Colocation Networking & Connectivity

Gartner outlines how enterprises can employ colocation networking – the bringing together of various connections in one facility – to achieve the same cloud benefits that cloud providers, content providers and carriers already enjoy. With colocation networking, enterprises can realise superior flexibility, resiliency and cost reduction. This report covers the three aspects of colocation networking – Ethernet-based access, intracolocation and intercolocation – and how your enterprise can gain a competitive advantage through their implementation.


  • Solve the last-mile problem via Ethernet
  • Use intracolocation networking to enable peering and direct cloud connection
  • Implement intercolocation access to reduce WAN costs, latency and improve availability

Models that include consolidated access, exchange point switching and a mesh of competitive interconnections offer the same architectural and technical benefits used by cloud providers, content providers and carriers to reduce costs and latency while adding functionality and flexibility.
