What if I'm not co-located with an Akamai Direct Connect data center

If you are not co-located in one of the existing Akamai Direct Connect data centers it is still possible to gain the benefits of Akamai Direct Connect. This is accomplished by purchasing connectivity from a 3rd party to bridge the connection from your the data center where your applications and content resides to the Akamai Direct Connect data center.
