GlobalNet announces new PoP in Warsaw

GlobalNet, a Dutch backbone provider, says it has confirmed its expansion into Central Europe with one new point of presence (PoP) in Warsaw. The new PoP is based at the Equinix WA1 data centre.

GlobalNet says the new PoP marks its first foray into Poland and its third launch in Central Europe. The new site will serve as a critical hub, offering robust connectivity options of IP-transit and DATAIX services via 1G, 10G, 40G, and 100G ports. DATAIX is an internet exchange network between telecom operators and content generators in Europe and Asia.

Moreover, says GlobalNet, the Berlin-Warsaw route will bring new transport options to the region due to GlobalNet's European backbone spanning through Stockholm, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Berlin and now Warsaw.

Alex Surkoff, Business Development Director at GlobalNet explains that more is on the way. As he says: “This is an important step for us as we intend to expand our network throughout Poland and other countries in the region. We see a noticeable interest in our services among current and potential DATAIX members, which is why we decided to deploy our 69th point of presence in the Warsaw data centre. The new connection in Poland's capital will enable GlobalNet to interconnect the Northern, Western, Central and Eastern European regions through a single DWDM [dense wavelength-division multiplexing] system.”

GlobalNet says the addition of the Warsaw PoP will significantly enhance the service offerings to its existing and prospective members, providing improved access to international and local traffic via the DATAIX international distributed peering network.

This new PoP not only strengthens the company’s network but also enhances its ability to deliver high-speed internet access and connectivity with full channel redundancy across Europe.

GlobalNet says it remains committed to its rapid expansion strategy, with further developments expected to enhance connectivity and digital service capabilities across Europe and Asia.
