Achieve Global Connectivity with SDN Fabric

While the global economy and businesses thrive, legacy networking models put a limit to enterprise growth. In this digital economy, limitations in network connectivity can slow down business growth and impede an organisation’s digital transformation. Thankfully, innovations in networking are changing that paradigm.

Greater flexibility and scalability in network connectivity is now possible with the mainstream adoption of software-defined networking (SDN) technology. Imagine connecting and deploying applications and services quickly and easily around the world with the power of an SDN fabric at your fingertips.

Weaving a Far-Reaching Network Fabric

SDN fabrics are a network mesh of interconnected global data centers, cloud service providers (CSP), internet exchanges (IX) and networks that are seamlessly managed via an orchestration platform. This make it easier to interconnect, but not all SDN fabrics are made equal.

 Some enables interconnections within a limited footprint, which restricts the enterprise to link with the broader ecosystem.

A genuinely global SDN fabric gives businesses the ability to interconnect with a diverse ecosystem. Powered by a self-service SDN platform, the business has the freedom to grow wherever and whenever they want. It is no longer restricted to a single market, having the ability to interconnect in technology and business hubs globally.


A US-based enterprise looking to interconnect in Europe and China can stitch together a network of data centres in multiple regions. It can also turn up multiple direct connections to CSPs seamlessly as they move more of their workloads into the cloud.  

The SDN fabric also makes it easier for interconnecting across a more diverse ecosystem whether it’s a public cloud, data centre or network.

Global Interconnect made Simple

While access to diverse ecosystems may appear to be rather complicated, the reality is that they are much simpler via a single connectivity provider. All network resources can be managed and delivered on-demand using an SDN platform. This capability negates the need for manual ordering and provisioning often associated with traditional networking.

Unlike traditional networking model, an SDN platform also offers real-time visibility for monitoring and management of network performance and pricing. A system with full transparency allows an organisation to adapt and optimise network connectivity via intuitive and intelligent interface with agile and scalable bandwidth options that can be flexed or reduced to meet changing needs.

Businesses can rely on a single on-demand connectivity platform to deliver network services with enhanced levels of automation. This capability drives efficiency, reduces procurement time, and removes the need for resources to manage multiple relationships.

Giving Businesses Additional Mileage

When a business needs immediate bandwidth capacity to roll out new services to international destinations, they can rely on SDN fabrics for extensive interconnect options delivered via carrier-grade network. Using an SDN platforms like Infiny by Epsilon, enterprises can scale globally with a flexible and agile networking model.

On-demand global connectivity combined with unparalleled visibility and network control makes Infiny a powerful solution to serve any business expanding its network across regions. There is no need to build a whole new network fabric or turn up multiple services offered by different service providers.

What businesses need is a fast and easy to way to connect globally which is made possible with SDN. Epsilon’s global network coverage enables access to more than 220 data centres in 39 cities with direct connection to major CSPs such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. This capability gives them 100 percent control over their network and the way they connect their business globally.
