Last year PacketFabric added storage to its service offering, thereby expanding the use cases it’s able to offer the Media and Entertainment industry. In 2022, we’ll grow storage capacity at the edge, but the network’s expansion in the vertical is also geographic.
Production tax incentives continue to be offered globally, and the workforces for broadcast, TV and film continue to decentralize due to the proliferation of streaming and impact of Covid on a remote workforce. Accordingly, PacketFabric is building out its points of presence to accommodate all regions with greater production activity.
Companies connected to these PoPs can provision a port on the PacketFabric network. Workflows previously limited by the public internet can be connected to the cloud privately, within moments, while companies take advantage of a flexible pricing model, befitting the shorter term, higher bandwidth and security requirements of studios and productions.
In cases wherein companies favor having access to carriers on-site, PacketFabric is able to establish Points of Presence on-campus through a special build process.
As of today, just a few of the notable M&E Points of Presence include:
This location offers not only instant network connectivity, but also, immediate access to Cyxtera’s entire partner ecosystem, where companies can find the compute, storage, and networking solutions they need to build their complete data center environment.

Culver City Fiber
All companies in the area can take advantage of a more direct path to the network with our unique Culver City fiber ring.
Nant Studios, Culver City and El Segundo
This is an example of a strategic on-campus build, enabling productions to purchase cloud connectivity and access to data center services while utilizing the studio – a useful capability, especially with growing adoption of Virtual Production and its larger data sets.
