phoenixNAP and Telia Carrier expand network capacity in Phoenix
Telia Carrier has upgraded its network presence at the phoenixNAP, Phoenix Metro mega data centre.
Through the upgrade phoenixNAP is able to provide scalable multi-terabit capacity and connectivity which in turn enhances the local availability if high-speed IP transit, cloud connect, Ethernet and IPX services for operators, content providers and enterprises.
“To ensure uninterrupted connectivity for our clients, we’re always evaluating cost-effective options to expand our global footprint and improve our network,” said Ian McClarty (pictured), president of phoenixNAP. “As we were working to boost our network, we knew that Telia Carrier, a long-time partner of phoenixNAP, would enable us to deliver network consistency and performance to meet the demands of our growing, global, and dynamic clients.”
The greater Phoenix region has grown over the last few years to become a major traffic hub for data centre operators in the US thanks to its sustainable power costs, good tax rates and the growing number of companies expanding into region. Telia Carrier’s expanded presence in phoenixNAP directly addresses this growing demand for high-capacity services.
“Our continued partnership with phoenixNAP and investment in the Phoenix market is a testament to our customer-driven approach adding additional diversity and capacity as we expand our global IP backbone,” added Stephen Hartman, head of sales, Americas at Telia Carrier. “The demand for IP and other big bandwidth services throughout Phoenix is growing at an incredible rate as more businesses and data centre operators enter the market and leverage hybrid cloud ecosystems. We deliver a global alternative carrier solution and are continually expanding our network to ensure we have the capacity and reach to meet the dynamic demands of phoenixNAP and their end clients for flexible traffic-intensive workflows at scale.”
In May of 2019, phoenixNAP announced that it was expanding its carrier connectivity with Colt to diversify its options for customers.
