TeliaSonera International Carrier and NCC enhance Internet connectivity in Omaha, Nebraska

TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) continues to expand its award-winning, Tier 1 Internet backbone network in the United States with the addition of a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) at Nebraska Colocation Centers’ (NCC) Omaha data center.

In response to strong traffic growth and increasing demand - particularly a growing need for 100G, TSIC continues to expand its network reach into key regional US markets. TSIC is therefore pleased to announce a major network build-out into the state-of-the-art NCC data center.

“Omaha, Nebraska is a major regional traffic hub in the North Central US and as we continue our program of business-driven expansion in the Americas, NCC is the natural choice for a global carrier like ourselves looking for a mission-critical, neutral facility in the area. Apart from the strategic importance of Nebraska as a hub for key US content, there are a number of important operators and research institutions that make this a compelling site for our ongoing program of US growth’ said Art Kazmierczak, Director of Business Development, Americas at TeliaSonera International Carrier Inc.

With the addition of NCC Omaha, TSIC now has 60 PoPs in the US that serve the region with mission-critical, 100G-enabled Internet transit, Wavelength and Ethernet services. As global demand for Internet bandwidth increases, TSIC is able to offer compelling bandwidth- or even network-on-demand solutions that support content and operator networks at just about any point in their business lifecycle.

“We’re excited that TeliaSonera International Carrier has decided to build into our carrier hotel”, said Roger Willey, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for NCC.  “Providing our customers with the ability to connect to Europe and the world from the center point of the United States, gives them more flexibility to facilitate a high performing network. Certainly, TeliaSonera has a solid reputation for quality service and we are pleased to bring them to Nebraska.”
