ISPs in Sweden are able to interconnect securely via Netnod as it provides the National Internet Exchange-points across the country. The five exchange points are housed in underground bunkers in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Sundsvall, Luleå, and Malmö. These bunkers were originally built by the Swedish Government to house critical telecommunications infrastructure.

"Not only have we significantly reduced the number of fibers we connect to, as well as our costs, but we have also been able to significantly increase the capacity of the network. The Transmode installation has directly led to an increase in the number of our ISP customers," said Netnod's CEO Kurt-Erik Lindqvist.

"Having decided we needed a WDM solution, we sent an RFP to seven telecommunications vendors, and after an exhaustive selection process we chose the Transmode TM-Series," added Lindqvist. "Only two companies could meet our specification due to our particular network requirements. We selected Transmode on price and the ability to meet our delivery times."
