Fast, reliable IP bandwidth, provisioned on demand
Tired of waiting for your provider to turn up your Internet circuit? Need a cost-effective backup pipe? Cyxtera’s IP Connect service provides rapidly-provisioned, multi-homed Internet bandwidth.
Traditional Internet circuit provisioning can take days or weeks to complete, and it can be challenging to accurately forecast bandwidth and overall IT capacity requirements more than a few months at a time. This forces businesses to initially over-provision to assure adequate bandwidth to scale as demand grows.
Deploy and configure Internet connectivity while you rack and stack your infrastructure. Connect with our IP Connect blended IP bandwidth service without waiting weeks for circuit turn-up.
What is IP Connect
IP Connect provides rapidly provisioned fault-tolerant connectivity via multiple Tier 1 IP backbones. Powered by our CXD platform, deploying a fast and cost-effective primary or backup IP connection takes just minutes, and connectivity can be scaled up and down at will via API or our portal. IP Connect is available in capacities from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps.
How it Works
IP Connect is delivered via fixed rate VLAN across the CXD network fabric to a CXD Unified Services Port (USP). CXD ports are available over single-mode fiber up to 10 Gbps.
IP Connect customers are provided with an IP address block with additional addresses available for purchase, or bring your own registered IP address block.
- /29 CIDR block (eight addresses, three usable) provided at no additional cost to each IP Connect customer
- Additional blocks are available for an additional fee
- /56 CIDR block provided at no additional cost to each IP Connect customer
IP Connect supports either static default routing or border gateway protocol (BGP) routing over customer connections. If a customer wishes to use BGP they may provide an autonomous system number (ASN) or we can provide a private ASN during provisioning.
IP Connect supports both IPv4 and IPv6. The service is delivered over a multi-homed connection (primary and failover) to ensure a high level of availability with provides access from multiple Tier 1 IP backbones. Internet bandwidth is sold at defined committed information rates (CIR) and allows bursting up to 10 Gbps. Utilization over the CIR is subject to an overage charge.
