123Net, Michigan’s premier data center services provider and host of the Detroit Internet Exchange (DET-IX), has tapped Telia Carrier’s 100G-enabled, number one ranked global IP backbone to provide scalable capacity and connectivity to the Michigan market.

123Net’s expansive fiber footprint throughout Michigan includes up to 4,000 route miles of fiber in over 106 communities. Telia Carrier’s new POP is the perfect place to connect the geographic reach and reliable, high-speed broadband capacity of both networks. “We’re looking forward to growing this partnership with Telia Carrier,” said 

Art Kazmierczak, Director of Network & Business Development, Telia Carrier
These applications utilize the dynamic on-demand provisioning, and low latency performance of Telia Carrier’s global network, enabling access to cloud capabilities at the network edge and empowering developing technologies like autonomous vehicles and smart cities in the supporting infrastructure.

Bob Evenson, Carrier Relations Manager, 123Net
We continue to see a high demand from regional, national, and international carriers to establish a point of presence at our Tier 3 facility. Being the largest carrier-neutral facility in the state makes it easy for not only carriers, like Telia Carrier, but also content providers who want to connect here and peer closer to end users. We hope to continue to provide solid options to carriers interested in the Michigan market.
