DE-CIX Expands to the Nordics: New IXs for Norway, Denmark, and Finland

Internet Exchange operator DE-CIX, one of the world’s largest providers of IX services and home to a large carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem, has expanded its offerings to the Nordic region. In partnership with Bulk Data Centers, DE-CIX will be opening IX platforms in Norway, Denmark, and Finland.

The extension of the Internet Exchange operator to Norway, Denmark, and Finland is aimed at meeting regional connectivity demands, which will be aided by new transatlantic and intercontinental underwater cables connecting the Nordics to North America and Asia.

DE-CIX will fully integrate the Nordic Internet Exchanges into its existing carrier and data center neutral interconnection ecosystem – one of the largest of its kind in not only Central and Southern Europe, with over 10 IXs (2100+ connected networks), but also North America, with 5 IXs (400+ connected networks). The DE-CIX interconnection platforms will be available in the Bulk colocation data centers in Oslo (OS-IX) and Kristiansand (Campus N01) (Norway), as well as Esbjerg (Campus DK01) (Denmark).

“The Nordic region comprises some of the world’s most highly developed digital markets. However, the interconnection infrastructure available in the region does not match the digital maturity of the economy in the Nordics,” said Ivo Ivanov, CEO of DE-CIX International. “The region has seen significant growth in data center investments for the concentration of hosting, storage and cloud deployments, and a high concentration of enterprises and manufacturing presence. It is important for the related interconnection infrastructure to get closer to these investments, to serve the connectivity demands. DE-CIX has seen strong support from the Nordic data center community for our plans to expand to the region, in which we will localize our interconnection capabilities for these markets, at the same time as integrating them into the DE-CIX European and trans-continental interconnection ecosystem.”
