TeliaSonera International Carrier (TSIC)  announced that The Fusion Network has chosen its IP transit and connectivity services to build out its nationwide backbone. 

The Fusion Network works with top data centers, internet exchanges, content providers and large fiber owners to create a true backbone network for smaller Internet service providers (ISPs) and wireless Internet service providers (WISPs). The company has lit points of presence (POPs) in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Montana and is expected to continue to expand its network to several other states by the end of 2016. The Fusion Network’s decision to choose TSIC as their primary supplier was driven by the flexible nature of its IP and connectivity services, as well as the company’s customer-centric identity.

“By using TSIC, we can rapidly increase backbone and transit capacity and forecast the needs of our network,” said Erich Kaiser, President at The Fusion Network. “After 15 years of working with several other large carriers, I can say without hesitation that TSIC’s customer service is unsurpassed. They have gone above and beyond to help us implement our backbone in a timely manner.” 

As a member of the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), The Fusion Network’s goal is to promote the advancement and unification of the WISP industry.

“It’s our mission to allocate the proper network resources and provide uncompromising customer service in order to address customer pain points and business goals, whether they be regional, national or global” said Rob Pulkownik, Director of Market Development at TeliaSonera International Carrier. “TSIC’s success is defined by our customer centricity.”

TSIC’s 62 U.S. PoPs serve the region with mission-critical, 100G-enables Internet transit, Wavelength and Ethernet services. TSIC owns and operates the 2nd largest fiber optical backbone in the world. At the 2015 World Communication Awards (WCA) in London, TeliaSonera International Carrier was recognized for having the best customer care in the industry.
