About our partnership with Arelion

Network & Cloud Solutions


Arelion, formerly Telia Carrier, is owned by Polhem Infra, a Swedish investment company backed by some of the largest Swedish public pension funds. We started building our network in 1993, when our Autonomous System, AS1299, was allocated, and we’ve grown organically ever since. Our network now stretches 70,000 kms across Europe, North America and Asia and lets you connect directly to more than 2,300 wholesale customers in more than 125 countries. With more than 450 local access partners around the world, we are the backbone of your business, wherever you are.

Arelion has moved Carrier-Ethernet forward to a new era of business-defined networking. Our services add value to a timeless and highly-resilient technology with their flexible deployment options. AS1299 represents the #1 in North America and Globally by DYN Renesys.

GUARANTEED BANDWIDTH: Uncontended bandwidth, 100% dedicated to you.

DDOS Mitigation: We provide a high-capacity solution throughout our global IP backbone that can be scaled to add more Managed Objects (MOs) and mitigation capacity to support our customers growing protection needs.

PRECISION: Our service applies surgical mitigation techniques to mitigate attacks automatically. Malicious traffic is already dropped within our backbone before it reaches our customers’ Internet connections, passing through only legitimate traffic.

BACKBONE STRENGTH: We have deployed advanced mitigation techniques with BGP flowspec, providing more granular control to handle traffic on our global backbone, which connects 60% of global Internet routes. As a result, we have a more dynamic way of protecting our backbone and, consequently, our customers
against large-scale volumetric DDoS attacks.

We provide mitigation against evolving attack vectors:

• Volumetric
• Protocol
• Application

We apply a Four-Tier Mitigation Model to offer complete protection from DDoS attacks.

1. Tier-1 Malicious Ingress Traffic Marking and Policing (Infrastructure protection)

2. Tier-2 RTBH Technique

3. Tier-3 ACL Port Level Service

4. Tier-4 DDoS Protection DDOS MITIGATION Traffic Marking rtbh ACL 1 2 3 4 DDoS

Waves 1G, 10G, 40G, 100G and 400G on specific routes.

HIGH-CAPACITY: Leverage our investments in optical fiber to significantly reduce your costs of building a fiber-optic network.

Ethernet Private Line, ELAN, EVPL
