Arelion Earns Gold Google Verified Peering Provider Badge

DateApr 25, 2024

The VPP is a Google recognized badging program for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) whose primary goal is to offer Google Cloud customers a simplified alternative to direct peering. This program reinforces Arelion’s ability to provide enterprises with reliable connectivity to cloud services through its #1 ranked Internet backbone network.

As a Google VPP, Arelion empowers enterprises with peering to Google Cloud services via Dedicated Internet Access, enabling customers to access Google with or without the need for border gateway protocol (BGP) or an autonomous system number (ASN). This low-latency public connectivity supports enterprises’ business operations by enabling diverse access to publicly-facing Internet applications hosted on Google Cloud, with the VPP program leaving the complexities of peering arrangements and the management of technically challenging peering connectivity to Arelion.

“Google’s VPP badge verifies Arelion’s ability to connect enterprises to cloud services securely and reliably via the low-latency connectivity available through our global network footprint,” said David Young, Product Manager of IP and Security at Arelion. “We look forward to collaborating closely with Google and leveraging our network’s high standard of quality to provide enterprises with the Google Cloud applications they require for digital innovation and business continuity.”

Arelion already connects its Internet customers to Google with over 50 connections in 41 major cities, ensuring a wide global reach to serve enterprises’ global cloud connectivity requirements. Arelion also provides customers with over 10 terabits of capacity, enabling ample bandwidth for each customer to minimize the risk of network congestion when connecting to Google Cloud services. As a gold-tier Google VPP, Arelion can support Google Cloud customers through its award-winning customer service team.

Google’s gold-tier VPP badge verifies the redundancy of Arelion’s #1 ranked global Internet backbone, AS1299, and the reliability of its high-speed IP Transit, Direct Internet Access (DIA) and Cloud Connect services for service providers, content providers and enterprises.
