Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC) said it has secured a link to the Equinix Cloud Exchange, an interconnection platform that enables businesses to select and connect to a range of public cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Rackspace.
The agreement helps TWCBC to build on its own NaviSite cloud platform. TWC acquired NaviSite in 2011 for $230 million. Ethernet connectivity to the Equinix Cloud Exchange is delivered via TWCBC’s network. Connections to the exchange are available from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
“TWCBC already offers secure and reliable Ethernet connectivity to our NaviSite cloud platform. With the announcement today, we can now meet connectivity requirements for customers who use other cloud service providers to meet their IT needs,” Satya Parimi, GVP, product management for TWCBC, said in a statement.
Time Warner Cable Business Services more than 700,000 business customers. TWC pulled in $836 million in business services revenues in Q3 2015, up from $724 million in the year-ago period.
