Telia Carrier becomes Netnod Reach partner

New partnership enables Telia Carrier customers to remote peer across the Nordics

Stockholm 12 May 2020 - Telia Carrier, operating the world’s No. 1 ranked Internet backbone, has partnered with Netnod, the leading provider of interconnection services in the Nordics, to provide customers with remote peering connections. As a Netnod Reach partner, Telia Carrier can connect customers from any point in its global network enabling remote peering at Netnod IXes throughout the Nordics.  

“We are delighted to be partnering with Telia Carrier to give customers even more choice of how they connect and exchange traffic,” said LM Jogbäck, Netnod CEO. “As ever, our goal is to scale with customers’ needs, help grow their networks and offer the most flexible and competitively priced services available.”

Netnod Reach gives networks the full benefits of peering at a fraction of the normal cost. By connecting through Telia Carrier, customers will be able to connect from any point in Telia Carrier’s global network to peer at any Netnod IX. With no extra hardware or colocation costs, and peering opportunities with some of the largest ISPs and CDNs in the world, this is the most cost effective way to peer remotely and access almost 200 networks exchanging more than 2Tbps of traffic in the Nordics. 

“Telia Carrier are delighted to partner with Netnod to offer our global customers a high-quality, cost-effective way to remotely set up new peering relationships at the major Nordic Internet Exchanges using our IX Connect solution”, said Bernd Hoogkamp, Manager Products at Telia Carrier.
