Telia Carrier has extended its network in APAC with a new PoP (Point-of-Presence) in Tokyo, Japan. 

The new PoP gives customers the opportunity to connect directly to the Telia Carrier global backbone. This will improve the availability of high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, Ethernet and IPX services for consumers and enterprises in Japan and beyond, says Telia Carrier.

Recently, there has been a significant increase in the amount of IP traffic moving through APAC, a region that loves its online gaming, rich Internet and video content. With almost 104 million Internet users recorded in 2017, Japan is the home of many innovative businesses that develop and utilise technology to improve efficiency and communicate with partners across the world, says Telia Carrier.

Wee Kwan Ee, Head of Sales APAC, Telia Carrier
Our PoP in Japan will further open up the local market and enhance connectivity across the APAC region as a whole. It will also provide customers with the option of a low latency route towards Europe on our leading global IP backbone.

Staffan Gojeryd, CEO, Telia Carrier
Japan is a country which consumes and creates vast amounts of internet content and with many of its businesses at the cutting edge of technology, there is a compelling need for reliable and scalable connectivity to connect a global network of customers and partners.
