Telia Carrier has announced that it has installed its first Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Belgrade, Serbia, the company said.
The new PoP gives customers in the region the opportunity to connect directly to the Telia Carrier backbone, one of the largest and best connected in the world.
The PoP will also serve as a connectivity hub for surrounding countries, improving the availability of high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, Ethernet and IPX services. It will also provide a transport interconnection point for international customers requiring a dedicated connection into Serbia.
The network expansion also eliminates the need for expensive backhaul to out-of-country locations. Customers that had previously needed to access the Telia Carrier backbone via Frankfurt, Vienna or Budapest, will now see higher levels of performance and bandwidth, combined with lower latency. In particular, this will provide a boost to local 4G/5G mobile data service delivery.
