What is a Megaport?
A Megaport is the high speed Ethernet interface that connects to the Megaport™ fabric. Bandwidth options between Megaports range from 1 Mbps to 100 Gbps.
|10 Gbps||10GBASE-LR (10km)|
|40 Gbps||40GBASE-LR (10km)|
|100 Gbps||100GBASE-LR (10km)|
The low speed Ethernet interface for connection to the Megaport™ ecosystem is known as a 1G Megaport. It is a 1 Gbps interface that can be used to connect to a Megaport with bandwidth options ranging from 1 Mbps to 1 Gbps.
|1 Gbps||1000BASE-LX (10km)|
Megaports are enabled to support point-to-multipoint services, with the ability to also support a single point-to-point service.
VXC™ (Virtual Cross Connect™)
A VXC™ (Virtual Cross Connect™) is a direct Ethernet connection between two Megaports allowing high speed, private connectivity. VXCs are provisioned within minutes allowing rapid deployment and time to revenue.
The VXC is configured in increments of bandwidth between Megaports. A VXC is configured as a Virtual Leased Line (VLL) or more commonly known as an MPLS pseudo-wire.
A VXC is a fast, secure and affordable means of network connectivity, allowing you to use your Megaport™ interface to connect to one or many service providers or enterprises.
VXCs are private, point-to-point Ethernet pseudo-wires presented as VLAN between two Megaports. All VXCs have a large MTU of 9100 bytes, support Q-in-Q and are transparent to most protocols. VXCs between Megaports in the same state have no speed or data usage limits. VXCs are available in bandwidth increments of 1 Mbps up to 100 Gbps.
Megaport owns and operates a 100% neutral internet exchange and provides connectivity to content and services across multiple geographies.
Megaport users can choose to participate in multilateral or bilateral peering on the exchanges, available at any Megaport Enabled Location™, providing a unique and diverse peering community as well as improved network performance, redundancy and service levels saving our users from transit costs.
