DE-CIX and Netnod to sell interconnection services
DE-CIX and the largest IX provider in the Nordics, Netnod are to sell each other’s interconnection services as part of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the two.
The first step of the MoU, announced on 14 May, is to include the direct interconnection of DE-CIX Frankfurt, and the Stockholm-based Netnod IX via GlobePEER Remote and Netnod’s Remote IX service.
Following this, both companies will sell each other’s interconnection services, with reseller activity across all their combined geographic markets.
The two said their new partnership was planned to be extended to other Netnod IXs in the Nordics in due course, expanding DE-CIX’s global interconnection ecosystem to the highly digitally-mature Northern European region and vice versa.
DE-CIX has had a busy year to date, not only due to heightened internet traffic.
DE-CIX interconnection services were made available in St Petersburg in January and in March, DE-CIX established an interconnection peering point of presence (PoP) at NJFX and revealed that its goal is to make Latin America one of the focus regions for networks to be connected via NJFX to DE-CIX New York.
