Stockholm 9 March 2017 - Portlane (AS42708) has joined the Netnod Reach partner program to provide remote peering in Sweden. As an official Netnod Reach partner, Portlane can engage clients at any point of presence on its network and resell peering ports to Sweden’s leading Internet Exchange.

This is the first time a Netnod reach partner is primarily targeting the local Swedish market – thus making it easier for local operators and providers to connect to one of Netnod’s exchange points around Sweden. This will create more stable, redundant and cost-effective Internet connections that ultimately benefits everyone. 

- Netnod welcomes Portlane as our first Swedish partner for Netnod Reach. We look forward to having Portlane’s flexible solution as part of our partner network enabling additional types of customers to connect to our Internet Exchange Points in Sweden, says LM Jogbäck, Netnod CEO.

Portlane has a vast network covering Northern Europe, as well as state-of-the-art datacentres on both the east and west coast of Sweden. Netnod Reach partner programme with Portlane is as from now live.

- This is one of several steps we are making in 2017 to strengthen our position as a leading supplier of Nordic connectivity. Becoming the first Netnod Reach partner in the Nordics allows us to help both our existing and new customers to increase their connectivity in the Nordic region by utilizing Netnod peering services, says Christopher Segerberg, Portlane AB.

Netnod Reach gives you the full benefits of peering at a fraction of the cost. You connect through your existing provider, using their equipment and Netnod’s infrastructure to peer.
