Vocus introduces support for Google Cloud Interconnect

14 February 2022


With the continued acceleration to cloud services Vocus New Zealand is helping enable digital transformation with support for Google Cloud Interconnect through the establishment of a Point of Presence (PoP) in the Vocus datacentre, accelerating access to Google Cloud Platform. The result is that Vocus customers now have the opportunity to experience improved security and greater reliability connecting via the Vocus network to the wide range of products available from Google Cloud.

Vocus offers connectivity, datacentre, cloud infrastructure and applications, information security and connectivity solutions to government and corporate clients across New Zealand. Vocus New Zealand CEO Mark Callander says, “the establishment of the Google Cloud Interconnect onramp in our datacentre comes after Google recently increased its cloud presence in the Australasian region, and will assist New Zealand businesses in their adoption and use of cloud services.”

This Point of Presence (PoP) in the Vocus datacenter supports increased use of network functions, virtualisation, and software-defined networking. Callander notes that Google established its first Cloud Interconnect location in New Zealand in 2021, connecting New Zealand customers directly to its private secure network.

Stephen Kurzeja, Vocus New Zealand CTO says, organisations wanting to accelerate their digital transformation journey will experience improved performance and reliability when connecting via Vocus’s carrier grade network to Google Clouds PoP.

He adds that the establishment of the PoP reinforces Vocus’s commitment to building and operating a carrier grade network that enables the delivery of secure, high-performance network solutions throughout the country.
