China Telecom expands network coverage through Telecity

16 September 2014 | Kavit Majithia


China Telecom has expanded its network coverage in Europe through a new PoP in Telecity’s AMS 5 data centre in Amsterdam.

The Chinese operator said it will use extensive connectivity options in Amsterdam, including the Amsterdam internet exchange AMS-IX, in addition to access to Telecity’s international customer base to extend its services into Europe.

It already has capabilities in Europe through Telecity’s facilities in London, Stockholm and Milan, with the expansion in Amsterdam expected to meet extended connectivity demands in Europe.

Increasing demand is being driven by an uptake in networking services by enterprise clients, and China Telecom will enable Telecity’s customers to enjoy the widest connectivity and peering options from the facility.

“With our newly added PoP in Amsterdam being a hub of intercontinental links, this strategic collaboration with Telecity will play a pivotal role in offering our Euro-Asia network solutions and hosting services,” Charlie Cao, managing director at China Telecom Europe.

“This will significantly enhance our data transmission and delivery capabilities. We have always been impressed with Telecity’s connectivity options and their very personal approach to doing business.”
