About Cross Connects

  • Electronic trading exchanges run hundreds of cross connects between servers inside our IBX data centres to maximise the number of trades processed per second and eliminate milliseconds of latency that can cost traders millions of dollars.
  • Content companies running streaming video sites use a single cross connect to link to the major international carriers and ISPs that serve their users.
  • Cloud providers reduce latency to their end-users by deploying cross connects to the networks and ISPs serving their end-users within the same building.
  • Enterprises connect their most critical applications to multiple global networks for redundancy and pricing advantages.
