RETN, the international network service provider, has announced the launch of two new points of presence (PoPs) in Marseille and Madrid.

The new deployments are located in Interxion’s data centre campuses and are interconnected and directly linked to Paris and Milan.

Commenting on the news, Andrey Gazizov, RETN’s CTO in Europe, said: “The recently completed Frankfurt-Hamburg link as well as this new Madrid-Marseille connection are both aiming to expand RETN’s network coverage on the continent and continue our strategic network development to become the European Network of Choice. The new IP-route is running on Juniper equipment and enables us to deliver IP-transit and MPLS/VPN services to a wide range of international customers. Due to our long-lasting cooperation with Interxion, one of the leading data centres in Europe, we can serve the bandwidth-hungry communities of interest present in their facilities, providing seamless and secure direct access to our infrastructure and services”.

The company have said that the launch of new PoPs in Southern Europe will open up a gateway to multiple European destinations across RETN’s network and creates broader opportunities for connectivity into Asia, Middle East and Africa

“RETN’s network is already present and in high demand at seven Interxion campuses in Europe. The addition of RETN’s PoPs in Marseille and Madrid will mean our community of customers in those cities will now benefit from RETN’s international network, and in particular their extensive reach into Eastern Europe and Russia,” added Mike Hollands, director of market development & strategy at Interxion.
