NGINX Plus Load Balancer F5's NGINX Plus is now available in the Equinix Marketplace. This is the first load balancer offered on Network Edge, expanding the device types available to include SD-WAN, firewall, router, and load balancer. NGINX Plus can be used in conjunction with existing Network Edge routers or firewalls to scale and manage traffic volume. See Create an F5 NGINX Plus Load Balancer for more information.
Single BYOC Untagged Connection You can now create a single BYOC untagged connection over an existing port. In release 2022.2, we introduced the ability to request a new untagged connection from a service provider. Now we are enhancing the capability to include untagged connections to existing ports, making BYOC easier and more transparent to telco customers.
Subscription Licenses for Resellers As of 2022.3, Resellers will no longer be able to place device orders with subscription licenses on behalf of sub-accounts and sub-customers. Resellers can continue to place device orders for themselves, but they will be unable to place orders on behalf of sub-customers and sub-accounts.
