Shaped port

Shaped Ports
Shaped ports enable you to connect to a 10GE, 100G or 400GE 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.

How does it work?

When signing up for a port, simply specify that you would like a shaped port, the physical port size (10GE, 100GE or 400GE) and the starting capacity that you need. We will connect you to the port and restrict it to the ordered capacity. You will only pay for the capacity that you need. If you need more capacity, it is quick and easy to upgrade.

The minimum starting capacity for shaped ports is as follows:

  • 10GE - 1Gbps
  • 100GE - 20Gbps
  • 400GE - 100Gbps
