Telia Carrier establishes 2 New PoPs

Telia Carrier has established two new points of presence (PoP) in St. Petersburg, Russia to meet customer demand, and add more depth and diversity to the company´s network in a region experiencing major traffic growth, the company said.

Telia Carrier continues to add granularity to its network with the two new PoPs, ensuring that customer needs are met in a high traffic region and expanding the reach of its top-two ranked global IP backbone, AS1299.

The new PoPs add to Telia Carrier´s historical commitment to the region and follow the company´s recent announcement of a new route from Stockholm to St. Petersburg via Tallinn.

Following the build-out, the global wholesale carrier will offer IP transit, Ethernet and wavelength services from two new data center facilities in St. Petersburg – Miran and Selectel.

As a result, content providers and operators, primarily within Russia and the Baltic states, can now choose from Telia Carrier´s compelling portfolio of 100G+ services at these sites.
