Cross Connect

A cross connect is a physical cable that connects two different network devices within a data center or a carrier hotel. It is used to establish a dedicated, high-speed connection between two devices for the purpose of exchanging data with low latency and high reliability. Cross connects are commonly used to connect servers, storage devices, routers, switches, and other networking equipment, either within the same data center or across multiple data centers. Cross connects are typically leased from data center operators or carriers and can be configured in a variety of ways, including copper or fiber optic cabling and different interface types and speeds.
