Cloud Optimized WAN Engagement: 2 Day Workshop


Help customers realize, plan and develop a framework around WAN transformation and get clear insight into the best approach and architect so that they can confidently progress in their cloud journey.

Working with the customer, Equinix develops a customized WAN strategy with focus on improved latency, performance, security and flexibility, while providing clear insights into expected return on investment (ROI), or Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Leveraging our methodology ensures fast application delivery from the cloud or data centers out to employees and customers.
