RETN completes new Stockholm-Helsinki route deployment
International network service provider RETN has successfully completed deployment of a new route between Stockholm and Helsinki.
The provider owns an international fibre network encompassing more than 132,000km across approximately 865+ points-of-presence (PoPs). It is designed to allow the provider to have maximum control of its physical network, which runs on components from equipment vendors including Infinera, Juniper and Ciena.
RETN’s solution to connect Europe and Asia is built on its own homogeneous dense-wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) and internet protocol multi-protocol label switching (IP/MPLS) network platform and widely branched land routes, passing through Western Europe, Eastern Europe and up to the border with China and further onwards into Southeast Asia.
With a route length of 450km, the new route will benefit RETN's customers in the Nordic region thanks to the low round trip times of 4.45 milliseconds, allowing applications to work faster – crucial for enterprise customers.
Maxim Lukoshius, Deputy CTO of RETN says: "We are thrilled to announce that we have successfully launched our new Stockholm-Helsinki route deployment. By introducing this new route, RETN is increasing the diversity of its network routes in the region. This upgrade will enable RETN to meet the ever-increasing customer demand for high-capacity, low-latency services with built-in redundancy."
