ANX 2.0 represents the evolution of the ANX network. Whereas the original ANX was used to establish secure, private, business-to-business connections between North American companies, ANX 2.0 adds the functionality of being an “on-ramp” to other private communities and services. The centerpiece of this enhanced functionality is the interconnection to the European Network Exchange (ENX). The ENX Association, governing the communications network and managed security service of the European automotive industry, has certified ANX as an ENX Certified Service Provider (CSP). ANX and ENX customers can now establish private connections to more than 1,600 member companies located across North America, Europe and other parts of the world. These connections are covered by stringent service level agreements for availability, performance and repair that are unmatched by Public Internet solutions. ANX Network members establish connections to ENX members at no additional cost.
Other enhancements are being developed as part of ANX 2.0. ANX customers will be able to use their private ANX access circuit to securely connect to cloud infrastructure providers and 3G/4G networks. This expanded capability will keep more eCommerce on the ANX Network where it is secure and supported by end-to-end SLAs.
