Technical information on Netnod IXP's

Netnod operates route servers at the Stockholm IX as well as the Copenhagen exchange point (Copenhagen-Malmö). A route server facilitates the administration of peering arrangements for networks present at an exchange point. By connecting to the route server, you can replace some or all of your separate BGP sessions to your peers, with one single session towards the route server.

Here are example configurations that illustrates a router connected to both of the VLANs on the STH-B switch. The VLAN ids will be different for other Netnod IX's. The examples are only examples and will most likely need to be adopted to your environment and platform.

This is the list of colocation providers in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Malmo and Gothenburg.
