Avelacom to set up a unique and superfast connection between Europe and Russia

News 15.4.2016

Cinia and a telecommunications service provider Avelacom have signed a contract to interconnect their networks. The deal will enable the Avelacom to increase their capacities, diversify routes and improve connectivity between major global markets.

Avelacom will use Cinia’s C-Lion1 cable between Finland and Germany to provide its business clients with both robust and low latency routes between Moscow and main European cities, including an even faster access to internet exchanges in London, Amsterdam and Frankfurt. C-Lion1’s capacities will also allow Avelacom to extend its portfolio of low latency offerings between Europe and Asia via Russia.

The project will be implemented in spring 2016 when Cinia’s international network to Germany including the C-Lion1 submarine connection is completed.

”The contract between Avelacom and Cinia demonstrates the significance of the new direct submarine connection between Finland and Western Europe.  Cinia is looking forward to broaden the cooperation with Avelacom in the future and to deliver more capacity services to the company and its clients,” says Cinia’s Partnership Director Jaana Räty.

”Avelacom focuses on servicing the finance and wholesale carrier services markets. Our partnership with Cinia and deployment of C-Lion1 cable will increase our capabilities to support latency-sensitive applications and meet the most sophisticated needs. Companies from other industries may also be encouraged to use alternative routes across Europe and Russia and benefit from improved connectivity,” says Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s Global Business Director.
