Telia Carrier establishes two new PoPs in St. Petersburg

Telia Carrier has established two new points of presence (PoP) in St. Petersburg, Russia to meet customer demand.

The PoPs will also add more depth and diversity to the company’s network in a region experiencing major traffic growth, ensuring that customer needs are met and expanding the reach of its top-two ranked global IP backbone, AS1299.

Following the build-out, the global wholesale carrier will offer IP transit, Ethernet and wavelength services from two new data centre facilities in St. Petersburg - Miran and Selectel. As a result, content providers and operators, primarily within Russia and the Baltic states, can now choose from Telia Carrier’s portfolio of 100G+ services at these sites.

“More content and cloud providers are adding a local presence in the Russian market to provide services for millions of new customers. These providers all demand low latency, high capacity backbone services to support the delivery of rich content to the end user,” said Ilya Bulaev, sales director (Russia & CIS) for Telia Carrier. “These two new PoPs reinforce Telia Carrier’s depth of presence in the European and Russian markets, and enable content providers to enter new markets with extremely high capacity network service offerings.”

“Several dozen communications providers are already present in Selectel's data centers.” Said Kirill Malevanov, technical director Selectel. “We'd like to add more in the future, as new providers create new opportunities for our clients to develop their network infrastructure.”
