Telia Carrier has extended its partnership with Nordic colocation data center company, DigiPlex, following the success of a previous deployment at one of DigiPlex data centers in Norway, Ulven in Oslo. Under the new agreement, Telia Carrier will deploy a new 100G Point-of-Presence (PoP) in DigiPlex’s carrier-neutral data center north of Stockholm, Sweden.
The two PoPs would give DigiPlex customers in Sweden and Norway direct access to the Telia Carrier Backbone, one of the largest and most well connected in the world and 100G-enabled in both Europe and North America. The new PoP would allow DigiPlex customers to gain all the “green benefits” of using a data center in a cool climate while retaining the ability to get “low latency” content to end users, wherever they are in the world.
“Giving our customers access to the Telia Carrier 100G Backbone in our Nordic data centers will ensure they will always have the low latency bandwidth needed for periods of high demand,” said Gisle M. Eckhoff, CEO of DigiPlex. ”The data center is increasingly becoming an interconnected business ecosystem for critical digital operations. We are delighted that DigiPlex customers now may take advantage of the increased level of connectivity that Telia Carrier brings.”
230 Data Center PoPs
Telia Carrier enables worldwide connectivity by connecting more than 230 PoPs across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East including over 80 PoPs in North America alone.
“DigiPlex has been able to give its customers the best of both worlds: high-speed connectivity giving a great experience for end users across the globe, whilst using data centres that are in the best locations for delivering greener facilities,” said Henrik Almroth, Sales Director of Telia Carrier. “The topology, speed and bandwidth of the Telia Carrier IP Backbone means that DigiPlex can confidently provide scalable internet connectivity services to customers, as well as take advantage of other IP transport and wavelength services in the future.”
