Taking it to next-level security, Private Interconnect offers IoT customers to expand their safety solution that connects to Equinix’s global Interconnection service, Equinix Fabric. Owing to this, IoT customers can now directly, dynamically, and securely connect to digital ecosystems and distributed infrastructure using a single port.

Security is the topmost priority while working with IoT. Tele2 has planned to open a dedicated fiber specifically for IoT customers who are of the view that public Internet does not fulfill professional security requirements.

The customer data is sent via a Private Interconnect (fixed lines) through Tele2’s backbone fiber network and stored into the customer’s own dedicated fibers. Private Interconnect eliminates the risk of exploitation on the public Internet and offers utilization of digital infrastructure from Equinix, a well-established player in the interconnection service provider world.

Private Interconnect from Tele2 IoT provides high bandwidth, stability, security, scalability, lower network latency, and improved performance. It also offers direct access to leading services, enterprises, and cloud providers.

“By adding Private Interconnect to our 2ACCESS family, we complement our solution for customers where security really is really important; with our partnership with Equinix, we help our customers securely and scalable connect their devices in a cost-conscious way, something we know our customers are demanding,” says Cyril Deschanel, Managing Director, Tele2 IoT.

“Cyberthreats are becoming ever more prevalent as the number of user devices and cloud resources increase. It is vital, therefore, that companies solve for distributed security risks. It is great to see Tele2 leverage interconnection to provide customers with a way to address cybersecurity risks. Whatever we can do to help enterprises with this challenge, we will,” says Maria Sundvall, Managing Director, Sweden, Equinix.
