Earlier this year we announced the advanced networking demo series. In this blog we will showcase two recent videos that were added to the playlist and what you can expect to learn from them.

Advanced Networking Demo series: Cloud Interconnect

The new videos both touch on the topic of Cloud Interconnect, which allows you to provision high-speed stable links between on-premises and Google Cloud environments. 

Cloud Interconnect initially consisted of Dedicated and Partner Interconnects. Then, in May 2023, we  announced an additional member to the family: Cross-Cloud Interconnect. With Cross-Cloud Interconnect, you can establish high-bandwidth direct links between Google Cloud and other cloud providers.

The advanced networking playlist was updated with two videos on the topics, let’s check out what those videos are about.

The opening section covers the overall purpose and scope of Cloud Interconnect, and the scale of Google’s global backbone. The second section introduces you to the Cross-Cloud Interconnect offering and talks about its capabilities and enhancements.


In the final section, there’s a hands-on configuration demo that walks you through how to set up a Cross-Cloud Interconnect link between Google Cloud and Azure.
