What are its advantages?

With an equity-indexed annuity, you get to participate in the upside when the stock market is climbing, but you also protect yourself against the downside since you'll earn a guaranteed minimum return even if stock prices fall.

In short, an equity-indexed annuity may pay a higher return than a standard fixed annuity would, but have less risk than a variable annuity.
