Interoute opens new Moscow office to deliver network solutions to domestic and international markets
London, UK – 21 September 2010, Interoute, owner operator of Europe’s largest next-generation network, today announced it has extended its presence into Russia in response to increasing demand for next generation connectivity and telecommunication services in the region. The opening of a new office in Russia and the appointment of a Russia and CIS Country Manager, Elena Chernykh, will enable Interoute to meet the demand of both international companies looking for connectivity in the region and carriers looking for a high speed connection between the East and West.
The Russian market has experienced the fastest internet population growth in Europe, with internet users in Moscow more than doubling from 27 per cent to 60 per cent between 2002 and 2009. At the same time, growing consumption in China and the Middle East has pushed internet traffic through Russia as it provides the lowest latency terrestrial route between Asia and Europe. The culmination of the two has resulted in an increasing demand for Interoute’s next generation network services, following its network extension into Moscow in 2009.
“Since we extended our network into Russia we’ve experienced a huge demand for our services from both domestic and international companies looking for next generation services and a flexible pricing policy,” said Elena Chernykh, Russia and CIS Country Manager, Interoute. “We are excited to be at the heart of this fast growing market“.
Interoute’s Moscow PoP is fully integrated into Interoute’s pan-European network, providing businesses and service providers with fast, cost effective access to the rest of Europe and resilient, high quality voice and data services to support their operations.
Elena Chernykh, Country Manager, Russia and CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), supported by Ljubica Denic, Regional Director CEE and Renzo Ravaglia, Executive VP Wholesale will be responsible for the strategic planning for new business as well as the co-ordination of international relations.
Then occasion was marked with an official launch event attended by the leading corporate and wholesale companies in Russia. See here for images.
