Pricing, Billing, and Terms

Purpose Here are key concepts for Equinix Cross Connects pricing, billing, and terms, to make the charges on your monthly invoice easier to understand.

Each Cross Connects product includes a one-time non-recurring charge (NRC) installation fee. To terminate your term length early, you must pay a one-time deinstallation fee. There are term commitments for Cross Connects products that follow the Colocation terms. (See Colocation for more information). Here are some details to consider when pricing Cross Connects products:

Connection Pricing
Standard Cross Connects MRC¹ and installation charge (NRC²)
Campus Cross Connects MRC¹ and installation charge (NRC²)
Diverse Campus Cross Connects MRC¹ and installation charge (NRC²)
Extended Cross Connects MRC¹ and installation charge (NRC²)
Innerduct Pricing varies by region
Intra-Customer Cross Connects Installation charge (NRC²) only, but no MRC¹

Considerations for customer-managed connections:

Customer-Managed Pre-Cabling Connection Pricing
Extended Demarcation MRC¹ and installation charge (NRC²)
Intra-Facility Cabling (IFC)³ Installation charge (NRC²) only, but no MRC¹
Private Patch Panel Installation charge (NRC²) only, but no MRC¹

¹MRC – Monthly recurring charge
²NRC – Non-recurring charge
³In EMEA, pre-integration IFC assets typically have an MRC (with no MRC on the associated Cross Connects), and new orders of IFC only have an NRC (with MRC on the associated Cross Connects).
