France Telecomís subsidiary GlobeCast has expanded its next-generation global fibre network with the opening of a new point-of-presence in Moscow. The company has also signed new Russian TV channel Strana, launced on November 2, as its first customer for the new link.
The distribution and capacity deal allows Strana to reach Pay TV (IPTV, DTH and cable) platforms across Russia and Europe. The channel will be delivered from Moscow to Paris for uplink to HotBird via the new POP.
Moscow POP is the latest addition to the network that is part of GlobeCastís ongoing expansion into fibre and satellite connectivity.
