TeliaSonera Goes International with 100G

 TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC) announced the activation of 100G across its North American network, connecting 23 cities across the continent.  This add to the company's 100G European network, which stretches from Madrid to Moscow.

“We own and operate our own global fiber backbone. This lets us deploy the technology required to build a future-enabled network. For our wholesale customers, 100G means the ability to scale up capacity without scaling up complexity – and doing so cost-efficiently”, says Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier.

TSIC is also looking at options to upgrade its trans-Atlantic connection to 100G. This will create a seamless 100G enabled network encompassing Europe and North America.

TSIS is using NSN’s hiT 7300 platform for 100G in Europe and has deployed Infinera’s DTN-X platform for 100G in North America.
