Dedicated Connectivity to Google Cloud Platform
Megaport enables dedicated connectivity to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) via Google Cloud’s Partner Interconnect (GCI Partner).
Our Software Defined Networking (SDN) solution provides high-performance, secure, and flexible connections between your network and GCP. Connectivity that gives you superior network consistency, subrate speeds, and scalable bandwidth allows you to align your cloud consumption with your networking requirements. Our global reach extends across North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe enabling you to provision connections from 200+ Megaport-enabled locations worldwide.

Direct connectivity to GCP with Megaport enables you to:
- Bypass the public internet for enhanced security and higher network performance
- Leverage the global reach of our Network beyond Google’s existing PoP locations
- Scale your bandwidth to suit your business needs without requiring the full capacity of Google’s Dedicated Interconnect
- Make savings on egress traffic costs from your VPC network to your on-premises network
- Simplify the provisioning and ongoing management of connections for a seamless user experience using the API integration between Megaport and Google
- Manage multiple connections to GCP from a single location
How it works
GCI Partner consists of a physical network connection between Megaport and Google at a number of Google Interconnect Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world. These PoPs reside within facilities operated by co-located data centres where Megaport is enabled.
Physical fibre connections (NNIs) at each location between Megaport and Google are established on redundant (minimum of two) Google Cloud Interconnect routers. These physical connections are maintained between Megaport and Google.
You can purchase 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ports onto the Megaport Network. Through the megaport.al, VXCs can be ordered and scaled in subrate speeds of 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 Mbps and 1, 2, 5 and 10 Gbps to GCP.
