DNA's capacity and infrastructure services ensure connections to the world through Nordic countries

The capacity and infrastructure services offered by DNA include a range of products for the needs of various companies – they can be used to meet, for example, high-capacity requirements and create connections between data centers. After DNA became part of the Norwegian Telenor group, the Nordic cooperation in the field of connections has been strengthened even further. What is the route that takes connections from Finland to the world?

"Customers of Connection and Infrastructure Services typically use latency-critical services, and service reliability of connections is very important. Customers are looking for 100% certified solutions that make the services as easy as possible and ensure that the connections work in every situation. Pioneering companies have verified their routes with various physical alternatives by land and water, and even by using the satellite routes available in the range of services," says Dominique Akl, Head of Network and Security Solutions at DNA.

DNA offers high-quality services in the backbone and local networks of Finland and the Nordic countries, as well as in selected large European cities. DNA's own comprehensive network enables safe route connections.

"DNA has its own fiber network and sea cables in Finland. The connections offer a fast route from Finland to the rest of the Nordic countries. Correspondingly, there is a fast and safe land route available for connections between Finland and Sweden. In addition, Telenor has an almost 200,000 kilometers of optic fiber network in the Nordic countries, which also is constantly expanded," says Assi Oikari, DNA Wholesale's Director.

Cooperation with Telenor has also significantly strengthened DNA’s capacity and infrastructure services.

"Telenor has a very strong network and coverage in Sweden, not forgetting the other Nordic countries. Now customers can expand their connections from Finland to the world even more nimbly. The importance of Nordic cooperation cannot be overemphasized in this context," says Joakim Andersson, Head of Wholesale at Telenor Sweden.

The operational reliability of the networks is of primary importance for customers. Currently, there are three separate connection routes between Finland and Sweden: two sea cables and a land route, which are 100% owned by DNA. In addition, for the most critical operators, DNA can offer backup satellite connections based on satellites owned, managed and operated by Telenor.

"At the moment, all kinds of things are happening in the world, so security of supply must be on a solid foundation. Protecting marine cables from damage and repairing them are challenging tasks. That's why the land route from Finland to Sweden is excellent for connections in terms of verification," explains Andersson.

Most typically, international connections are needed between data centers. If a company needs connections from Finland to Norway or from Denmark to Finland, DNA and Telenor can easily make this happen.

Akl, Oikari and Andersson notes that every customer's needs are different. This is taken into account from the first discussions, when it can be guaranteed that everything including the network design suits the customer's needs.
