CH4 Chicago - Network Interconnection Specifications

Equinix was the first to offer colocation services within this building, leading the way by offering over 90 network providers housed directly within Equinix. Just a standard cross connect away, CH4 customers can access both CH1, which is located on the 5th Floor, and CH2, which is located on the 6th Floor, within the same building. In addition, Equinix is home to the electronic trading of futures and options thanks to Equinix Financial eXchange. The Equinix Financial eXchange delivery platform serves the unique needs of the banking and trading communities within the financial services sector. This platform allows large banks and trading exchanges to link directly to their "communities of interest" — key strategic partners and suppliers such as brokers, traders, futures clearing merchants (FCM), data feed suppliers and proprietary software vendors.
