New interconnection service from Netnod and NIX will transform peering in the region
The VLAN peering solution enables customers at NIX to connect to any of the Netnod Internet Exchanges (IXes) in the Nordics and vice-versa. Using Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) connections means that, with no extra cross-connection or equipment needed, networks can now peer throughout the region at a fraction of the previous cost. For any network with a presence at NIX, it will be simple and extremely cost-effective to order a VLAN connection to any Netnod IX, including the Netnod IX Stockholm, the largest Internet Exchange in the Nordics. This opens up peering in the region enabling networks to expand their presence and peer with some of the largest ISPs, telcos and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) in the world.
“We are pleased that through close cooperation with NIX we are able to give our customers even more choice of how they connect and exchange traffic,” said Lars Michael Jogbäck, Netnod CEO. “Whatever your network setup and wherever you are located, the new IX VLAN peering service enables networks in Norway and throughout the Nordics to become better interconnected than ever before.”
"Since 2015, Netnod and NIX have cooperated closely for a better Internet in the region,” said Kjetil Otter Olsen, NIX CEO. “This new service will make it easier for Norwegian networks to get better connectivity both regionally and globally, and will also enable better connectivity to Norway for all networks connected to Netnod.”
Netnod has also announced the launch of a point-to-point transport service allowing networks with a presence in Norway to establish private interconnections more effectively than ever before. Enabling interconnections across optical, physical and data link layers within Oslo, the Metro Access service provides private interconnects at 10G or 100G. Without the need for hardware and additional costs, Metro Access provides the most cost-effective and reliable point-to-point transport available and offers a cheaper alternative to dark fibre. A long-distance version of the service, Netnod WDM Transport, enables networks in Norway to establish regional interconnections. With on-net locations at major data centres in the region, and a fully provisioned service for local access, Netnod’s WDM Transport provides a fully managed transport solution for networks in the Nordics.
