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.

Speed Interface
1 Gbps 1000BASE-LX (10km)
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.

Megaports are able to supply a single or several point-to-point services to the same or diverse destinations.

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 Cloud Router (MCR)

MCR provides a virtualised cloud routing environment which allows customers to seamlessly connect between public Cloud, SaaS, Iaas, and PaaS providers without the need for a physical Port or on-premise network equipment.

MCR is a user-defined cloud routing service leveraging the Megaportal to utilise Megaport’s global SDN.

Customers anywhere in the world can nearly instantaneously establish a private connection to and between any destination in the Megaport Ecosystem including public Cloud Service Providers.
