What is ECX and ECXF

Hello,
I have been reading the ECXF API documentation and I noticed that both "ECX" and "ECXF" abbreviations are used in the V3 APIs migration section. Are ECX and ECXF two separate products?

Hello there,

Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric (ECXF) is the 3rd version of Cloud Exchange APIs.It is the successor to Equinix Cloud Exchange Version 2 APIs (ECX V2). Unlike its predecessors, the ECXF V3 APIs support inter-region and inter metro connectivity across the globe. Due to the complex network of multiple regions, it is called Fabric.
