STOCKHOLM -- On the heels of last year’s North American fiber expansion in November, which added 18,400 km to its global backbone, TSIC continues its network build out in the region which now spans over 24,000 kilometers of fiber. Recent additions include the Dallas metro network as well as an additional point of presence in Washington DC.

“Like every expansion we do, the rationale for extending our North American footprint is quite simple – our customers rely on us for high performance connectivity so that they can meet ever increasing end-user demands for access to everything, anywhere, anytime”, says Brendan Ives, President, TeliaSonera International Carrier.

Extended network reach and increased diversity were also the reason behind the February addition of a point of presence (PoP) in Boca Raton, Florida. Along with TSIC’s existing PoP´s in Miami and Jacksonville; Latin American customers now have a third way to connect to TSIC’s global backbone. And with the upcoming Olympics and FIFA World Cup in Brazil, this benefits a global audience.

In a separate release:

STOCKHOLM -- TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) is expanding its high-capacity transport capabilities and increasing global-local connectivity to and from Mexico as well as major South American communications hubs with new Points of Presence (PoPs) throughout metropolitan and suburban Dallas, TX.

In addition to being the fourth-largest metropolitan service area in the U.S., Dallas serves as a major Internet and peering exchange point as well as a critical communications hub for the Southern United States. Its geographic proximity to the region, compounded further by robust network interconnectivity, make the city a major gateway to Latin America, including Mexico - the third-largest destination for telecommunications traffic from the U.S.

Ivo Pascucci, Regional Director, Americas for TeliaSonera International Carrier, says, “Our Dallas PoPs serve as strategic termination and connectivity points on a critical route for customers in Mexico and South America as well as the greater Dallas metro area. In addition to international growth driven by the Mexican market, we see a lot of opportunity in South Texas and are excited to expand our metro presence and diverse fiber routes throughout the state”.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
