Telia Carrier tech supports business growth in Phoenix region

Telia Carrier has announced that it has expanded its network in Phoenix, establishing a new point of presence (PoP) within the newly built EdgeConneX facility, the company said.

Phoenix represents the first wave of deployments where Telia Carrier and EdgeConneX will connect the wholesale provider´s fiber network to multiple facilities across EdgeConneX´s portfolio of 30 EDCs in 28 global markets. Telia Carrier has also enhanced its metro fiber network in the region, adding new diversified route options to adjacent cities, including Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert and Mesa, Arizona.

Telia Carrier´s expansion in Phoenix now gives hyper-scale cloud networks and carriers in the region the ability to connect in-market so they are not forced to backhaul traffic to other regions, avoiding unnecessary latency. Telia Carrier´s investments in the region are a part of an overall expansion of Telia Carrier´s 100-Gbps fiber-optic network in North America to meet the demand for 100G services at the edge.

Telia Carrier owns and operates one of the world´s most extensive fiber backbones. Discover more at
