Ethernet still rules at 50
1973 was a pretty busy year: The US Senate Watergate Committee began its work, the first mobile phone call was made in Manhattan, Paul McCartney released the album “Band on the Run” and the Sydney Opera House was officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II, to name but a few key historical events. But at Xerox […]
Arelion’s network evolution
It has now been more than a year since Arelion began its new life, leaving behind the Telia Carrier brand and facing the market as an independent entity. Over that year we have seen the company start to make more aggressive network investments, moving into new parts of the world, such as Mexico. With us today to give his perspective on Arelion’s network infrastructure, its future, and the state of the broader network infrastructure marketplace is Mattias Fridström, Arelion’s Chief Evangelist.
Changing the way we build networks
The Covid-19 not only demonstrated the critical importance telecommunications infrastructure has on every individual, businesses, and society in general but also the need for telecommunications networks to be agile, cost effective and scalable in a way that we never imagined before.
Mexico Expansion: Bridging Borders
Connectivity brings us together, but it is not always an easy road. Mexico is Latin America’s second-largest market, preceded only by Brazil. While mobile technology has long been available in Mexico, access to affordable fixed-line Internet only started to become available in the past decade, and connectivity still varies across the country. This lack of […]
Securing cloud connectivity for IoT
We first became aware of cellular IoT connectivity by accident. After blocking illegitimate 3G signalling data traffic to our network in 2015, we got a call from a mobile operator (not a customer) complaining that we had taken down their connected car programme. Additional issues arose and soon it was clear that the hype around […]
The changing economics of the Internet of the future
This article was originally published by Light Reading. For many years, the telecom industry has been touting solutions that promote the new “Internet of the Future.” While no one could have predicted a global pandemic and its impact on the telecom market, a small handful of operators were already quietly building and planning their […]
Stepping back into the Ethernet
Getting the high-speed connectivity your business needs can be a balancing act between different technologies and topologies. Most companies today have a mixture of on-premises and cloud-based solutions that make up their IT infrastructure, along with multiple locations, and possibly multiple owned-data centres. Working out the best way to meet your connectivity needs across such […]
Bridging The Digital Divide and Expanding The Network
This interview with the 5G Talent Talk podcast, hosted by Carrie Charles, was originally published by RCR Wireless News. Listen to the episode here. I am thrilled about my guest.

Building Network Diversity into US Market
2020 was a record-breaking year for us in terms of network growth, with substantial global growth of 30 new Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world. While Telia Carrier has been consistently ranked the number one backbone provider with more than 65 percent of Internet routes directly connected to our network, last year we added […]
Placing Lyon on the digital world map
One of the most exciting things for us about expanding our network backbone and the services we can offer is the wider story it tells about how digital communications is changing. On a global scale we are seeing the expectations from enterprises and consumers increase: they want access to new content and services – with […]
400G: It’s here and HUGE!
If you know anything about Telia Carrier, it is that we are always thinking about the future needs of our network and customers. We saw significant traffic growth of more than 50% in 2020, and currently a similar trajectory for 2021. Whilst this remains well within the capacity of our network, we are looking forward […]
The Internet routing security challenge
If asked how traffic makes its way across the Internet, most IT professionals would explain how the Internet is made up of thousands of networks that are connected, and that traffic is routed through those networks to its final destination. In its simplest form, there is nothing wrong with the description and, for many, it […]
