Cloud Plus Carrier Ethernet Equals Success for Equinix

from www.carrierethernetnews.com:

>>Operating a Carrier Ethernet exchange out of the same data centers where it also hosts cloud providers has created some unique synergies and opportunities for Equinix. Carrier Ethernet News checked in last week with Jim Poole, Equinix general manager of Global Networks and Mobility, to discuss those opportunities.

“Many cloud companies went to market with an over-the-top delivery model over the Internet,” noted Poole. But, he added, “the reality of the corporate market is that it sits on a private, wide-area network—and increasingly that network is Ethernet-based.”
