Telstra Global Adds MPLS PoPs in Europe, US
HONG KONG -- Telstra Global has increased its global Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network reach in Western Europe and American Midwest with the launch of new Points-of-Presence (PoPs) in Frankfurt, Paris, Amsterdam and Chicago.
Bernadette Noujaim Baldwin, Telstra Global’s Head of Connectivity and Platforms Portfolio said the addition of these latest sites provide customers with access to more than 1,900 PoPs worldwide across more than 230 countries and territories, including 377 PoPs in Europe and 341 PoPs in the United States (US).
“Directly connected to the Telstra Global MPLS backbone, the new infrastructure addresses increasing customer demand for connectivity into Asia Pacific and will help multinational organisations gain greater competitive advantage in their global operations”, Ms Noujaim Baldwin said.
“Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Paris are key business hubs and the launch of PoPs in these cities brings our total on-net presence to 6 in the European region, which forms an important part of our strategic expansion into Western Europe, enhancing our ability to serve our customers in this region. These will also act as an aggregation point for customers wishing to connect with growth opportunities in Asia Pacific and Australia.”
