Arelion History & Services

Since 1993, Arelion has experienced growth by focusing primarily on acquiring and servicing wholesale customers including other global telecoms and the major content providers.  Arelion does, however, have a focused product set for business customers seeking to deploy a global internet transit based wide area network. 

The team at Macronet Services designs, sources, and implements global enterprise networks and can leverage Arelion’s services for clients whose architectures might include IP Transit, wavelengths (DWDM), Ethernet (EVPL and ELAN), and cloud connectivity to cloud service providers including Oracle, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM.  Arelion also has a network-based DDoS mitigation solution with core-based scrubbers.  Take a look at our Network Design Playbook.
