NORDUnet expands its Open eXchange Point presence introducing NOX-HEL

NORDUnet expands its Open eXchange Point presence introducing NOX-HEL

NOX HEL map

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.

Now NORDUnet expands NOX, introducing a new Open Exchange Point in Helsinki (NOX-HEL) to support exchange of communications between partners in Northern Europe, the Baltic region, and Russia.

In line with other Open Exchange Points NOX–HEL will offer 10GE and 100GE connectivity, allowing both R&E networks and commercial service providers to interconnect at their discretion, with no AUP imposed by NORDUnet or NOX.

NORDUnet can offer connectivity between NOX-HEL and a number of other European Open Exchange Points, including other NOX nodes, for our R&E Network partners.

Further NOX locations are in the planning phase and will be established in the future.
