How it Works
Metro Connect is a highly reliable, encrypted network service based on Cyxtera’s state-of-the-art Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) managed fiber technology. It securely links our data center campuses and affiliate facilities in the same metropolitan area. Metro Connect enables you to stretch your layer 1 or 2 networks between campuses and seamlessly link deployments or create availability zones.

Cyxtera engineers are ready to help you design the metro network that best suits your needs.

Connecting with Metro Fiber and Network Providers
In addition to our Metro Connect service, Cyxtera’s network-neutral Meet Me Rooms in all of our data centers provide access to multiple local and regional network service and dark fiber providers. Each of these providers are just a cross connect away from your colocation deployments and IT assets in Cyxtera data centers.
