Italian ISP and data centre provider, Unidata, is using Telia Carrier’s new PoP (point-of-presence) in Rome to boost connectivity.

The Rome PoP gives Unidata direct access to Telia Carrier’s global fibre backbone, which is the first 100G-enabled network in both Europe and North America.

Together with three other PoPs in Milan – Caldera, Data4 and Supernap – the Rome PoP provides an IP backbone for enterprises, operators and content providers in Italy who need a reliable, high-speed backbone for their traffic.

Renato Brunetti, president of Unidata, said, “Telia Carrier was a clear choice for us when looking for a network partner. Our customers now get the highest quality connectivity in the region, and the partnership with Telia means we can continue to evolve our customer offerings through services such as Cloud Connect, which give enterprises a secure, dedicated and scalable connection to their cloud, wherever it is in the world.”

Preparing the network

“We foresaw the rise in traffic throughout Italy and have spent two years building the infrastructure needed to ensure enterprises, content providers and ISPs like Unidata can maintain the performance of their services and expand their offerings to take full advantage of Internet and cloud-based technology ,” said Davide Binaghi, managing director of Telia Carrier Italy. “Unidata shares Telia’s passion to be at the cutting edge of connectivity, and we look forward to a long partnership together.
