Leading network infrastructure and telecommunication services provider, Arelion announced that it has accomplished the expansion of the backbone fiber route in Norway.
Back in July 2020, the Norwegian Communications Authority awarded Arelion (previously Telia Carrier) the contract to build a new subterranean Internet route for Norway. The goal of the project was to offer a solution that fulfils the future connectivity needs of the region.
The new 750Km subterranean fiber route is spread across Oslo, Norway to Esbjerg, Denmark that’s where it connects with the broader Arelion pan-European network. The backbone fiber network additionally incorporates two additional PoP locations, one PoP in Bulk Fiber Networks’ OS-IX DC in Oslo and another PoP in Bulk Fiber Networks’ N01 in Kristiansand.
The company claims that the new backbone fiber route will double the existing capacity and will support the operation of new data center infrastructure within the region and thereby sufficing the future traffic needs.
Meanwhile, Arelion’s CEO, Staffan Göjeryd said there is a need for reliable and secure connectivity across the world. And, the new backbone fiber route to the European continent embraces the company’s mission to keep the world connected.
Furthermore, the director of the security department at the Norwegian Communications Authority, Elise K. Lindeberg said that Arelion’s new backbone fiber route will help Norway address its growing and diverse traffic needs to Europe and offer increased connection security for our nation, in the events of serious incidents.
