To extend its network reach, provide its enterprise customers and improve its interconnection capabilities, a Nigerian company, MainOne, has adopted Equinix Fabric.

Equinix Fabric is an on-demand, software-defined interconnection service which provides global reach to the Equinix network of over 245 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres located in 71 major metros and 32 countries around the world.

Equinix Fabric directly, securely, and dynamically connects distributed infrastructure and digital ecosystems on Platform Equinix.

The leading connectivity and data centre services provider in Nigeria said the new development would give customers on-demand and seamless connectivity to cloud providers, remote markets, and local infrastructure.

The Chief Technical Officer of MainOne, Mr Anil Verma, said, “In the new expansion, MainOne will utilize Equinix IBX data centres in Lisbon (LS1) and London (LD5) to create geographic diversity, enabling its customers to connect their IT infrastructure to a dynamic and rich ecosystem, enjoying more direct access to Cloud services, and higher performance, ensuring they can stay ahead of their competitors with low-latency and secure IT infrastructure.”

He also said, “As a long-time customer of Equinix Fabric, MainOne has utilized the global footprint of data centres and services to establish connections to cloud service providers and enable private, dedicated connections for customers in West Africa.

“Now, as an Equinix company, expanding our network to Equinix Fabric guarantees enhanced SLA and lower latency for critical services and applications. This is part of our commitment to provide our customers with world-class interconnection services to accelerate their digital journey.”
