Shaped port

Shaped ports enable you to connect to a 100G port but to only use the capacity that you need. This means that once you have set up the connection, you only pay for what you require. As your needs evolve, you can easily upgrade. No need for extra cross connects, configuration or unusual optics. Just the capacity you need, when you need it. Shaped ports are available at all Netnod Internet Exchanges. Starting at 20G or 50G you can use your shaped port to easily upgrade in 10G increments.

How does it work?

When signing up for a port, simply specify that you would like a shaped port (starting at either 20G or 50G). We will connect you to a 100G port as if you were a 100G customer and we will restrict it to the ordered capacity. You will only pay for the capacity that you need. If you need to upgrade, it is quick and easy to upgrade in 10G increments.
