How it works


IBM Cloud Direct Link consists of a physical network connection at a number of IBM 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 IBM are established on IBM Cloud Direct Link routers. These physical connections are maintained between IBM and Megaport.

You can purchase 1Gbps and 10Gbps Ports onto the Megaport Network. Through the, VXCs can be ordered in increments of 1Mbps speeds and scale in increments 1Mbps to IBM.
