Arelion Launches Two Routes Connecting US to Mexico

Arelion (formerly Telia Carrier) announced two diverse routes from the United States into Monterrey, continuing its expansion into Mexico’s markets. These high-capacity routes will provide seamless, reliable connectivity that improves upon legacy cables in the region.

As an early leader in open optical networking, Arelion’s routes leverage open optical line systems and support multi-vendor 400G wave capability, including Bright ZR+ disaggregated optics, offering resilient local connectivity and flexible high-speed access to content, application and cloud providers in the United States.

Arelion delivers an end-to-end seamless customer experience from sales to delivery, to ongoing operation and support for customers seeking solutions between the United States and Mexico. This capability provides the additional availability demanded by customers to avoid service disruption and offers diverse routing into major US cities needed by Mexico’s information and communications technology (ICT) sector.

The DWDM routes will serve the region’s rising demand for scalable, high-capacity bandwidth transport while simplifying access to Mexico’s local markets for Over-the-Top (OTT) providers in the United States, Europe and Asia.

With the addition of these routes, Arelion provides customers in Mexico with enhanced access to Arelion’s internet backbone, AS1299, as well as Arelion’s portfolio of leading IP and optical technology services, including high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, Wavelengths, Ethernet and IPX services for service providers, content providers and enterprises.
