Telia Carrier, Inc. said internet provider Pilot has chosen to deploy its IP Transit services across the northeastern U.S. to enable regional infrastructure expansion and support backbone traffic. For the past two years, Pilot has used Telia Carrier to deliver services to over 1,250 businesses and 75,000 end users.
Customer demand for digital content from financial institutions, healthcare organizations, and other businesses continues to accelerate high-bandwidth, high-capacity, and high-performance connectivity needs, says Telia Carrier. Pilot's high-IQ fiber-optic internet services meet this need by providing businesses with speeds of up to 10 Gbps in offices and 100 Gbps in data centers.
Pilot will be able to offer its customers broadband speeds that are 200 times faster than services offered by other northeastern providers with TeliaCarrier's global footprint of high-speed services, the company affirms. Telia Carrier's IP Transit services will also improve the end-user experience.
"Businesses today demand the highest-quality online experience to best serve their customers. Pilot started its business with this understanding and is committed to providing the highest-speed, most resilient, dedicated bandwidth," said Rob Pulkownik, Telia Carrier's director of market development. "The fact that Pilot chose Telia Carrier to deliver services to meet these demands highlights our ability to turn up services quickly and provide a resilient, global backbone at the highest speeds available. We're committed to partnering with Pilot to help them better serve their customers."
The first network to successfully transmit 1 Tbps in super channels on its U.S. network, Telia Carrier's global fiber backbone was the first to be 100G-enabled in Europe and North America alike, the company attests. According to Dyn Research's global backbone rankings, Telia Carrier's global internet backbone, AS1299, is currently ranked number one.
In January, ICE obtained access to Telia Carrier's Tier 1 internet backbone, enabling ICE to launch the first 100G Central American IP transit services to meet increasing broadband service demands (see "Telia Carrier's global fiber backbone chosen by Costarricense de Electricidad for Central American internet access"). The service provider enables connectivity across the globe by connecting over 230 points of presence (PoPs) throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East, including more than 80 PoPs in North America.
