"Consumers today demand the highest quality online experiences at any time, on any device, and from anywhere," said Art Kazmierczak, director of network and business development, Americas, at Telia Carrier, Inc. "Limelight choosing Telia Carrier to deliver services to meet these demands reflects our ability to turn up services quickly and provide a resilient, global backbone at the highest speeds available. We're committed to continually expanding, updating and optimizing our network to keep pace with the increasing demand for digital content."
Telia Carrier's global fiber backbone was built organically, without acquisitions, and is the first to be 100G-enabled in both Europe and North America. It is also the first network to successfully transmit 1 Tb/s on its US network. According to Dyn Research's global backbone rankings, AS1299, Telia Carrier's global IP backbone is currently ranked top-two. Telia Carrier's rapid growth and ascension through the rankings was recently highlighted in Dyn's 'Baker's Dozen, 2015 edition' report. The company enables worldwide connectivity by connecting more than 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East including over 70 PoPs in North America alone.
