Stockholm/Rome – 15 January 2019 – Telia Carrier announced today that Unidata, one of Italy’s most successful ISP and data center providers, is using Telia Carrier’s recently launched Rome PoP (Point-of-Presence) to ensure its enterprise customers get the best possible connectivity experience.
The Rome PoP gives Unidata direct access to Telia Carrier’s global fiber backbone, the first 100G-enabled network in both Europe and North America. Together with three other PoPs in Milan – Caldera, Data4 and Supernap - the Rome PoP provides crucial IP backbone and Cloud Connect services for enterprises, operators and content providers throughout the country, who demand a reliable high-speed backbone for their traffic.
Renato Brunetti, president of Unidata, said, “Telia Carrier was a clear choice for us when looking for a network partner. Our customers now get the highest quality connectivity in the region, and the partnership with Telia means we can continue to evolve our customer offerings through services such as Cloud Connect, which give enterprises a secure, dedicated and scaleable connection to their cloud, wherever it is in the world.”
Telia Carrier has made significant investments in Italy during recent years, ensuring the network is in place to support the ever growing content and traffic demands of businesses and end users alike.
“We foresaw the rise in traffic throughout Italy and have spent two years building the infrastructure needed to ensure enterprises, content providers and ISP’s like Unidata, can maintain the performance of their services and expand their offerings to take full advantage of Internet and cloud-based technology ,” said Davide Binaghi, managing director of Telia Carrier Italy. “Unidata shares Telia’s passion to be at the cutting edge of connectivity, and we look forward to a long partnership together.”
