GTT Communications has been chosen by Telnyx to deploy IP transit and Ethernet services, boosting network connectivity with Telnyx’s points of presences (PoPs) worldwide.

The initial PoPs selected by Telnyx for deployment include: Chicago, San Jose and Ashburn, Virginia, with expansion across Europe, followed by Asia.

“Our customers are working internationally more than ever before, and they are looking for a partner who can support them seamlessly,” said David Casem, CEO and cofounder of Telnyx.

“We knew GTT could deliver connectivity with the reliability, performance and uptime necessary for us to realise the same mission-critical, real-time communications services we’ve offered in North America on a global scale.”

GTT’s IP transit service is delivered on its tier-1 IP network, which spans over 250 PoPs around the world and is built on carrier-class routing and optical infrastructure.

Rick Calder, president and CEO of GTT, added: “We are pleased that Telnyx has chosen GTT for its network connectivity needs. As one of the top five IP networks in the world, GTT is able to provide Telnyx with expansive reach and seamless scalability for guaranteed high-quality delivery of latency-sensitive applications, such as voice. We look forward to continuing to build upon our relationship with Telnyx on a global basis.”
