STOCKHOLM -- The Swedish Internet Exchange (Netnod) has significantly reduced customer costs by deploying an optical networking solution from Transmode, a leading provider of Optical Networking Solutions.

ISPs in Sweden are able to interconnect securely via Netnod as it provides the National Internet Exchange-points across the country. The five exchange points are housed in underground bunkers in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Sundsvall, Luleå and Malmö. These bunkers were originally built by the Swedish Government to house critical telecommunications infrastructure. Netnod has deployed the Transmode TM-Series in order to increase the capacity and reliability but mainly to reduce its costs.

"Not only have we significantly reduced the number of fibers we connect to, as well as our costs, but we have also been able to significantly increase the capacity of the network. The Transmode installation has directly led to an increase in the number of our ISP customers," said Netnod's CEO Kurt-Erik Lindqvist.
