Equinix adds Colt, GTS, Broadnet to European Ethernet exchange

Equinix (Nasdaq: EQIX) is making strides in enhancing its Equinix Carrier Ethernet Exchange (ECEE) platform by adding three new European service providers to the mix.

By bringing on Colt Technology Services (Nasdaq: COLT) , GTS and Broadnet into the mix, Equinix has 55 service providers that can offer services via its Ethernet exchange platform.

Each of these service providers bring a number of their own aspects to potential buyers wanting to purchase services from Equinix.

Colt has built out an Ethernet network via its own facilities and established E-NNI relationships throughout both Europe and the United States, while GTS has dense coverage in Central and Eastern Europe and Broadnet covers Scandinavia.

At the same time, Colt, GTS and Broadnet also gain access to Equnix's global Ethernet partners through a one-to-many interconnection model that enables them to sell Ethernet services and connectivity to other ECEE operator members who want to extend connectivity to mainland Europe and Scandinavia.
