Verizon Expands IP Reach with Equinix Data Center Partnership

Verizon on Thursday said its Private IP service will be available in Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers around the world.

The carrier says enterprise customers will have greater access to global communications solutions that are scalable, secure, reliable and high performing. These solutions meet the needs of companies in a world where cloud computing and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications are driving demand for data-center services.

"… the new alliance we have formed will provide customers of both companies the foundation to transform their businesses," said John Stratton, president, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. "Whether it is e-commerce applications, big data, media and entertainment or cloud computing, enterprises need to quickly and securely access and move information from various points around the world."

Verizon’s Private IP solution is offered in 147 countries and territories across six continents, via Verizon’s Private IP network. The company offers reporting and monitoring tools, and portals with its Private IP solution, which it says has the ability to dynamically manage and scale the network to meet the most demanding end-user needs.

Fully integrated solutions will be available by the end of 2013.

"By leveraging Verizon’s Private IP Service and Equinix data center and interconnection services, customers can count on high levels of security, reliability and performance as they grow their businesses and expand into new markets," said Equinix CEO and President Steve Smith. "This will also enable customers to use Verizon’s network to reach more than 300 cloud service providers inside Equinix data centers."

Verizon announced last month the enablement of 100GE access for its Private IP network, giving global enterprise customers faster speeds and the bandwidth necessary to adopt new technologies.
