Networking Quick Start - Enterprise Users

This topic provides basic workflows for you to get set up and create some of the most common configurations.

Get your account set up

Before you can create anything with Megaport ONE, you need to create an account and set up some administrative details. These are the essential steps.

Provision services

To set up network services with Megaport ONE, you need either a Port, an MCR, or an MVE.

Port – Connects your equipment to Megaport ONE through 1 G or 10 G fiber interfaces (100 G is available in some locations). With a configured Port, you can establish connections to other Ports, CSPs, or IXs.

MCR – A Layer 3 capable virtual router hosted by Megaport in cloud hotspot locations worldwide. An MCR does not require a Port, but you can connect to one as needed.

MVE – An on-demand Network Function Virtualization (NFV) service that supports branch-to-cloud connectivity on SD-WAN platforms. An MVE works as a gateway to connect enterprise SD-WAN enabled sites to the Megaport ecosystem, providing cloud-neutral, direct, and secure access to its extensive platform of cloud providers and other services. An MVE does not require a Port, but you can connect to one as needed.

Through the Portal, you can set up your complete end-to-end configuration and add those services to your order, and then proceed through the ordering process.
