For Megaport customers looking for IP Transit connectivity, the ability to burst, and use on-demand without commitment, we are now offering a new service option. This new service extension allows us to offer customers the option to add our IP Transit service to their existing Megaport services.
All enterprises using hybrid or virtual environments via one or more of the major hyper-scale providers.
A customer needs additional capacity and is currently a Megaport end user:
- The customer is currently colocated in an Xfernet off-net facility. Megaport on net.
- The customer wants connectivity with little to no-commit, the ability to burst, and short term use.
- Xfernet uses Megaport to deliver IP Transit service to the end-user via a VXC between data centers.
- Megaport VXC is used as a last-mile means to deliver Xfernet’s network to the end-user.
- End user now has a network that they can completely control the usage of even with diverse carriers.
In the typical situation, the customer contacts a carrier in the data center and commits to a port. The administrative and provisioning process can take on average 30 days or more to be on net.
The traditional sales process is very time consuming – quoting is not streamlined and turnaround time is long for responses, capacity verifications, sales engineering, etc…
With Megaport + Xfernet, customers sign up for an Xfernet circuit and then simply go into the Megaport portal, order a virtual cross-connect to Xfernet and be on net within the same day.
