LONDON -- TeleCity (LSE:TCY.L), the leading European provider of data centre and managed services, today announced a new contract with network operator TeliaSonera International Carrier, for the provision of managed data centre services in Paris. Already a customer in TeleCity’s centres in London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Frankfurt and Stockholm, TeliaSonera International Carrier has selected TeleCity’s Paris data centre for the expansion of its European network, where it will locate both backbone and application server infrastructure. TeleCity customers in France will now be able to connect direct to TeliaSonera’s international IP and Capacity network.

TeliaSonera International Carrier has contracted for a dedicated private suite from which it will offer customers direct access to its pan-European network and range of wholesale services. TeleCity is also providing an enhanced power supply, which will enable TeliaSonera to operate over 500 ‘blade’ servers on behalf of its customers.

TeliaSonera International Carrier cited the secure environment, the managed services capability, and flexibility with regards to the provision of electrical and other infrastructure along with the highly skilled engineering team, as some of the reasons for selecting TeleCity’s facility in Paris.

“We are very satisfied with the services which TeleCity provides for us in its other European sites,” said Mr Jean-Claude Geha, VP & Head of Networks at TeliaSonera International Carrier. “It is a natural and logical development for us to strengthen our relationship by choosing TeleCity to host our infrastructure upgrade in France.”

“This is a major new contract for both TeleCity France and our customers,” said Michel Brignano, Country Manager for TeleCity France. “The agreement confirms our place as a major player in the French data centre market and also enables us to offer our customers access to TeliaSonera International Carrier’s tier one international IP and Capacity network.”
