Telia Carrier Expands into Mexico

Telia Carrier has begun offering to provide wholesale IP Transit, Ethernet, IPX and Cloud Connect for Internet Service Providers (ISPs), content and cloud providers in Mexico. The company is rolling-out its first Point of Presence (PoP) in the city of Queretaro, north of Mexico City, a major industrial growth hub and nexus for content provider data center deployments.

Telia Carrier will enable ISPs and content providers in Mexico to connect to its global IP backbone, AS1299, one of the largest in the world, at the highest speeds available in the region.

The company said it will also build out its fiber infrastructure over time and the telecom reform initiatives in Mexico were opening the door for wholesale and other services.

“We see a huge demand in Mexico for IP Transit, DDoS protection and Cloud Connect services, and we already have many customers there, including mobile operators, local access providers and ISPs amongst others,” said Luis Velasquez, Mexico business manager, Telia Carrier. “ISPs and broadband carriers have had limited options to help them meet the needs of the Mexican market. The Mexican government is taking the initiative by opening the market and creating a competitive landscape, which will ultimately fuel the pace of digitalization in the country. With its formidable backbone, Telia Carrier now has the opportunity to directly serve mid-size ISPs looking for high-bandwidth solutions that will enable them to deliver better services and cloud connectivity to their customers.”

Telia Carrier expands in Pacific NW via 2 new PoPs in Portland

Telia Carrier, the wholesale carrier operation of Sweden-based Telia, announced the launch of two new PoPs in the Portland area of Oregon to help improve network diversity and connectivity for service, content and cloud providers in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

Telia's new PoP locations include Hillsboro, a key connection point for subsea cable landings from the west as well for as international traffic deriving from Asia. Telia noted that the expansion into the Portland area is designed to offer OTT providers, hyper-scale cloud networks and carriers the ability to directly connect in-market, rather than having to backhaul traffic to other regions, resulting in increased network latency.

Telia noted that the Portland metropolitan area, referred to as Silicon Forest, has become a hub for carriers and content providers, as well as regional education and city networks, connecting to greater Portland and eastern Oregon, encouraged by factors such as green power sources. As a result, the construction of large-scale data centres in the region is accelerating driven by terabit-level traffic demands.

As a new market entrant, Telia Carrier's two PoPs in the region provide new, diverse network routing. The company stated that the Hillsboro location features long haul routes that offer diversity from downtown Portland, where many legacy carrier facilities are located, while carefully selected routing at river crossings further enhances reliability.



  • Telia Carrier has recently announced a number of new PoPs in Europe, as well as the deployment of new routes and the upgrade of existing systems. In April, it announced that it had extended its backbone in the U.S. via a new 100 Gbit/s-enabled express route between New York City and Chicago. The new route is designed to improve the efficiency of existing routes, including New York to San Francisco and New York to Denver.

Telia Carrier Tests TIP's Voyager Platform with Coriant

Telia Carrier, the wholesale carrier division of Sweden-based Telia, announced that the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and Facebook have completed a trial of 100 and 200 Gbit/s transmission utilising Voyager equipment and technology developed by Coriant over its 1,089 km Stockholm to Hamburg route.

Telia Carrier stated that a key feature of the trial was the demonstration of the ability to effectively implement 16QAM signalling over long distances. Facebook has contributed Voyager, a whitebox transponder and routing solution that is being made available to the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) with the aim of enabling more open networks and a more connected world.

The company noted that the TIP aim of bringing a new approach to building and deploying telecom networks aligns with its own Carrier Declarations program, designed to help Telia Carrier expand and develop its network organically and be a leader in industry innovation.


For the trial, Telia Company, the parent company of Telia Carrier and a TIP member, supported Telia Carrier in conducting the test of the Voyager solution and has shared the results of the trial with other member companies. Carried out in early March, the trial demonstrated that decoupled DWDM transponder systems can offer a low cost, low power option, while also providing the necessary flexibility and accessibility to allow service providers to implement them within existing networks.

Following the trial, Telia Carrier is working with TIP, Facebook and Coriant towards the objective of disaggregating the hardware and software components of the network stack as part of the wider effort to make connectivity available to all.

Facebook unveiled Voyager at the TIP Summit last November and contributed the design to the TIP community. Recently, TIP cited forthcoming trial deployments of the solution by Telia, and noted that Orange was working with Facebook and the TIP Open Optical Pack Transport project group to evaluate the solution


When it introduced the platform in November, TIP stated that Equinix had tested Voyager with Lumentum's open line system over 140 km of production fibre, and that MTN had shared the results of a test of Voyager over its production network in South Africa. In addition, it was noted that Facebook, Acacia Communications, Broadcom, Celestica, Lumentum and Snaproute would deliver a disaggregated hardware and software optical networking platform, while ADVA was providing support for the solution.
