Netnod Optical IX Service

Netnod Optical IX Service
Netnod’s new Optical IX service optimises interconnections between data centres and other networks using industry-leading technology. The new service was announced during Netnod Spring Meeting 2017 and will be available at Netnod IX Copenhagen (formerly COMIX) starting Q3 and Netnod IX Stockholm during Q4.

The new Optical IX service will offer customers the choice of interconnecting across all layers of Netnod's IX infrastructure (pure optical layer, physical layer and data link layer). Customers will be able to connect through Netnod as a one-stop shop and select the connection that best fits their needs. They will be able to purchase private data centre interconnections with full redundancy as an option across all connection layers. For operators and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) this will offer significantly quicker, cheaper and more effectively managed interconnections. With optical routes, automatic restoration, built-in redundancy and a simple web portal for managing traffic, interconnections in the region will become more efficient than ever before.
