    Bulk Fiber Networks lands HAVSIL Nordic fibre network


    And Digita signs LoRaWAN roaming agreement with Netmore

    Finnish infrastructure operator Digita has announced a roaming agreement with Swedish IoT firm Netmore for their respective LoRaWAN systems. Netmore’s Swedish and international customers will have access to Digita’s nationwide network in Finland. Digita can offer Netmore’s geographical LoRaWAN coverage in Sweden, the UK and Ireland.

    Meanwhile, in other infrastructure news Bulk Fiber Networks (BFN) has signed an agreement for a terrestrial segment of HAVSIL Nordic fibre network. The divNerse route is the shortest available that connects Norway with continental Europe, says BFN.

    Nordic fibre-optic network service provider Bulk Fiber Networks says it has finished the terrestrial segment of its new HAVSIL fibre network. The diverse route, which Bulk claims is the shortest available connection between Norway and continental Europe, is ready for service.

    HAVSIL comprises 192 fibre links that connect from Bulk’s N01 Campus in Kristiansand, Norway to its DK01 Campus in Esbjerg, Denmark. The terrestrial segment complements a subsea segment from Kristiansand to Hanstholm.

    The land leg of the connection goes to Esbjer and the fibre then turns and runs along the west coast of Denmark. Creating that route involved drilling 40 metres under the seabed of the Thyborøn Canal. The drill hole is 1950 metres, which Bulk says is longer than any project like this in Denmark.

    The new fibre network already has Arelion (formerly known as Telia Carrier Networks) as an anchor customer and it will be the first to use the network. The Norwegian Communications Authority has also selected HAVSIL as the new secure fibre system for the nation’s international data traffic.

    “The HAVSIL system is the new express route between Norway and continental Europe, offering the shortest high-capacity route in a sustainable way,” said Inger Gløersen Folkeson, executive vice president, fiber networks and COO of Bulk Infrastructure Group. “Bulk continues to invest in high-value connectivity options needed by OTT networks, hyperscalers, enterprises and carriers to meet increasing data growth and to unlock the business potential of the Nordics.”
