Equinix Internet Access offers Fabric users a virtual connection to the internet. You can use the Fabric portal or public API commands to set up and configure your new internet service.
You must have an active Equinix Fabric port.
Your organization must be onboarded to an Equinix CRH/AM Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform.
You cannot use a billing account that requires either a signature or a purchase order (PO). Billing accounts that require POs (also known as PO bearing accounts) or signatures can’t be used to place orders for Internet Access with Fabric.
Your Fabric port must be located in one of these supported metros:
