Telia Carrier says it has completed the Frankfurt-Warsaw Express, a direct DWDM fiber-optic network route between the two cities. The route includes connectivity in Prague and Nuremburg.

The new route increases the resiliency and redundancy of Telia Carrier's fiber network in Europe, which is part of the international connectivity provider's AS1299 global IP backbone. Telia Carrier uses the backbone to deliver wholesale IP transit, wavelength, and Ethernet services to carriers, content providers, cloud providers, and mobile operators in Europe and globally.

"Frankfurt to Warsaw is one of the largest telecom routes in Europe. This expansion enables Telia Carrier to serve customers in the region with diverse connections and low latency," said Johan Godal, global product manager, wavelength and network outsourcing services at Telia Carrier."By adding more routes eastward, Telia Carrier continues to be at the forefront of providing global connectivity services on a resilient backbone."

The Frankfurt-Warsaw Express branches in Prague and Nuremberg enable Telia Carrier both to serve the growing Czech and Polish regions and support network traffic coming in to Warsaw from China and Russia. The route also offers a low-latency alternative path to major data center locations in Germany, such as Berlin and Munich, the service provider says.

Overall, Telia Carrier says its AS1299 backbone supports connections to more than 200 points of presence (PoPs) across Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East, including more than 70 PoPs in North America.
