Telia Carrier announced that it has further expanded access to its Global IP Backbone with an additional PoP (Point-of-Presence) in Zurich, Switzerland.

This brings the number of PoPs available in Switzerland to three, in direct response to increased demand for access to Telia Carrier’s new high capacity fibre route stretching from Zurich to Frankfurt via Basel.

The colozü data center is the most energy-efficient carrier neutral facility in Zurich and is designed in accordance with Tier IV data centre principles, claims Telia Carrier. The new PoP gives colozü customers direct access to the Telia Global IP backbone and full suite of IP services, including Cloud Connect which secures a direct on-ramp to the leading global cloud service providers.

The combination of numerous regional PoPs and efficient routing supports a huge increase in regional traffic, as enterprises and consumers demand access to high quality Internet services, such as OTT (Over-The-Top) content, cloud connectivity, web-hosting and more. Customers in industries as diverse as financial services, healthcare and media are making extensive use of IP technology, often needing to reach end users, services and resources on the other side of the globe with low latency, high speed and consistent reliability.

Reto Burkhaler,
Having direct access to the Telia Global IP backbone, means that regardless of the demands of their industry, they can be sure of giving their customers and business partners the best possible experience, against a backdrop of constantly escalating IP traffic volumes.

Christoph Lannert, Regional Sales Director, Telia Carrier
The demand for IP services throughout Europe is growing at an incredible rate. We are continually expanding our network to ensure we have the capacity and reach to meet customer demand for traffic intensive workflows, from cloud computing to media streaming.
