RETN becomes Netnod Reach Partner
RETN has joined the Netnod Reach partner program to provide remote peering in Sweden to its many corporate and carrier customers from around the globe. As an official Netnod Reach partner, RETN can engage clients at any point of presence on its network and resell peering ports to Sweden’s leading Internet Exchange.
“Initially we were active in the Russian and Eastern European markets, but extended our network to Western Europe, North America and Asia in line with our customer’s requirements.
The benefits of peering become ever more obvious to all customers and RETN is committed to making the peering process seamless and hassle free for them. Having joined the Netnod Reach partner programme, we can now allow our existing and potential customers to access the benefits of peering at Netnod without the hassle of setting up a point of presence in Sweden,” says Tony O’Sullivan, Director of RETN Ltd.
“We are very pleased and proud to partner up with RETN and its extensive network across Eastern Europe and Russia. There is a strong demand to connect to Netnod from those regions and the Netnod Reach program allows networks to do so in a simple and quick manner. RETN has a strong record of stability and technical competence, and we’re confident that the partnership will be a successful one. Netnod Reach is an easy, fast and cost-effective way to peer in Stockholm without the overhead of a full IXP commitment allowing you to test the waters with the visibility and technical benefits of a fully peering customer,” says Kurt Erik Lindqvist, CEO of Netnod.
