  Deutsche Telekom Opens New IP PoP in New York

Business Wire

BONN, Germany & NEW YORK -- May 12, 2014

Today,  International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the international
wholesale division of Deutsche Telekom AG, revealed the launch of a new point
of presence (PoP) in New York.

Strategically located on the eastern coast of the United States, the New York
PoP provides worldwide connectivity to key partners in North and South
America.

As part of the core network, it completes the ICSS’s Next Generation Voice
international (NGVi) platform. The New York gateway also ensures faster and
more reliable quality for intra-American termination. It also meets the
highest technological requirements currently on the US market, since it
already runs on the Internet Protocol (IP) network standard.

Integrated IP networks are an essential element in the strategy of Deutsche
Telekom – the new IP PoP in New York and the next generation voice platform
are important contributions on the way to this objective.

Holger Magnussen, Senior Vice President Deutsche Telekom International Carrier
Sales & Solutions, says, "With the New York PoP we can now offer our clients
around the world higher voice call efficiency, quality and capability. This is
once again proof of our commitment to help our customers grow by enabling
cost-effective and reliable voice interconnect services – no matter where they
are."
