Software for Efficient Delivery and Operation of Today’s Expanded Networking Services Portfolio

Digitalization is changing tenants’ workloads. Managing these new workloads requires connectivity to support fast direct connects, speedy on-ramps to public clouds, and reliable cross connects with partners. Network choice and capacity are often deciding factors when businesses evaluate colocation services providers.

FNT’s software-based data center connectivity management solution – FNT Command – ensures your infrastructure supports an expanded connectivity services portfolio. It goes beyond the physical critical infrastructure layer to also support networking services.

FNT Helps MTDCs Win Today’s New Breed of Customer

MTDCs that can connect their customers to the cloud, to partners and to other data centers with fast and reliable network connections will be the ones that succeed in today’s digital world. That’s why leading MTDCs rely on FNT. Our software for data access, integration and analysis supports these connections, so hosting providers are positioned to play an integral role in their customers’ changing data center strategy. Their networks will deliver what today’s customers demand:

bandwidth to guarantee fault-free inter- and intra-connections
low latency
high resiliency/redundancy

Deciding what connectivity services to offer is the easy part. Operationalizing a connectivity strategy is difficult. You’ll need to manage a hybrid infrastructure, which requires standardizing and harmonizing complex network operations. The most important action MTDCs can take is to upgrade their infrastructure and adopt the enabling technologies for interconnection-oriented services.
