Thank you for your note, Charlie.

The FCR compliments Fabric to allow users to connect their clouds and Equinix networks in ways they couldn't before.

Traditionally Fabric has enabled point to point connections, meaning a user could connect a cloud to another cloud, or an Equinix outpost with a cloud provider/service profile. They were limited to direct connections between two places.

FCR allows users to connect any source to a number of destinations, similarly to a traditional router, but much faster and without all the configuration steps required to manage a router.
