Network Efficiency

Reducing the number of tiers in your network improves network manageability. By deploying Equinix Performance Hubs at user-dense locations with access to Internet and cloud service providers, you can avoid wasting WAN bandwidth.

Traditional vs. Distributed Architectures

How Proximity Affects QoE

Levels of QoE Legend

Traditional architecture funnels data through scattered locations. So the further removed from headquarters, the worse the user experience. Since Performance Hubs are deployed closer to end users in key metros across the globe, you get consistent QoE no matter the location or device.

Case Study: A Re-architected Network

A Fortune 500 financial services company redesigned their network to connect their regional offices to Equinix Performance Hubs at multiple locations.
