VirtualPNI: Connect privately

AF-CIX’s VirtualPNI service allows customers to easily establish virtual private connections. The connection can be provisioned easily, between any two points within a metro region and also between metro regions. It can be used for MPLS connections, enterprise network traffic, or the selling of transit or paid peering. You can save on Capex and Opex as no additional equipment is needed, and you can easily extend the reach of your own network by using our infrastructure.
