EdgeConneX® has announced a new partnership with PacketFabric to deploy its SDN-based platform across the EdgeConneX portfolio of Edge Data Centers® (EDCs). Initial deployments will be in the Portland, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Santa Clara EDCs.

Through this new partnership, EdgeConneX customers can now instantly provision highly scalable network connectivity between any two or more points across PacketFabric's private network. With real-time connectivity between carrier-neutral colocation facilities, PacketFabric will provide EdgeConneX customers with terabit-scale network capacity delivered in seconds utilizing the latest switching technologies and architectures.

"At EdgeConneX, it's our mission to bring advanced connectivity and services to the Edge of the network while providing customers with high-scale network capacity where it's needed," shares Clint Heiden, chief commercial officer, EdgeConneX. "This partnership will enable EdgeConneX to provide tenants with instantaneous access to PacketFabric's extensive transcontinental network."

PacketFabric's entirely automated SDN-based network delivers coast-to-coast connectivity to over 145 premier carrier-neutral colocation facilities across 17 U.S. markets via its purpose-built private backbone network. Through its innovative architecture, customers can quickly and easily procure and maintain network services in real-time, eliminating the need to deploy and manage costly infrastructure or rely on public internet access. EdgeConneX customers will also gain the opportunity to leverage PacketFabric's advanced Application Program Interface (API) for unparalleled visibility and control over their network traffic and services, ensuring consistent and reliable performance.

"At PacketFabric, we're offering customers on-demand access to reliable network connectivity with the same ease and agility with which they consume cloud services," explains William Charnock, CEO, PacketFabric. "We're excited to expand our network reach across EdgeConneX's widespread Edge Data Center ecosystem, and look forward to a productive and mutually beneficial partnership."
