Telia Carrier Inks Strategic Alliance with CyrusOne

Telia Carrier is partnering with CyrusOne, one of the largest carrier-neutral data center providers in the United States.

The agreement provides CyrusOne’s enterprise customers with access to Telia Carrier’s global IP network AS1299, as well as total integration into CyrusOne’s National IX platform for connectivity and access to cloud services.

CyrusOne’s diverse customer base includes over 170 Fortune 1000 customers across more than 30 locations globally, including a sizeable Texas footprint. Telia Carrier’s global IP network, AS1299, offers CyrusOne customers immediate 100G availability, scalable to multi-terabit capacity, and includes the benefits of the wholesale carrier’s wavelength, IP and Ethernet services.

“Telia Carrier is not only an incredible partner, but also a vital connection to the many underlying services that our National IX platform provides to large enterprise customers,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager, interconnection at CyrusOne. “Connecting to Telia Carrier’s 100G backbone is crucial in connecting our data center facilities to one of the largest privately owned networks available at exceptional speeds.”

CyrusOne specializes in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties. The company provides mission-critical data center facilities for more than 940 customers, including nine of the Fortune 20 and more than 170 of the Fortune 1000.

“As one of the leading providers of colocation services for large enterprise customers, CyrusOne provides a unique opportunity for Telia Carrier to expand into previously untouched verticals,” said Ivo Pascucci, regional director, Americas at Telia Carrier. “This is a mutually beneficial partnership and we look forward to continuing to grow our regional and global offerings together.”
