Arelion introduces additional Belgrade PoP for growing ICT economy

Arelion (formerly Telia Carrier), has announced the availability of a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Belgrade, Serbia’s capital city. The new PoP, located at CETIN’s carrier-neutral datacenter, will provide high-speed IP Transit, Cloud Connect, and Internet Exchange (IX) Connect services for content providers and enterprises across the metropolitan area.

The new PoP will give customers improved access to local and international backbone IP services (including the Arelion AS1299 network), providing greater choice over where to house their services whilst also increasing the resilience available to customers running mission critical services.

Serbia takes great pride in its growing technology sector. According to Serbian Government figures, 10 per cent of the country’s GDP comes from the ICT sector with 3,354 firms in Q1 2022. The new Arelion PoP will support this expanding sector and its customers by bringing international markets and cloud providers closer to Serbia through additional routes and new levels of performance.

Patrik Andreasson, Head of Sales Nordic, CEE and Balkans at Arelion, said: “This new PoP is a key part of our investment in the Arelion network to ensure that enterprises, the ICT sector, and consumers have the best possible online experience, regardless of the service to which they are connecting. Cloud services play a key component in the delivery of those web applications and, with this additional PoP in Belgrade, we get customers even closer to those cloud service providers.”
