Netnod is the largest Internet exchange point (IXP) in the Nordics. It is also one of the oldest IXPs in Europe. Netnod is a non-profit, neutral and independent operator of exchange points in five different cities in Sweden and Denmark. Netnod operates IXPs in Stockholm, Copenhagen-Malmö (COMIX), Gothenburg, Sundsvall and Luleå. The Netnod IXPs are a layer 2 service, built on Gigabit Ethernet (GE) technology.
Netnod offers connections as either 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps or 100 Gbps Ethernet. The IXPs in the different cities are not interconnected.

Netnod IX enables traffic exchange between Internet operators through its robust and reliable IXP infrastructure. By exchanging traffic directly between themselves at the IXP, operators can reduce cost as well as improve speed, latency, and redundancy in their interconnections. It also gives the operator better control of their routing.
