Telstra Global is set to expand its presence in Europe after signing a Network to Network Interconnection (NNI) agreement with Deutsche Telekom-owned GTS, which has itself increased its footprint on the continent.

The deal sees GTS’ 27 Points of Presence (PoPs) across Central and Eastern Europe – including cities such as Prague, Bucharest, Warsaw, Bratislava and Budapest – enhance Telstra Global’s existing IPVPN service coverage of more than 1,900 PoPs in 230 countries and territories worldwide.

Australia-based Telstra said the NNI agreement was made in response to growing demand for connectivity in Europe, which have seen some businesses searching abroad for solutions.

Bernadette Noujaim Baldwin, Head of the Connectivity and Platforms Portfolio at Telstra, said the deal would help European organisations to gain greater competitive advantage.

The news was announced as GTS revealed it is to increase the number of country-based Cloud platforms it has.

The company, which DT acquired last November, will launch a cloud platform in Slovakia, in addition to existing operating platforms in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania.

It said data privacy laws, which require companies wishing to migrate critical aplications to the cloud to use infrastructure based in their country of operation, had influenced the decision.

Amongst a range of new solutions, the company is offering Disaster Recovery options and a Hybrid Cloud service, which lets companies integrate their existing ITC systems, through local servers, or other cloud providers, with GTS's Cloud technology.

This capacity to "mix and match" systems means that companies can preserve their existing ITC infrastructure and integrate it with GTS's, it said, eliminating the costs incurred by building new systems from the ground up.

“GTS has seen increased demand for our cloud services through the CEE region, growing at a CAGR of over 180 percent over the last two years," commented Ignacio Irurita, CTO of GTS.

“To support various national data protection standards and deliver optimal performance, enterprises are increasingly demanding that their cloud environments are managed and stored locally.”
