Equinix Fabric is a software-defined interconnection solution that offers access to Equinix’s vast network of 260 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres across 71 metros and 33 countries. It extends service areas by enabling remote access to services from locations without a physical presence through global virtual access points.

e& Carrier & Wholesale customers can now benefit from Equinix’s software-defined interconnection solution, Equinix Fabric, in Frankfurt and Singapore.

Similarly, Eurofiber, a leading open fibre-optic network provider, has simplified and sped-up transatlantic access to its multi-country 46,600 mile (70,500 km) European network, by launching itself on Equinix Fabric and the Connectbase marketplace.

Its customers can also now make direct end-to-end fibre connections from any Equinix IBX data centre to any DCspine-connected data centre location on demand, without physical cross-connects, via Equinix Fabric.

DCspine is a software-defined data centre interconnection platform operated by Eurofibre that connects 95+ data centres in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
