TeliaSonera IC Delivers 100G Internet to SUP46

TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC), in collaboration with Cisco Systems, is providing a 100 Gbps Internet connection to Stockholm-based start-up hub, SUP46.

TeliaSonera International Carrier owns and operates a top-two ranked Global IP backbone. Using a new generation Cisco ASR 903, SUP46 gets direct access to a 100 Gbps backbone router at the core of TSIC's global network, effectively turning their downtown Stockholm premises into a high-capacity Internet PoP (Point-of-Presence).

"We wanted to see what happens when you remove the limits on innovation," says Brendan Ives, CEO TeliaSonera International Carrier. "Innovation is already borderless thanks to the Internet. We wanted to see what happens when we also remove the limits on connectivity. We believe limitless connectivity will give big ideas the space to grow. Today's start-ups will be an important part of our customer base in the near future, so we are pleased to be able to support them now. It's all part of our mission to carry the big ideas of tomorrow."
