Telstra this week announced the expansion of its business in Europe with the Telstra Programmable Network soon to be available via new points of presence (PoPs) in Frankfurt and Paris in addition to a new office in Paris that will serve as Telstra’s hub for Continental Europe.

The new PoPs will offer flexible and dynamic access to the Telstra Programmable Network, a leading digital platform for enterprise network services built on Software-Defined Networking.

The Telstra Programmable Network provides near-real time on-demand connectivity to clouds, data centres and a partner ecosystem through one portal, transforming the traditional networking experience. Businesses with operations in France and Germany will be able to optimise their IT through the automated provisioning of new applications and services, real-time data insights on network usage and consumption-based pricing without the need for significant infrastructure upgrades.

This latest expansion follows Telstra’s acquisition of Company85, which provides data centre, workspace, cloud, security and network services, in June last year.

The Operator also set to boost its Middle East business by announcing the expansion of its Programmable Network with a new PoP in Dubai.

Tom Homer, Managing Director for EMEA, Telstra
The expansion is part of Telstra’s strategy to grow its position across the continent and help businesses expand, particularly into the Asia Pacific region. Our new office in the La Défense area of Paris will be a hub for our European business. This hub will be crucial for our expansion across the continent.

Our exclusive survey in the Middle East found that video buffering is a major frustration, causing subscribers to abandon a video within just six seconds — and potentially driving them into the arms of competing mobile operators.
