TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) announced the latest expansion of its 100G-enabled network with new Point–of-Presence (PoP) in Equinix’s LD5 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Slough. Some 30km west of London, Slough is in the heart of the high-tech ‘M4’ corridor region home to content and other service providers who need high-quality global reach to execute their business-critical activities.
With over 200 PoPs globally our own-fiber based IP network is among the largest ones in the world, now directly connecting over 345 million end-users.
Tim Brady, Sales Director, Western Europe, TSIC, says, “We are delighted to open a new PoP in Equinix LD5 data center in Slough. It’s the 28th Equinix site through which we connect customers and shows our commitment to the UK market where we are already a top three wholesale provider of IP services. In addition to offering Equinix’s customers in LD5 our full range of services, Slough is a strategic location, enhancing as it does international fiber diversity. With direct fiber links to Paris as well as to our London metro network, this is our fourth diverse fibre connection to Continental Europe. It ensures business continuity if there were ever a catastrophic event in London Docklands.”
Russell Poole, Managing Director, Equinix UK, adds, “TSIC has established itself as an innovative player within the wholesale telecommunications business across the Americas and beyond. For that reason we are extremely proud to be adding this premium provider to our Slough LD5 data center.”
