Telstra International has invested in a new low latency telecommunications route from Europe to Asia in addition to provisioning a new Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Frankfurt.

The fresh international infrastructure investment was announced at cable confab PTC in Hawaii.

The carrier said that the new international connection would meet increasing customer demand for low latency access to Asia from Europe.

The trans-Mongolian route will offer one of Europe’s shortest connections to and from Hong Kong compared, to the traditional route via the Mediterranean Sea which is currently used to connect the two regions, said Telstra International Senior Vice President for Global Carrier Services, Jim Clarke.

The new German interconnection point gives Telstra two major entry points into Europe and access to the major telecommunications hub for Eastern Europe.

Both the Frankfurt PoP and new route go live in March 2012. Telstra has around 1,400 PoPs in more than 230 countries and territories with most equipped to provide a full suite of bandwidth services and IP Services. ®
