Telia Carrier lands PoP in Telxius Derio Communications Hub for MAREA access

Stephen Hardy

Telia Carrier says it has established a point-of-presence (PoP) at Telxius's Derio Communications Hub. The hub, situated near Bilbao, Spain, is the first in the EMEA region to be fully integrated with the MAREA submarine cable network. The PoP enables Telia Carrier to offer an additional option for low-latency route diversity between the Americas and Europe.

The creation of the PoP follows an agreement, announced in March 2019, between the two companies to connect their networks, with MAREA as a foundation (see "Telia Carrier, Telxius exchange terrestrial, undersea capacity").

The Derio Communications Hub operates as both an expanded cable landing station and a PoP. The hub is a carrier neutral facility with open architecture, offering high interconnection capacity as well as IP, capacity, Colocation, and Security services. It serves as a landing spot for MAREA, which runs 6600 km between Virginia Beach, VA, and Spain. The submarine cable network offers a design capacity of 200 Tbps (see “Microsoft, Facebook partner for MAREA undersea cable system”).

While the hub already offers several connection options, Telxius is completing two direct backhaul connections to Paris and Madrid that will use existing Telxius infrastructure.

"We see this as a very strategic route that complements Telia Carrier's number one global backbone," said Art Kazmierczak, director of business and network development at Telia Carrier. "By bringing our two networks together, we are creating a fully integrated carrier-class route that can handle capacity at scale to drive new edge activities in the region while supporting customers from international and local markets seeking to diversify their network and reduce latency."

"The combination of Telia Carrier's extensive global network and our Derio Communications Hub is a win-win for the world's largest operators, content providers and enterprises," added Enrique Valdés, sales vice president, Northern Region, Telxius Cable. "Colocating in Derio opens up a world of interconnection opportunities with the US via MAREA and with the main European hubs. We believe this will benefit large and small customers looking for flexible and innovative solutions that will adapt to the future demand of data services."
