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.
