DETROIT, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) continues to expand its award-winning, Tier 1 Internet backbone network in the United States by providing high performance 100Gbps services to 365 Data Centers' Detroit facility and its customers. Driven by strong network traffic growth and increasing demand for web, OTT video and cloud content, the two companies continue to build faster networks in previously underserved, but developing major U.S. cities.
365 Data Centers' customers in Detroit, including businesses, carriers, cable operators, mobile data operators and content, cloud and managed service providers, will benefit from TSIC's IP Transit, Ethernet and portfolio of IPX services. TSIC currently provides 100Gbps IP Transit services to customers in the region and worked with 365 Data Centers last year to provide 100Gbps services in six other cities including Buffalo, N.Y.; Tampa, Fla.; Nashville, Tenn.; St Louis, Mo.; Cleveland, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Ind.
"By partnering with 365 Data Centers, we are able to increase TSIC's footprint in the Midwest region and enable faster delivery of data and video to local mobile operators, Internet service providers and education networks," said Art Kazmierczak, Director of Business Development, Americas at TeliaSonera International Carrier Inc. "Detroit continues to grow and diversify in the new digital economy as the Internet of Things meshes with automotive technology and with the concentration of talent, provides the perfect location to service customers throughout the region."
TSIC was the first carrier with a 100G enabled backbone in both Europe and North America in addition to owning and operating a top-two ranked Global IP backbone fiber optic backbone. The company enables worldwide connectivity by connecting more than 200 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East including 62 PoPs in North America alone.
"TSIC is a key partner that shares our vision of enabling the next generation of communications in tier 2 cities," said Keao Caindec, Chief Commercial Officer, 365 Data Centers. "Together, we are helping content providers, cloud providers, enterprises and carriers to connect at the edge to help them scale with access to faster and bigger networks."
