Telia Carrier Opens Terabit Scale PoP

Telia Carrier has announced that it has deployed a new network Point-of-Presence (PoP) delivering multi-terabit capacity at the NJFX Cable Landing Station (CLS) colocation campus, the company said.

The new network infrastructure provides resilient network options for customers wanting diverse connectivity throughout North America. In addition, Telia Carrier´s extensive network in Europe enables seamless reach and unique diversity to connect from the cable landing point to extended destinations across Europe.

Telia Carrier´s new PoP in the NJFX facility provides high capacity, flexibility, and access to multiple reliable, diverse routes. By leveraging the Havfrue/AEC2 subsea cable system located at NJFX, Telia Carrier customers can now reach Denmark directly and transit the Nordics, Baltics, and can access four unique fiber routes going into Russia. Organizations located at NJFX can now access the Seabras cable system with direct routes into South America, ideal for LATAM customers looking for network diversity, terrestrial extensions, and IP connectivity.

Financial organizations located at NJFX can leverage Telia Carrier´s connectivity linking subsea cables to financial data centers throughout New Jersey and New York. This offers the ability to extend capacity from the NJFX CLS campus and access unique routes bypassing Manhattan and Northern New Jersey, along with connecting to new subsea cables coming online for increased network transparency and resiliency.

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 more than 300 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
