Equinix offers rooftop space for antennas at the majority of IBXs globally.
Each IBX varies, so a Capacity Feasibility Review (CFR) is required to evaluate the capability, cable distances, and line of sight at each location.
Pricing varies depending on the antenna type and size. Contact your Account Rep or Sales Engineer for details.
No, each antenna must connect to a cabinet or cage owned by the same customer of record.
Equinix is responsible for any natural obstructions within our property boundary. Equinix is not responsible for intra-customer interference or obstructions/interference outside our property line.
No, we observe the same security guidelines around protecting the privacy of antenna deployments as we do for colocation deployments.
Some IBXs require a lift to install antennas, depending on the antenna type and the location of the antenna mast. If your specific installation requires a lift, you are notified during the quoting process.
No, Equinix does not track, monitor, or offer opinions on frequency selection. If you need assistance, you can contact an independent Frequency Coordinator or register with the FCC.
With our Smart Hands service, you can request access to your antenna platform by creating a Smart Hands order for Cage/Roof Access Supervision Escort. (This order helps the IBX technician account for the additional time to walk you to the platform, and may be associated with an additional cost.) For instructions, see Smart Hands Orders.
