Cross Connects Link to a dynamic ecosystem of business partners, networks and carriers

Provision and scale cross connects at the speed of your business.

A cross connect is much more than a cable. It links you to our dynamic ecosystem of business partners, content providers, networks, carriers and Internet service providers.

Expand your connections through our thriving ecosystems.

  • Electronic trading exchanges run hundreds of cross connects between servers inside our IBX® data centers to maximize the number of trades processed per second and eliminate milliseconds of latency that can cost traders millions of dollars.
  • Content companies running streaming video sites use a single cross connect to link to the major international carriers and ISPs that serve their users.
  • Cloud providers reduce latency to their end-users by deploying cross connects to the networks and ISPs serving their end-users within the same building.
  • Enterprises connect their most critical applications to multiple global networks for redundancy and pricing advantages.

Whether you are a financial services company, a cloud or content provider, or an established enterprise, a cross connect inside an Equinix IBX data center ensures high-performance, network reliability, redundancy, and low-latency.
