TransTeleCom (TTK), a Russia-based fiber-optic communications network operator, amplified its network connectivity for Western Europe using Hibernia’s EtherReach Global-IX service.
TTK operates a fiber-optic network spanning over 76,000 km throughout Russia and offers a comprehensive suite of network services including IP Access (News - Alert), international private lines, virtual Ethernet channels and also IP VPN services, tailored for carriers, enterprises and service providers.
Vitaly Kotov, vice president and head of the backbone unit at TTK remarked, “Hibernia Networks has a robust network footprint. By using Hibernia’s extensive presence at all of the European exchange points, TTK raises the quality and performance of its Internet services. TTK is already connected to major Internet exchanges in Europe, including LINX (London), DE-CIX (News - Alert) (Frankfurt), AMS-IX (Amsterdam) and we plan to expand our presence throughout Europe leveraging Hibernia infrastructure. This is very important for TTK, as we aim to provide the highest-quality services for our global clients. With Hibernia’s solid price/performance ratios, we can expand into additional markets effectively.”
The EtherReach Global-IX solution is said to be ideally positioned to give customers control over their own connections and routing characteristics which should also enable hosting companies, content service providers (CSP (News - Alert)) and mid-sized ISPs to directly connect to Internet Exchanges in regions where they do not have any infrastructure of their own.
It can ensure connectivity to a choice of Internet Exchange locations with port capacities from 100Mb to 10G and enable transparent Ethernet connectivity and also allow users to exploit the reach of Hibernia’s next-generation, congestion-free, scalable Carrier Ethernet network, and peer at more locations—enabling them to optimize traffic flow with better latencies and reliability.
Eric Gutshall, senior vice president of global sales at Hibernia Networks, added, “Because of our state-of-the-art network, Hibernia’s services are extremely flexible and scalable, offering clients a multitude of options and combinations. With our EtherReach Global-IX service, we can easily scale from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps, allowing carriers immediate access to major global Internet exchanges – all across highly optimized routes. These qualities are integral for content providers and carriers worldwide. We look forward to working with TTK, as they share our commitment to service excellence for their clients.”
