Overall Telia Carrier’s Cloud Connect solution simplifies the transition to cloud-based workflows with various, geographically diverse connections to the world’s largest cloud providers, including Microsoft, Amazon, Google and IBM/ Customers in TierPoint’s facilities will also benefit from access to Telia Carrier’s MEF 2.0 certified data centre-to-data centre Ethernet service, which connects to more than 150 points-of-presence (PoPs) worldwide.
