100G services available to growing Pittsburgh tech scene

Telia Carrier has expanded its partnership with 365 Data Centers, by now offering 100G services to customers in 365’s Pittsburgh edge facility via Telia Carrier’s award-winning, top-two ranked IP backbone. The need for high-bandwidth capacity in the city is driven by the development of innovative applications such as the testing of autonomous ridesharing services, the pervasiveness of IoT products and services, and the growing number of start-up technology companies in the area supported by local incubators including academia giants.

Local incubators enable new ideas and technologies, some evolving into start-ups, and the ecosystem of co-working facilities and accelerator programs in Pittsburgh facilitate the creation of these new companies. With venture capital dollars funding dozens of companies in the area, Pittsburgh and the university are part of the Silicon Strip transformation now emerging in the former Rust Belt.

365 Data Centers’ Pittsburgh customers including businesses, carriers, cable operators, mobile data operators and content, cloud and managed service providers, will now have access to Telia Carrier’s IP Transit, Ethernet, IoT and mobile data services. Telia Carrier already provides 100Gbps services in seven other 365 Data Centers including Detroit, MI.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Tampa, Fla.; Nashville, Tenn.; St Louis, Mo.; Cleveland, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Ind.

“By partnering with 365 Data Centers to offer 100G services to mobile operators, broadband providers and education networks in Pittsburgh, Telia Carrier continues to expand its presence throughout the edge markets of North America,” said Art Kazmierczak, Telia Carrier’s Director of business and network development, Americas. “We anticipate the need for high-bandwidth services will continue to grow in Pittsburgh, as IoT products and services continue to drive talent recruitment and start-up incubators to previously underserved communities.”
