STOCKHOLM – today announced the expansion of their North American network via an agreement with Equinix in Mexico. Through deployments at Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers servicing the Mexico City (Queretaro) and Monterrey metros, Telia Carrier will expand its footprint to meet growing regional demand for high-speed interconnection to serve local cloud, application, and content providers, and enterprises.
Proximity of local data center storage and computing resources is particularly important to application and security services providers as well as media and gaming companies, which increasingly need to locate digital assets close to their end users to speed up content delivery and ensure optimal performance for an improved end-user experience.
Equinix customers in Mexico will be able to take advantage of Telia Carrier's number one global backbone, AS1299, as well as the local availability of IP Transit, Cloud Connect, DDoS Mitigation, Ethernet and IPX services.
Telia Carrier's new diverse and latency-optimized routes provide capacity at scale linking international content, cloud and application providers to edge deployments at Equinix data centers enhancing the local connectivity ecosystem.
"Adding two points of presence (PoPs) with Equinix in Monterrey and Querétaro support the growing demand for Telia Carrier's wholesale and enterprise services in the region," said Luis Velasquez, Mexico business manager, Telia Carrier. "Providing a trusted connectivity choice to the market and award-winning customer focus continues Telia Carrier's success in this region, and with Equinix globally.
