Netnod Optical IX Service

Netnod Optical IX Service
Netnod’s new Optical IX service is designed to optimise point-to-point interconnections between data centres and other networks. It offers quicker, cheaper and more effectively managed connections and enables customers to use Netnod as a one-stop shop for all their interconnection needs in the region.

The Optical IX service will launch at the Netnod Copenhagen IX (formerly COMIX) in Q3, 2017, and at the Stockholm IX in Q4.

The new Optical IX service enables you to:

  • interconnect across the layers of Netnod's IX infrastructure (pure optical layer, physical layer and data link layer) with full redundancy across all layers as an option
  • set up private data centre interconnections quickly and cost-effectively
  • control your traffic, optimise your routes and stay ahead of problems with 24/7 fault monitoring 
  • save time and money by interconnecting without buying fibre and transmission equipment
  • connect quickly through Netnod as a one-stop shop with a single contract and 24/7 support

Built with industry-leading components from ADVA Optical Networking and Arista, Netnod’s next generation, 100G optical platform uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver high-availability interconnection across all network layers. The optical layer is programmable enabling on net locations to be connected quickly and without the need for physical patching.

For any organisation looking to interconnect in Stockholm and Copenhagen, Netnod has the scale, the infrastructure and the experience to set up your connection in the most efficient and cost-effective way. With optical routes, automatic restoration, and built-in redundancy, Netnod’s Optical IX service takes interconnection in the Nordics to the next level.

Root server operators are often asked to comment on reports about the performance and quality of the DNS root server system. In an effort to improve research in this field, the root server operators have published a guide that outlines some principles for interpreting DNS related data sets.
