Finnish connectivity provider Cinia said it has signed a contract with Russian telecommunications company Avelacom to interconnect their networks.  Avelacom will use Cinia’s C-Lion1 cable between Finland and Germany to provide clients with both robust and low latency routes between Moscow and the main European cities, including an even faster access to internet exchanges in London, Amsterdam and Frankfurt. The project will be implemented in spring 2016 when Cinia’s international network to Germany, including the C-Lion1 submarine connection, is completed.

Aleksey Larichev, Avelacom’s global business director, said Avelacom focuses on servicing the finance and wholesale carrier services markets. The partnership with Cinia and deployment of the C-Lion1 cable will increase Avelacom’s capabilities to support latency-sensitive applications.

Cinia Group has over 10,000 km of its own backbone networks and is building international connectivity and sea cables connecting East and West. With over 200 own professionals, it designs, build and operates nationally critical systems in open system environment serving many major traffic and energy distribution operators.
