phoenixNAP, Telia Carrier to Increase Network Capacity, Support Growth in Phoenix Market

phoenixNAP, a global IT services provider offering security-focused cloud infrastructure, dedicated servers, colocation, and specialized Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) technology solutions, has announced that Telia Carrier has upgraded its network presence in its Phoenix Metro mega data center, the company said.

The latest upgrade allows phoenixNAP to provide scalable multi-terabit capacity and connectivity, enhancing the local availability of high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, Ethernet, and IPX services for operators, content providers, and enterprises alike.

Over the past few years, the Greater Phoenix region has become a major traffic hub for data-center operators in the US due to its sustainable power costs, attractive tax rates, and the growing number of companies expanding into the region. Telia Carrier´s expanded presence in phoenixNAP addresses the growing demand for high-capacity services, bolstering phoenixNAP as a provider of the market based on capacity deployed for hybrid colocation and hyperscale customers.

For more than two decades, Telia Carrier´s global fiber backbone has grown organically, without acquisitions. It was the first network to successfully transmit 1 Tb/s in super channels on its US network and recently announced the first real-time transmission of 600Gb/s wavelengths in a live production network. According to Dyn Research´s global backbone rankings, Telia Carrier´s global IP backbone, AS1299, is currently ranked number one. The company enables worldwide connectivity by connecting 300 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
