EQUINIX TO BRING 2.4TBPS OF CAPACITY TO FINLAND INTERNET EXCHANGE
Equinix will help increase internet connectivity for Finnish businesses from Q1 2017 with the launch of an internet exchange (IX) in Helsinki.
By bringing the Equinix IX with 2.4Tbps of capacity to Finland, companies that are located in the Nordics will be able to more easily consume or sell their services seamlessly to the rest of Europe and abroad.
“The growth and rapid evolution of the digital economy demands ever-increasing levels of network performance and capacity,” said Eric Schwartz, EMEA president at Equinix.
“Equinix will help address this challenge by opening the Equinix Internet Exchange in Helsinki, which will build on the success we’ve had developing internet exchanges in Zurich and Paris. This, combined with the power of Platform Equinix, will enable businesses in Finland to meet their global digital transformation objectives and optimize digital relationships.”
Equinix currently operates six data centres in Finland, all in the Helsinki metropolitan area, which offer campus and metro-wide connectivity, providing customers with the full range of interconnection options – buying transit from an ISP, using Equinix IX for public peering, or peering privately over cross connects.
