In a recent release, GTT Communications, a cloud networking provider, has announced the upgrade of its fiber network spanning Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The network upgrade and additional high capacity fiber routes enhance the diversity, scalability and performance of GTT’s Tier 1 global IP network footprint for its enterprise and carrier clients in the CEE region.

GTT is upgrading its routes between its network points of presence in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Turkey, adding a diverse, lower-latency route from Budapest to Sofia. GTT deployed next-generation optical technology along the routes, doubling the available optical capacity per fiber in the initial upgrade, with the ability to add capacity to align with client demand.

“GTT is delivering on its purpose of connecting people across organizations, around the world and to every application in the cloud,” stated Rick Calder, president and CEO, GTT. “Central and Eastern Europe is a significant market for GTT, and this network upgrade results in an even stronger set of cloud networking services for our clients.”
