Two New IPX PoPs Expand Our IPX Footprint
Bonn, Germany – November 2, 2020 – Deutsche Telekom Global Carrier (TGC) has announced the launch of two new IPX Points-of-Presence. Located in Marseille, France and Dallas, Texas, both offer bandwidths of several 100 gigabits per second (n x 100 Gbit/s).
The expanded infrastructure provides clients of TGC with direct access to Deutsche Telekom’s Tier 1 IPX network, which is one of the world’s largest. As requirements for enhanced performance, more reliable connectivity and higher quality continually increase, these PoPs are part of TGC’s strategy to expand its IPX footprint, with a focus on both the European and Americas markets.
With access to an all-IP network, businesses gain numerous benefits, including easier integration of digital applications or services such as critical IoT use cases. They are also ready to quickly take advantage of the emerging technologies that 5G and Edge developments will bring.
Csaba Füzesi, Head of Product Management Voice & Mobile Services, said, “Today’s ever-growing data volumes and need for low-latency data roaming connectivity must match the rising expectations of users. At TGC we are always several steps ahead of demand because we’re committed to providing our customers and partners with premium-quality global connectivity. These new PoPs are part of that promise.”
TGC’s entire voice and mobile portfolio is now available via the new PoP locations. Those services include voice hubbing, roaming enablement (signaling, data roaming, value-added-services), messaging (A2P, P2P) and Wi-Fi roaming. The PoP in Dallas helps TGC meet customer expectations across the American continent, while the PoP in Marseille provides TGC with an additional gateway to emerging markets in Africa and the Middle East.
