PacketFabric now has a presence in phoenixNAP's flagship data center in Phoenix, Arizona,. PhoenixNAP successfully deployed PacketFabric's Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform.

The new point of presence will add additional access points to PacketFabric's network, and it will also allow phoenixNAP customers to take advantage of improved connectivity and greater carrier choice.

The company says it empowers its customers to easily create and manage private networks using its web portal and API.

Customers can instantly create secure interconnections to every point on PacketFabric's network, reaching major internet exchanges, cloud service providers, and more.

PhoenixNAP's data center will enable PacketFabric to further improve access to its services and directly access AWS Direct Connect. PhoenixNAP is the only AWS Direct Connect edge location in Arizona and it is uniquely positioned to support PacketFabric's expansion efforts.

PhoenixNAP's Phoenix data center is also connected to all major domestic and global network interconnectivity points.

PacketFabric's network technology is a significant addition to phoenixNAP's carrier list, enabling it to extend its internet exchange services and offer improved domestic connectivity.

“The collaboration with PacketFabric is our next step in ensuring carrier neutrality and expanding interconnectivity options for our customers,” says phoenixNAP's president Ian McClarty.

“Our flagship data center hosts over 30 premier bandwidth, network, and telecom carriers, and we are excited that PacketFabric is a part of that ecosystem. Its network is robust, stable, and scalable, which enables us to deliver an improved experience to our customers.
