EllaLink announced the partnership with Equinix, a global interconnection and data center company. Through this agreement, EllaLink will open three interconnections and managed colocation PoPs in Equinix data centers in Madrid, Lisbon, and São Paulo. The PoPs will be connected to the EllaLink landing site in Sines, and onwards, over two diverse terrestrial routes.
A new link between two continents
EllaLink is an advanced optical platform offering secure high capacity connectivity on a low latency transatlantic route serving the growing needs of the Latin American and European markets. This new link between Equinix’s São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon, and Madrid data centers provides direct access between these markets to support the growing interconnection needs of global customers. EllaLink will be ready for service in spring 2021.
Diego Matas, Chief Operating Officer of EllaLink, said,
“Offering one-hop connections between Latin America and Europe with a round trip delay of 60ms is a game-changer from a transatlantic latency perspective. By offering carrier-neutral connections from our PoP locations in Equinix’s data centers we are enabling our customers to directly access the rich ecosystems of networks, clouds, and financial and IT service providers that Equinix hosts.”
