The Dutch DATAIX Internet Exchange Network of the GlobalNet backbone provider is expanding into Northern Europe by commissioning two new points of presence in the region.
The new nodes made it possible to form a full-fledged triangle of the Stockholm-Amsterdam-Frankfurt network. Now the telecom operator provides high-speed Internet access and mutually profitable connectivity between Eastern and Western Europe for the length of 10,000 km of DWDM to any participant of the DATAIX peer-to-peer network.
“GlobalNet covers not only developed and large information hubs with a rich selection of data centers, but often exceeds the actual clients’ expectations. We decided to invest in the development of the local market by opening new PoPs in Northern Europe,” says Alex Surkoff, Director of Business Development at DATAIX.
GlobalNet has set up nodes in Copenhagen and Hamburg, aiming to provide representatives of the local telecommunications market with broadband access to the network through its own infrastructure with a length of more than 10,000 km. Regional content generators, Internet Service Providers and platforms can now enjoy uninterrupted access to a modern set of communication services: DIA, IX, IP-Transit, Capacity, DDoS Protection, etc.
“It is important for us to meet the needs of local markets. We noticed that operators located between major European telecommunications hubs often need transport to these. Local operators often had to bear additional transport costs to other cities such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Stockholm. Now the cost of services in the new PoPs is no higher than in the named cities, and the operators do not need to use additional transport by joining our network,” Alex Surkoff believes.
GlobalNet claims to be able to offer virtual network solutions for local and regional operators wishing to gain access to the peer-to-peer community without having to implement and manage their own infrastructure, as well as IP transit services for all IX members.
