Verizon Extends Private IP Service to Equinix Data Centers
Verizon and Equinix Team to Offer Integrated Secure, Reliable,
High-Performance IT Solutions to Customers
NEW YORK, June 13, 2013
NEW YORK, June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon and Equinix announced on
Thursday (June 13) that Verizon's Private IP service will be available in
Equinix's International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers located in
major markets around the world. As a result, enterprise customers will gain
greater access to global communications solutions that are scalable, secure,
reliable and high performing. These solutions are necessary because the rapid
growth of cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications drive
demand for data center services.
"Verizon and Equinix are market leaders, and the new alliance we have formed
will provide customers of both companies the foundation to transform their
businesses," said John Stratton, president, Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
"Whether it is e-commerce applications, big data, media and entertainment or
cloud computing, enterprises need to quickly and securely access and move
information from various points around the world."
Verizon's Private IP solution -- which is offered in 147 countries and
territories across six continents, via Verizon's resilient Private IP network
-- is a market leader in both network quality and performance. The Private IP
network is standards based and provides end-to-end quality of service.
Verizon also offers reporting and monitoring tools and portals with its
Private IP solution, which has the ability to dynamically manage and scale the
network to meet the most demanding end-user needs.
In another significant development, Verizon recently announced enablement of
100GE access for its Private IP network, giving global enterprise customers
faster speeds and the bandwidth necessary to adopt new technologies.
"By leveraging Verizon's Private IP Service and Equinix data center and
interconnection services, customers can count on high levels of security,
reliability and performance as they grow their businesses and expand into new
markets," said Equinix CEO and President Steve Smith. "This will also enable
customers to use Verizon's network to reach more than 300 cloud service
providers inside Equinix data centers."
By offering greater access to Verizon's Private IP platform and solutions and
the Equinix data center services, both companies are striving to provide a
superior customer experience for their end users. Fully integrated solutions
will be available by the end of 2013.
