The NORDUnet Network

NORDUnet operates an optical network backbone interconnecting Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam, and London. This network forms the northern extension of the GÉANT footprint, and through cross-border fibre connects to Poznan, St. Petersburg, and Tallinn.

In addition, NORDUnet operates an MPLS fabric used for IP network services and settlement-free peering. The MPLS fabric has nodes in the five Nordic capitals, in Amsterdam, London, and Frankfurt, as well as at five locations in North America. Operating an independent, international network allows NORDUnet to effectively manage cost of IP transit and at the same time offer attractive, high-quality Cloud-based services in a fully controlled network environment.

The IP network is dual stack IPv4 & IPv6.
