Telefónica deploys second international PoP in Mexico CityGeneral
Madrid, 10 December 2018.- Telefónica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communications solutions for the B2B market, has announced the launch of a new IP network point of presence (PoP) in Mexico City. This strengthens Telefónica’s existing infrastructure in Mexico which now boasts three International PoPs – two in Mexico City and one in Monterrey.
Telefónica has over 115 international PoPs, spanning 69 cities in 41 countries, and more than 1,000 MPLS national PoPs. This expansion builds on Telefónica’s existing network infrastructure in Latin America for corporate customers, the most extensive in the region. This makes Telefónica well-placed to support the growing demand from its B2B customers for a variety of services across the country and the region. It also facilitates closer collaboration with all its customers and providers to build even more robust and optimized solutions, bringing greater efficiency and more reliable connectivity to guarantee seamless delivery of their services.
The new PoP is located in KIO Networks’ Tier-III neutral data centre facilities. It includes double carrier-class routing equipment, making it possible to offer redundant solutions, and is connected to Telefónica’s Tier-1 international network in the US and Mexico through 10 Gbps links. Additionally, it incorporates infrastructure which enables the deployment of virtualised network functions (NFV), just as Telefónica already offers in other locations in the region, like Miami and Sao Paulo.
