Google Partner Interconnect Process Overview
For a general overview of using interconnects with PacketFabric, see Google Cloud Interconnect Overview.
1. Complete the prerequisites.
The VPC is the heart of your Google Cloud environment and is the target of your interconnect connection.
This can be done before you begin or as you are creating your VLAN attachment.
Before you can log in, your account is manually reviewed and then approved by the PacketFabric team. You should receive approval within 24 hours.
Provisioning a port only takes a few minutes. You can then generate an LOA and handle the cross connection installation yourself, or you can have us manage it. For more information, see Cross Connects.
At this point, your network looks roughly like this (assuming a 10 Gbps connection):
The VLAN attachment connects the interconnect to your VPC.
Each VLAN attachment generates a unique pairing key. You need this key to create the connection from your PacketFabric source port to Google.
Using the pairing key generated with your VLAN attachment, create a hosted cloud connection from the PacketFabric portal.
Return to the Google Cloud Console and activate the VLAN attachment.
You must establish a BGP session with the Google Cloud Router.
Google recommends that each VLAN attachment used in a production environment has a redundant counterpart.
A redundant VLAN attachment requires its own pairing key, Cloud Router, PacketFabric Hosted Cloud Connection, and BGP session. Redundant VLANs also must be in a different region than the primary VLAN.
