Telia Carrier adds new connectivity options that bypass Manhattan
Telia Carrier has announced the expansion of its North American network with the addition of two new diverse and latency-optimised DWDM routes between New Jersey and Northern Virginia.
This includes metro expansions with additional points of presence (PoPs) in the Secaucus area to seamlessly connect New Jersey and the greater New York area.
The build-out addresses growing demand for high-capacity services from the financial services sector as it migrates to New Jersey. Direct access to reliable Internet connectivity and diverse high-speed 100G wavelength services that circumvent Manhattan are a prerequisite for companies looking to take advantage of cost-efficient power and land options in the area.
“Telia Carrier is committed to building a network that exceeds customer expectations, with highly flexible and diverse route options,” said Staffan Göjeryd, CEO, Telia Carrier. “This particular addition ensures fast access between key data centres along the US East Coast and highlights our ongoing commitment to the North American market overall.”
The expanded network also provides the capability to extend to new submarine cable landing stations in Virginia and New Jersey.
The new PoPs in Secaucus are running the latest generation of Infinera coherent ICE4 100G technology and enhance the local availability of high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, Ethernet and IPX services for operators, content providers and enterprises alike. With more than 1,900 customers worldwide, the expansion is a continuation of the carrier’s organic growth story and geographic expansion to better serve existing markets and reach new ones.
