Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS), the wholesale arm of Deutsche Telekom AG, has joined the Equinix Ethernet Exchange in order to better serve the increasing demand for Ethernet traffic. Deutsche Telekom has now automatic access to Platform Equinix™ and a 4,000-strong global ecosystem of networks, enterprises, cloud and content service providers. This agreement also expands the depth and reach of carrier Ethernet services available through the Equinix Ethernet Exchange to connect to millions of locations within Deutsche Telekom’s strong on-net coverage in Western, Central and Eastern Europe (including Germany).
Launched in 2010, the Equinix Ethernet Exchange now has more than 58 members providing access to many millions of service locations in approximately 100 countries. It enables service providers, cloud and SaaS providers and their customers to build elastic end-to-end SLA-based services across a global Layer 2 Ethernet footprint, with faster provisioning time and scalable bandwidth. It also provides revenue opportunities via direct interconnectivity with a global ecosystem of partners and customers, including 690 network service providers, all securely co-located in Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers.
To accelerate sales and supplier selection, all members have access to the Equinix Marketplace™, a user-friendly online portal where they can advertise their services and where prospective Ethernet partners and customers can search for suppliers by relevant geography and more.
“With our extensive Ethernet portfolio we are well positioned to cope with the drastically increasing Ethernet demand of the industry. Connecting to Equinix’s Ethernet Exchange provides us with an innovative platform that extends our and our customers’ reach at affordable cost,” said Holger Magnussen, senior vice president, International Carrier Sales & Solutions at Deutsche Telekom. “With our dense coverage of Ethernet services, we can now serve a mature ecosystem of prospects with pre-tested marketing and sales channels in the shape of the Equinix Marketplace, through this Exchange.”
