Arelion adds PoPs at Telxius landing stations 

March 14, 2024
The collaboration will expand connectivity between Latin America and North America.

Telxius announced on March 12 that it is collaborating with Arelion to provide fully diverse, multi-terabit connectivity at Telxius’ Boca Raton and Jacksonville, Florida landing stations, establishing Arelion Points-of-Presence (PoPs) at all of Telxius’ landing stations. The expansion will connect Latin American customers to North America through submarine and terrestrial systems.

Edison De Leon, regional director of Latin America and the Caribbean at Arelion, said in a press release, “Arelion’s new PoPs at Telxius’ landing stations along the Florida Peninsula will provide Latin American markets with high-capacity gateway access to the North American connectivity ecosystem. Through this investment in the Florida Peninsula, Arelion continues our established partnership with Telxius to serve the technological needs of internet carriers and content providers through complete, collaborative connectivity solutions.”

The PoPs reportedly enable 400G wavelength services over open line systems, and customers of the companies will benefit from a portfolio of submarine and terrestrial backhauls and terrestrial connectivity services, which include high-capacity wavelengths for service providers, content providers, and enterprises.

Carlos Casado, Telxius vice president of sales, Northern Region, said in the press release, “We at Telxius are committed to expanding our high-capacity terrestrial backhauls in combination with our next-generation subsea cable networks to connect the world’s digital hubs and better serve our customers across the Americas. Our continued collaboration will provide ultra-high capacity, low latency, and robust access to Latin America and transatlantic markets for Arelion and its customers. For Telxius, it secures 400G transmission services in our Boca Raton and Jacksonville landing stations, enabling resilient Tier-1 optical transport and high-speed access to Arelion’s North American network for customers.
