Telia Carrier prepares for multi-terabit subsea cable systems in Marseilles

Telia Carrier has established a new point of presence (PoP) within Jaguar Network´s Marseilles data center, the company said.

This is the second PoP Telia Carrier has established in Marseilles to provide carriers, content and cloud providers with diverse connectivity choices and added network redundancy. The new PoP improves the resiliency of Telia Carrier´s existing wholesale IP transit, wavelength and Ethernet services provided from both locations.

The new PoP will provide customers with added access to two new subsea cable systems currently being built out with landings in Marseilles. The SEA-ME-WE 5 (Southeast Asia, Middle East, West Europe), a 24TB system, and the AAE-1 (Asia, Africa, Europe), a 40TB system, will increase the need for Telia Carrier´s backbone to direct traffic from Asia to European networking hubs, including London, Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt.

Telia Carrier offers a 100G-enabled backbone in both Europe and North America, in addition to owning and operating a global IP backbone. The company enables worldwide connectivity by connecting more than 200 points of presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East including 65 PoPs in North America.
