The great thing about operating a business in Finland is that you’re at the heart of the action. Finnish businesses are very well positioned,
right at the centre of world commerce. And if you’re thinking, that’s not what it looks like on the map, well, you’re probably looking at the wrong one.
Telia's network connects billions of people all over the world
This is Telia Carrier’s network map, and it might just change your perception of Finland’s place in the world. It depicts the Telia Carrier Internet Backbone – one of the world’s great networks, more 65,000 kms of fiber, wrapped around the globe. If your business has a Finnish presence, connecting to our backbone taps you directly into the global Internet. That means a direct connection to leading content and service providers, tech giants, and operators alike – not to mention billions of people all over the world. It also puts you as close as you can be to all your offices, data centres, and cloud services, wherever they may be.
Finland has long been one of the world’s most connected and tech savvy countries, perfectly positioned to take advantage of everything a global backbone has to offer. And in today’s digitalized marketplace – when almost every business needs to be some form of tech business to survive – the range of companies that need backbone connectivity is rapidly growing.
Explosive unpredictable growth
It’s not just the big providers and tech giants. Carrier services are vital to datacenter and cloud providers, gaming platforms, applications providers, CDNs, mobile operators, voice providers, financial institutions, and many more. Their needs vary considerably, from IP transit to dedicated connections between datacenters and straightforward network hardware or resource management. But one common factor for all is considerable, yet unpredictable growth.
The “old” world of capacity planning meant managing bandwidth within a predictable upward trajectory. But online businesses must now find ways of managing erratic traffic peaks and bursts.
To give you an idea of what that can look like, Telia Denmark recently experiences a 3.5-fold spike in their network traffic when an episode of “Game of Thrones” was released at three o’clock in the morning… just another example of what a dragon can do. Accommodating such highly fluid network consumption patterns requires significant bandwidth – one of the great carrier advantages.
The backbone of your business
At Telia Carrier, we designed, built – and constantly refine – our network to deliver scalable, flexible services that meet all our customers’ current and future bandwidth needs. So from your presence in Finland, you can tap directly into a network that lets you scale up your capacity, not your complexity.
