Frontier Communications Corporation is expanding its business services with the launch of Frontier® Connect – Cloud. The new offering leverages the breadth of Frontier’s ethernet network to provide customers a cloud connection for highly secure, private, dedicated access from their businesses to the world’s leading third-party Cloud Service Providers.
Frontier is collaborating with Equinix, a global provider of interconnection and data center services, to bring business customers a high-performing cloud service. This fully managed connectivity service satisfies the increasing demand for real-time digital interactions, cybersecurity, data sovereignty and digital transactions when connecting users with cloud service providers.
To ensure secure and fast cloud application performance with lower latencies, Frontier® Connect – Cloud combines the power of Software-defined networking (SDN) technology with the resiliency of the Frontier network to connect users directly, via a private connection, to the Equinix ecosystem of 100+ Cloud Service Providers, via the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™. ECX Fabric offers direct connectivity to more than 1,000 participants, including some of the world’s largest enterprises and cloud service providers.
Frontier® Connect – Cloud improves cloud application performance and reduces latency by enabling more consistent throughput to cloud services. This allows for accelerated software development and enables application innovation and data center transformation, supporting cloud and multi-cloud strategies. It also brings visibility and control to any network, while allowing users to scale.
“Frontier® Connect – Cloud offers secure, reliable, scalable connectivity, to business-critical cloud services. The service is easy to deploy and flexible, regardless of business size or geographic location,” said Daniel Peiretti, Senior Vice President of Commercial Product & Marketing for Frontier Communications. “Combined with our ethernet services, Frontier® Connect – Cloud provides an on-ramp to better performing cloud applications.”
Peiretti continued, “In collaboration with Equinix, Frontier brings a new standard of network performance and next-generation connectivity services to companies looking to expand their reach throughout the United States.”
