Your highly business-oriented data needs protection by exercising total control all across its netwok path.



Now, your data transfer to and from your servers in each of our data centers is more economical across your private network.

Xband Enterprises network engineers will work with you and your network service provider or colocation provider to cross-connect your router to ours, and we’ll enable a private and secure 1Gbps or 10Gbps connection to your servers across the private network.

With this connection, you’ll have unfettered access to your servers on the DataCenterx platform. And because you’re connected to our private network, all traffic across your Direct Link and between your servers does not touch the public network or interfere with your public network traffic.
