Telia Carrier expands Swiss network with new PoP in colozüri.ch Zurich
Telia Carrier has further expanded access to its global IP backbone with an additional point of presence (PoP) in Zurich, Switzerland.
The colozüri.ch data centre is one of the most energy-efficient carrier-neutral facilities in Zurich and is designed in accordance with Tier IV data centre principles. The new PoP gives colozüri.ch customers direct access to Telia Carrier’s 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.
“Our customers demand the highest levels of performance and resilience from their IP services,” said Reto Burkhalter from colozüri.ch.
“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.”
The new PoP represents Telia Carrier’s third in Switzerland and is 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 company’s global network footprint connects more than 265 PoPs with 65,000km of fibre across Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.

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.
