This means that Netnod is one out of only four Internet Exchanges in the world that offers 100 GE services. The launch of the 100 GE service will allow Netnod customers to grow their Internet bandwidth available for interconnections to other Internet Service Providers. 100 GE, is the next generation of Internet transport technology and allows for a 10 times increase over the speeds available today. With the increased availability of streaming content, online video services, and gaming the future will put higher demand on interconnect bandwidth. With the 100 GE service, Netnod and Stockholm is well positioned to keep it’s leading position in being the largest interconnect point in northern Europe, bridging Scandinavia, the Baltic countries and Russia to the rest of the Internet.
Bahnhof is the first customer to sign a contract for 100 GE with Netnod.
"With the 100 GE service now available, and the first customer order we maintain being one of the largest Internet Exchange Points in the world.
