PacketFabric NaaS: Built for Network Agility

Data Center Interconnection has long been a core aspect of enterprise WANs, yet is undergoing a significant evolution due to the need for greater business agility driven by digital and cloud transformation. DCI technology and consumption models have evolved beyond inflexible, long-term wavelength and Ethernet service contracts.

State-of-the-art interconnectivity between public cloud and private cloud data centers is an agile, API-driven network infrastructure service. Agile DCI solutions offer the scalability, high-performance, low latency, and high capacity bandwidth of private optical networking, but with the speed of provisioning and consumption flexibility of a cloud provider SDN.

Agility defines how PacketFabric built its carrier-class Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform from the ground up. At both the photonic DWDM layer and the Layer 2/3 routing/switching layer, the PacketFabric is wholly driven by API automation that enables on-demand provisioning and elastic consumption at monthly or longer terms with predictable pricing from metro to long-haul. Furthermore, the PacketFabric platform allows enterprises to provision up to 4K EVPL connections on-demand from a single 1G/10G/40G/100G port. The modular use of each port enables flexible network design for DCI applications, including disaster recovery and business continuity scenarios.

This agility of the PacketFabric NaaS gives enterprises the ability to design and deploy connectivity for their cloud ecosystem optimally and respond to changing business needs.

Expand Your Reach

Our network’s global presence enables you to expand the reach of your business. Connect with ease between hundreds of colocation facilities around the world, and to cloud, IX and SaaS providers.

The Rise of the Enterprise Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Core

Enterprises are rapidly shifting applications to hyperscale cloud service providers (CSPs) like AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and SaaS such as Salesforce and Cisco Webex. At the same time, many organizations have applications and services, and related compute resources that must stay “on-premises” for the foreseeable future due to security, privacy, or regulatory reasons. As a result, colocation providers and colo data center operators have become a critical anchor point of many organizations’ hybrid and multi-cloud architectures. In addition, with so many organizations building digital business operations, the ability to connect from data centers to Internet Exchange providers is an essential DCI use case.
