Telia Carrier adds Marseilles PoPs as gateways to submarine networks

Telia Carrier says it now has a point of presence (PoP) within Jaguar Network's Marseilles data center. The PoP joins a previous setup within Interxion's Marseilles data center to provide redundancy as well as future connectivity to a pair of submarine network systems that will soon land on the city’s shores.

Telia Carrier says it now has a point of presence (PoP) within Jaguar Network's Marseilles data center. The PoP joins a previous setup within Interxion's Marseilles data center to provide redundancy as well as future connectivity to a pair of submarine network systems that will soon land on the city’s shores.

Both PoPs provide connectivity to Telia Carrier’sAS1299 fiber-optic backbone to support delivery of the fiber-optic network operator’swholesale IP transit, wavelength, and Ethernet services. The PoPs also will provide access to the SEA-ME-WE 5 (Southeast Asia, Middle East, West Europe), a 24-Tbps system, and the AAE-1 (Asia, Africa, Europe), a 40-Tbps system when they are ready for service. Access to the new submarine cable networks will help Telia Carrier's backbone direct traffic from Asia to European networking hubs, including London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Frankfurt.

"The influx of traffic from Asian carriers to Marseilles via multiple subsea cables systems has created a need to manage and re-direct it to the appropriate hubs throughout Europe," said Johan Godal, global product manager at Telia Carrier."In an effort to provide a diverse array of connectivity options for its customers, Telia Carrier is prepared for this traffic and has built out multiple PoPs in the region to connect to our top-two global backbone."
