A global, real-world proving ground can offer companies a huge advantage, especially when it’s based on a vendor-neutral interconnection platform, along with the right level of expertise for proactively testing new digital solutions. Equinix can offer that kind of environment and support to help accelerate digital transformation and innovation with a greater level of success.
To succeed as a digital business, companies are adopting private Interconnection at accelerated rates to build an underlying digital-ready infrastructure. The Global Interconnection Index (the GXI) Volume 2, a market study recently published by Equinix, analyzes global Interconnection—the direct and private traffic exchange between businesses.
To remedy this embarrassment and bring a greater degree of security, the payment card industry as well as real-time payment platforms are moving to tokenization—a process by which a surrogate value in the form of a series of randomly-generated numbers, known as a “token,” replaces the primary account number.

The report points out that adapting to this new world of digital applications and data-driven insights requires flexible and reliable technology infrastructure. This is the key to realizing the true potential of digital initiatives but this is where most enterprise networks fall short. They’re simply not able to guarantee the required levels of availability, performance or security.
High-profile security breaches that exploited Internet of Things (IoT) vulnerabilities have created major business concerns, and people really aren’t sure how safe IoT is. These breaches have redoubled industry efforts to make the IoT as secure as possible, and the joke implies that these efforts are succeeding. But that’s debatable.
Between 2017-2021, the GXI projects a 48% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in Interconnection Bandwidth, the total capacity provisioned to privately and directly exchange traffic with a diverse set of participants at distributed IT exchange points. Europe is expected to contribute 23% of installed Interconnection Bandwidth capacity globally by 2021, an estimated 1,921 Terabits per second (Tbps).
PT conducted three different Amazon Web Services™ (AWS EC2) interconnection scenarios at the Principled Technologies data center and an Equinix Solution Validation Center™ (SVC) to see if there was a significant difference in data transfer performance when using the public internet versus private interconnection between businesses and cloud partners. The results were pretty amazing.
