Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier Launches New Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Miami, Florida
Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier has launched a new IPX and IP Point-of-Presence in Miami, Florida, with bandwidths of several 1 / 10 / 100 gigabits per second (n x 1, n x 10, n x 100 Gbit/s). The PoP is hosted within Equinix, a leading global data center provider.
The Miami PoP provides clients with direct access to Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier’s Tier1 IP and IPX network, which is one of the world’s largest.

Miles McWilliams, Head of Sales Internet & Content Services at Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier, said: “Today’s ever-growing data volumes match the rising expectations of users. At Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier we are always several steps ahead of demand because we’re committed to providing our customers and partners with superior, future-proof connectivity and quality. This new PoP is part of that promise.”
