About Digital Letters of Authorization (DiLOAs)
An Equinix Digital Letter of Authorization (DiLOA) enables you to create secure and efficient authorization for your A-side partner to create a connection inside Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers. A DiLOA is a digital document which replaces letters of authorization that were created manually. Users create DiLOAs by submitting an online form through the Digital LOA Manager.
Equinix DiLOA supports:
Direct access to a digital ecosystem of business partners and service providers
Reduced latency, to enhance performance and to accelerate provisioning
Simplified cable management, allowing you to flexibly customize your digital edge
Port reservations for the LOA request, which ensures that new connections are created without disturbing the ports that are already in use in the patch panels
LOA management through the Digital LOA Manager
Equinix also provides APIs in the Equinix Developer Platform to automate the DiLOA functions and features. For more information about DiLOAs, see the DiLOA data sheet.
Currently, DiLOA supports the Cross Connects ordering process.
