Telia Carrier’s global fibre backbone has been chosen by the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) of Costa Rica to provide dedicated internet access to customers in Central America, in line with increased demand.

The tier-1 internet backbone is built on a redundant architecture, and reaches the Maya-1 Cable system – an important gateway for Central America. The operator says that it will enable the launch of the first 100G IP transit services and, together with Telia Carrier’s IP Transit services in the U.S., play an important role in supplying such demands as Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection.

German Sanchez, head of ICE Group’s infrastructure division, commented: ‘Working with a leading tier-1 internet provider such as Telia Carrier assures our customers a direct secure connection to internet access with lower latency, and the flexibility they need to grow, as well as more capacity than they need.’

Agreed Edison De Leon, regional director of Latin America and the Caribbean for Telia Carrier: ‘This capability marks an important step in meeting the growth of market demand and ensuring the development of telecommunications in Costa Rica.’
