Telia International Carrier (Telia IC) has signed an agreement to deliver global IP-transit to NORDUnet, the Nordic Internet highway to research and education networks in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
The agreement will make it possible for NORDUnet to send global IP-transit via the Viking Network, Telia International Carrier´s infrastructure for Internet Access.
- We are very pleased with Telia's ability to provide IP transit service to NORDUnet with short notice, says Peter Villemoes, General Manager NORDUnet. It will assure continuity of NORDUnet's services.
Telia International Carrier has provided NORDUnet with a Nordic backbone during the last 3 years. Over time the net has been upgraded to a high-tech network of 2.5 Gbit. Telia also supplies capacity to the project 6NET that NORDUnet currently develops.
- Our continued relation with NORDUnet verifies once again that Telia ICs financial strength and quality in delivery is what the market prioritises, says Erik Heilborn, President Telia International Carrier.
