A description of the Planck Collaboration and a list of its members can be found at http://www.rssd.esa.int/index.php?project=PLANCK&page=Planck_Collaboration. This paper makes use of observations obtained at the Very Large Array (VLA) which is an instrument of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). The NRAO is a facility of the National Science Foundation operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc. This research also makes use of observations with the 100 m telescope of the Max Planck Institut fur Radioastronomie (MPIfR), the 30 m telescope of Institut de Radioastronomie Millimetrique (IRAM), the Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) and the 13.7 m telescope of the Metsahovi Radio Observatory. The Mets hovi observing project is supported by the Academy of Finland (grant numbers 212656, 210338 and 121148). We acknowledge the use of the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
