Tampnet Carrier announces its partnership with Megaport, a leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider. The collaboration with Megaport offers Tampnet Carrier’s customers access to over 350 service providers on the Megaport platform including leading global cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and others.

Leveraging Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN), Tampnet’s customers can reach the cloud from wherever they are and easily transfer data between global locations. Customers can get direct network access to the services they need even if they are outside of a cloud onramp location or nowhere near the data centres that house major providers. Tampnet customers can now connect between metros, countries and continents, scale their business to new markets and create a seamless multi-region network.

"This is exactly what is needed in the Nordic market! With direct connection via Megaport’s network Tampnet brings all the largest cloud providers closer to the Nordic market. We can quickly and easily provision a service without the usual siloed and complex configuration tasks. We can now get you almost instantly connected to world class cloud services, managed services and data centres . Customers can move their data fast and securely in our low latency and high capacity network with many optional routes in and out of the Nordics. In addition, Megaport provides a very smart on-demand platform that offers great flexibility and scalability on a consumption based model," said Tampnet Carrier's Managing Director, Cato Lammenes.

Tampnet´s customers within the offshore oil & gas industry will now also benefit from a very flexible cloud connectivity solution, which is extremely important for the digital and green transformation of the industry. By bringing the largest cloud providers closer to their end users Tampnet supports the continuous growth of data centre deployments in the Nordics.
“We are excited by our collaboration with Tampnet, who have established a very strong business serving the offshore oil and gas sector, a unique proposition that Megaport compliments and enhances,” commented Peter Hase, Chief Commercial Officer at Megaport. “This partnership extends into this key business sector across the Nordics and supports the value-added cloud services for digital transformation and highly important research for the region. Tampnet and Megaport now extend, improve, and enhance the agile and secure cloud connectivity in the area where it was not possible before.”
