Swisscom has entered a long-term partnership with SCION commercial provider Anapaya.

Swisscom, the leading telecommunications provider in Switzerland, has entered a long-term partnership with SCION commercial provider Anapaya. Swisscom is ready to offer SCION-enabled business ecosystems, which means greater network flexibility, control, and reliability, for their B2B customers.

Swisscom has long been committed to cyber security innovation and was one of the early sponsors of SCION almost a decade ago when it was still being researched and developed at ETH Zürich. As an early supporter of SCION technology, Swisscom was instrumental for SCION’s development as a viable business solution.

Today, Swisscom has entered into a long-term partnership with SCION commercial provider, Anapaya. Swisscom is now fully equipped to provide SCION-enabled business ecosystems and showcase their global backbone through the SCION network cockpit. Increased control, visibility, and internet availability will be guaranteed advantages to Swisscom’s B2B customers in Switzerland and abroad.

“We are now delivering the business benefits of SCION to our customers in the same secure way as traditional MPLS or private networks, with the flexibility and openness of the Internet as we know it today,” says Stefan Berg, Head of Product Management Wireline & Voice Enterprise Service at Swisscom.

SCION enables its users to custom-design network paths, end-to-end, across multiple carriers in the globe. This allows users to control where their confidential and valuable data travel, avoid high-risk geopolitical regions, and optimise network path selection based on availability, cost, speed, latency, and other requirements of hyper-connected multinational companies.

“The long-term partnership we solidified with Swisscom is a business growth accelerator and a testament that SCION is indeed a game-changer in the telecommunications industry,” says Anapaya CEO Martin Bosshardt.

As the first clean-slate network architecture to overcome the many limitations of the Internet as we know it today, Anapaya’s SCION is changing the way we connect to the internet for the better.
