Tampnet Launches New Stockholm/Amsterdam Route

September 19th, 2022 by · Leave a Comment

Tampnet Carrier has officially launched a new express fiber route between the Nordic region and western Europe. By leveraging its unique subsea footprint, the company has developed a uniquely diverse, low latency route between Stockholm and Amsterdam, something they talked about in this interview here on Telecom Ramblings last year.

The route passes through Denmark via the capital Copenhagen and the landing station at Esbjerg. From Esbjerg they are leveraging a subsea route over to the Netherlands that leverages the COBRA cable, a power cable operated by Energinet, entering Amsterdam from the north and bypassing Hamburg and other choke points.

The new 10Tbps route offers 8.16m RTD latency between Stockholm and Copenhagen, and 17.22ms RTD latency for the full route between Stockholm and Amsterdam. The combined route Stockholm-London has an RTD latency of 22.1ms. 

Tampnet Carrier’s assets include various subsea assets connecting to and through platforms in the North Sea, offering unique bypass opportunities when compared to the traditional mostly land routes, for which there has never been much diversity.
