How to make smarter choices for intercapital connectivity

Today’s hyper-connected business landscape has created growing demand for on-demand, high-bandwidth connectivity between enterprise networks and the data centres hosting an organisation’s IT service, when and where it’s needed.

It’s another way consumption-based economics are not just changing the way that organisations think about their compute spends, but also the way they expect to invest in networks, which requires greater flexibility than traditional network offerings.

On-demand network access

Flexibility is the name of the game and a new generation of on-demand networking services are here to provide an alternative to traditional, long-term data centre-to-data centre intercapital connectivity agreements, by providing you with on-demand access to the carrier networks hosted in your colocation data centre.

Don’t lock me in!

Traditionally, network connectivity has been sold based on long term, locked-in contracts, however the shift towards consumption-based networking has opened up new opportunities. By giving you access to what’s effectively a carrier marketplace, NEXTDC’s interconnectivity service allows you to compare your current carrier with the competition, helping you to make educated decisions based on price, contract terms and network features, or even the fibre path used to deliver the service, depending on what’s most important for your business.

Scale when you need to

Offering a varied choice of carriers in each capital city, with NEXTDC you can now purchase connectivity based on the specific needs of your business at any given time – leaving room to scale when you need to instead of when your contracts renew.
