Web Hosting ServicesSTOCKHOLM – Netnod, the Swedish Internet Exchange, has installed a wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) system – a technique of sending signals of several different wavelengths of light simultaneously into fibre-optic cable – at TelecityGroup’s (LSE:TCY) carrier neutral Mariehällsvägen data centre in Stockholm. The move will lead to significantly lower prices for Netnod members that connect at the facility, enabling low-cost, high capacity peering for ISPs moving traffic across Netnod’s network infrastructure in Sweden.

Internet Exchanges such as Netnod form an essential part of the global internet infrastructure, enabling the large-scale switching of traffic between ISPs.
