Frequently Asked Questions

Which cloud providers does cloud networking integrate into?

China Telecom Americas’ ECP offers integration into the APIs of some of the world’s top providers. These include: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), Alibaba Cloud and Tencent Cloud.

How much time does it take to provision service?

Provisioning time for different types of deployments can vary. On average, it usually takes one week to configure cloud-to-cloud links within a CT interconnection data center. To provision a data center to cloud link within the CT interconnection network, it takes two weeks.

How does cloud networking solutions support private cloud environments?

In data centers with a CT cloud exchange point-of-presence, a cross connect is required. This connect is between the CT interconnect PoP and the customer’s rack. For on-prem environments a local MSTP is required to connect to the nearest CT cloud PoP.

How does CTA cloud networking solutions support multi-site, multi-cloud environment?

Customers can quickly set up an any-to-any connection. They can do this by connecting to the closest CT Cloud PoP. There are three ways to do this: MSTP, Internet VPN, and Cross Connect.

Existing customers will be assigned a dedicated trunk on the MPLS PE router. This trunk will be used to send traffic between MPLS VPN sites and CSPs nodes. This connection will be established using layer 3.
