About Netnod

Netnod is a non-profit, neutral and independent Internet infrastructure organisation based in Sweden. Netnod is owned by the foundation TU-stiftelsen (Stiftelsen för Telematikens utveckling). 

Netnod operates five Internet exchange points (IXPs) in Sweden and one in Denmark, where Internet operators can connect and exchange traffic (peer). The Netnod IX has among the highest amount of traffic per peer in Europe and is fully IPv6 enabled.

Netnod also manages a variety of DNS services. Netnod provides anycast and unicast slave service to TLDs and select partners worldwide through its highly respected DNSNODE product. 

Netnod is also the proud operator of i.root-servers.net, one of the 13 logical DNS root name servers in the world. This service is provided as a public service to the Internet community at-large, as part of Netnods goal to work for the Good of the Internet.

At the Netnod IXPs, Netnod provides a variety of value adding services such as the RIPE Internet Routing Registry (IRR), Bredbandskollen (a consumer broadband speed test), slave services for several DNS TLDs, the DNS root server i.root-servers.net, as well as distribution of official Swedish time through NTP. These services are provided as part of Netnod's AS number AS8674. 

(Some of the services above were previously offered through “Autonomica”, but in 2010, Autonomica merged with Netnod, leaving the company with the single name Netnod.)
