PARIS -- Tradingcom Europe Group, Europe's leading telecommunications capacities trader, today announces the opening of a PoP (Point of Presence) in 60 Hudson Street, New York's biggest telecommunications building.

This new POP, which is additional to Tradingcom Europe's existing interconnect points in France (Paris), Germany (Frankfurt) and the United Kingdom (London), will allow the company to gain access to the American market, the biggest in the world, with thousands of voice carriers.

According to Telegeography, 40 per cent of the global voice traffic goes through New York, which, in most cases, is a major competitive transit point into Asia and Latin America.

In addition, American carriers are, at the present time, very competitive due to the particularly low level of the US dollar, and its exchange rate with the Euro.

"This new point of presence is in line with Tradingcom Europe's development strategy, as well as its position as a leader of telecommunications capacity trading," said Arnaud Beauregard, Chairman and CEO of Tradingcom Europe. "Tradingcom Europe, which is already trading with most incumbent and alternate carriers in the world, will now be able to develop its business by interconnecting in the next few weeks with multiple prestigious American carriers".

For its PoP in New York, Tradingcom Europe decided to partner with :

  • FLAG Telecom, international bandwidth carrier, and supplier of Tradingcom Europe's transatlantic capacity

  • FiberNet Telecom Group, United States leader in co-location and broadband connectivity in New York and Los Angeles.

In Europe, Tradingcom Europe has already partnered with leading co-location providers such as Telehouse in London and Paris, and Itenos in Frankfurt.
