Telia Carrier says it has established a point-of-presence at the OJUS Cable Landing Station in Hollywood, FL. The PoP enables Telia Carrier to offer fiber-optic network connectivity to the Nap of the Americas in Miami and the Equinix MI3 data center in Boca Raton as well as the company's AS1299 global fiber backbone network. Including facilities linked to AS1299, Telia Carrier says it can provide connectivity to more than 70 PoPs in North America and more than 200 around the world.
OJUS offers access to such submarine cable networks as MAYA-1, Americas-II, and Columbus-III, which link the U.S. to the Caribbean and Central and South America. Telia Carrier says its diverse buried fiber backhaul network in the area of OJUS offers protected connectivity from both natural and man-made threats. The company notes that customers can leverage the nearly 45 miles of physical separation between the facilities in Boca Raton and Miami for added diversity and redundancy.
"Telia Carrier is dedicated to delivering reliable and secure connectivity to address the continued growth of bandwidth demand in the region," said Art Kazmierczak, director of business development, Americas at Telia Carrier."The diverse network design provides dual or protected connection options to MAYA-1 and other subsea cable systems and allows Telia Carrier to service Central and South American customers with the resiliency and high-speed performance that they demand."
