt – Warsaw Express, to meet increased demand in the German capital.
“Prior to this new PoP, connectivity from Berlin to other business centers in the region consisted of longer routes with higher latency,” said Christoph Lannert, Regional Sales Director, Telia Carrier. “This PoP is a microcosm of the technological growth that has put Berlin on the map as a city where high speed, high quality IP services are readily available for carriers, content providers, cloud providers and mobile operators. The Frankfurt-Warsaw Express is a vital artery of connectivity throughout the region, and Telia Carrier is in prime position to connect customers with low latency services via our global fiber backbone.”
This new data center location, Carrier-Colo operated by I/P/B/, provides colocation, connectivity and other IP services to international, national and regional start-ups, carriers, cloud and content providers. Working with I/P/B, a local Internet Service Provider (ISP), Telia Carrier can service a variety of start-ups, as well as established and international businesses needing a foothold in Berlin. The I/P/B/ facility would feature one of the highest numbers of networks and fiber connectivity in the region. The global wholesale carrier has already brought several customers online, and is optimistic it can add more by leveraging its relationship with I/P/B/.
“We are very pleased to have Telia Carrier, one of the world’s leading network providers, and their services featured in our facility in Berlin,” said Steffen David, Managing Director of I/P/B/. “For our customers, this means that they can receive worldwide connectivity with nearly unlimited bandwidth and a highly reliable network backbone that has extremely low latency. Berlin is quickly growing as a business destination, so we require partners who are extremely responsive and provide the stability needed to reliably deliver services to customers throughout the region. Telia Carrier has proven to be that partner and we look forward to the sustained growth that their presence helps bring to I/P/B/ and customers in the region as a whole.”
