After you order an interconnect, Google sends you and the NOC (technical contact) an email with your LOA-CFAs (one PDF file per interconnect). You must send these LOA-CFAs to your vendor so that they can install your cross connects. If you don't, your interconnects won't get connected.
If you can't find the LOA-CFAs in your email, retrieve them from the Google Cloud Console. You can also respond to your order confirmation email for additional assistance.
Once the status of an interconnect changes to
PROVISIONED, the LOA-CFA is no
longer valid, necessary, or available in the Cloud Console.
