The concept of an Open Exchange is to ensure carrier-neutral, policy-free exchange of traffic between any connected partner networks, thus ensuring easy, non-discriminatory interchange of communication.
NORDUnet strongly supports the Open Exchange concept. NORDUnet is connected to key open exchange points such as NetherLight (Amsterdam) and MANLAN (New York City), and established its first NORDUnet Open Exchange (NOX) point in London in 2012.
As a result of a joint public procurement with international partner Dante, NORDUnet has chosen Ciena as the provider for its next generation optical and switching network. The NORDUnet Network footprint will when fully deployed cover all of the Nordic countries with connectivity to Germany, Netherlands, UK and Belgium. The Network is being deployed during 2014 and will be fully operational by end Q3.
