The history of the Internet is the success story of an industry self-regulatory model where technical standards are developed by those who are most involved in the Internet’s day-to-day operations; and where policy development and Internet governance take place in an open and inclusive environment.
Although Netnod is a relatively small company, I am proud to say that we have played a big role in the success story the Internet has become, and in the success stories of our customers. As we celebrate our 25 year anniversary, I think this is a good moment to look at some of our most significant contributions.
Netnod provides critical infrastructure support ranging from interconnection services and Internet Exchanges to time services, DNS services and root server operations. With a worldwide reputation for its services and the expertise of its staff, Netnod ensures a stable and secure Internet for the Nordics and beyond. Established in 1996 as a neutral and independent Internet infrastructure organisation, Netnod is fully owned by the non-profit foundation TU-stiftelsen (Stiftelsen för Telematikens utveckling).
