Equinix has deployed Juniper Networks MX Series 3D Universal Edge Routers in 19 markets to support its Equinix Cloud Exchange.
The cloud exchange is said to be an advanced interconnection solution that enables seamless, on-demand and direct access to multiple cloud services and multiple networks across the globe.
As enterprises move more and more applications into the cloud -- often hosting them with disparate public cloud service providers -- they require a simple and central location to access and manage content.
Equinix leverages the Ethernet VPN capabilities of Juniper's MX Series routers to simplify cloud access, creating private environments between cloud providers and their customers -- both present at Equinix colocation data centers. Equinix plans to leverage Juniper's technologies to help customers address escalating demands for mobility and virtualization within enterprise networks.
Additionally, the MX Series routers provide Equinix and its customers with access to software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization architecture.
