Introducing Megaport Internet

Introducing Megaport Internet

Get a dedicated internet solution with all the benefits of Megaport’s scalable network fabric in just 60 seconds.

In the ever-evolving digital realm, internet connectivity is the lifeblood of so many business operations. But when it comes to enterprise connectivity, traditional providers can be slow to deploy, providing unreliable connections that are difficult to manage.

For enterprise customers looking to spin up a reliable dedicated internet connection quickly and easily, there’s now a better way with Megaport Internet.

Why choose dedicated internet access?

For enterprises, a consistent, reliable connection can make their bottom line. Dedicated internet access is the best way to get consistent connectivity – download and upload speeds aren’t impacted by competing traffic, bandwidth is available right when and where users need it, and customer experience improves as a result.

Typically, enterprise customers can purchase dedicated internet access from select carrier service providers or NaaS providers. But what if you could combine this network function with all the benefits of using the Megaport ecosystem? Now, you can.

Here are some ways you can start incorporating Megaport Internet into your enterprise network.

Connecting internet to a Port

Let’s say your enterprise needs to reach users in one region whilst their applications are stored and managed in a different region. You could allow your users to access these apps by connecting your main server via the internet – but long-distance data exchange over the internet is exposed to congestion, and you won’t have any visibility or control over its journey. There’s a better way.

Instead, you can connect a Virtual Cross Connect (VXC) between your main server and a Port in your users’ region, then connect your Port to Megaport Internet to facilitate dedicated connectivity to your end users. This architecture eliminates the risk of congestion and high latency for inter-region connectivity.

Connecting internet to MCR

With MCR, our managed routing platform, you can simplify cross-cloud connectivity by easily connecting multiple cloud environments. Connecting Megaport Internet to MCR enables you to use VXCs as your primary cloud connectivity method, and internet as your backup connectivity method. By employing two different links which are used on separate domains, this architecture increases network availability.
