Stockholm, 10 December 2018 - Netnod, the leading Internet exchange in the Nordics, and Conapto, the gateway to the Cloud, today announced a collaboration that extends Netnod’s infrastructure to Conapto’s Stockholm data centres.

The agreement will enable Conapto customers to reduce latency and transit costs by peering directly at the Netnod Stockholm Internet Exchange (IX). 

Netnod’s exchange point in Stockholm is the largest in the Nordics and offers the highest traffic per peer in Europe. With 100% uptime since 2002, the exchange point provides the best possible access to the Nordics, the Baltics and the Russian market.

Netnod offers customers a quick set up for their interconnections, high volume discounts for additional ports and the most flexible connection options available in the Nordics. 

“It’s important that Netnod can be reached where our customers are located. It should be easy to connect to our exchange points. With Conapto as an ‘On Net’ connection option, Conapto’s customers can easily and cost effectively get a redundant, secure and stable connection to Netnod”, said Lars Michael Jogbäck, Netnod CEO. 

Customers from Netnod and Conapto will exchange traffic directly over dedicated fibre connections linking Netnod's Stockholm Internet exchange to Conapto’s data centres.
