Vanuatu-based network service provider, Can’L has signed a datacentre partnership with Equinix which will see the former deploy within the latter’s Sydney location.
The agreement will see Can’L utilise the Southern Cross Cable Network (SCCN) which connects Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Hawaii to the US West Coast. The SCCN is located within Equinix as well.
In deploying in an Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) datacentre, Can’L will be able to tap into the datacentre operator’s base of more than 975 network providers globally which gives it options for connecting to the Cloud and content delivery networks.
“Along with SCCN and Equinix, Can’L now connects Vanuatu to the rest of the world,” Can’L director, Simon Fletcher, said.
“As a result, Can’L can provide enhanced and reliable high-speed broadband services and enable ecommerce to the island nation of Vanuatu, benefiting its local businesses and economy.”
Equinix Australia managing director, Tony Simonsen, claims the partnership reflects Equinix’s goal to provide companies like Can’L with the same opportunities as global corporations based in major cities.
