PacketFabric Expands Network Connectivity On-Demand to Switch Data Centers

PacketFabric, the highly scalable Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform and member of the NantWorks ecosystem of companies, recently announced it has expanded its network to Switch (NYSE: SWCH), the global technology infrastructure corporation that develops hyperscale data center ecosystems for elite colocation, enterprise hybrid cloud and connectivity solutions.

PacketFabric customers benefit from access to the Switch Las Vegas data center from any point on the PacketFabric network, with other Switch facilities to follow shortly thereafter. Customers will also gain additional options to reach PacketFabric’s platform, and interconnect with Switch data center clients.

PacketFabric CaaS platform provides highly scalable, private network connectivity on demand, at speeds from 1Gbps to multi-100Gbps, and enables dynamic, real-time connectivity services between major carrier-neutral colocation facilities at terabit-scale by leveraging their innovative, entirely automated SDN-based network architecture using the latest optical and packet switching technology. This greatly reduces the sourcing and provisioning times of network services to minutes, through an intuitive web portal and API. By connecting to PacketFabric, companies enjoy instant access to simple, cost-effective, and scalable network deployment.

“PacketFabric is proud to be a strategic part of the growing services and solution provider ecosystem within Switch’s premier Tier 5® Platinum data centers,” adds Chad Milam, President and Chief Operating Officer, PacketFabric. “The expansion to Switch brings our network-as-a-service platform to additional markets and gives our customers greater flexibility in connecting to our platform.”

Deploying PacketFabric’s CaaS platform at Switch data centers offers customers new options for connectivity and cloud solutions. In addition, PacketFabric gives Switch clients the ability to reach new partners, customers, and locations, as well as cloud and other technology service providers on the PacketFabric network. This implementation allows instantaneous provision to secure network connectivity, and establishes direct, private connections to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, and other leading cloud service providers. In addition, PacketFabric facilitates coast-to-coast connectivity between more than 150 premier colocation facilities across 19 markets in the United States and Europe expanding end user reach significantly further.

PacketFabric, based in Culver City, California, provides solutions that redefine how companies procure, consume, and manage their network connectivity services. Connecting with Switch is another step in their efforts to remove complexity while enabling secure custom access for the end user.
