Data center and colocation provider Equinix deploys a new Nokia IP/MPLS network infrastructure to support its global interconnection services. With the new network, Equinix will be able to consolidate into one, efficient webscale infrastructure to provide FP4-powered connectivity to all data centers.
For easing the 5G transformations
As 5G rollouts continue, Equinix now can deliver all of its interconnection services worldwide, saving its customers money, streamlining their operations, and easing their 5G transformations.
Muhammad Durrani, Director of IP Architecture for Equinix, said,
“We see tremendous opportunity in providing our customers with 5G services, but this poses special demands for our network, from ultra-low latency to ultra-broadband performance, all with business- and mission-critical reliability. Nokia’s end-to-end router portfolio will provide us with the highly dynamic and programmable network fabric we need, and we are pleased to have the support of the Nokia team every step of the way.”
Nokia’s FP4 chipset is a network processor for high-performance routing, setting the bar for density and scale. Paired with Nokia’s Service Router Operating System (SR OS) software, it will enable Equinix to offer additional capabilities driven by routing technologies like Ethernet VPNs (EVPNs) and segment routing (SR).
