“This is exactly what is needed in the Nordic market”, says Tampnet Carrier’s Managing Director, Cato Lammenes. “With direct connection via Megaport’s network Tampnet brings all the largest cloud providers closer to the Nordic market. We can quickly and easily provision a service without the usual siloed and complex configuration tasks. We can now get you almost instantly connected to world class cloud services, managed services and data centres . Customers can move their data fast and securely in our low latency and high capacity network with many optional routes in and out of the Nordics. In addition, Megaport provides a very smart on-demand platform that offers great flexibility and scalability on a consumption based model,” Lammenes points out.
