Creating a connection between a My Location endpoint and Google

You can create a Dynamic Connection between a My Location endpoint and Google. To create the connection, you'll need a pairing key from Google. Be sure to have that information handy to type in (or copy/paste).

Note: You can only use a pairing key that hasn't been used before. Once you use a pairing key, you'll have to request a new one from Google.

To create a dynamic connection between a My Location endpoint and Google:

  1. From the main menu, select Orders > Dynamic Connections.

    MyLevel3 lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
  1. Click Create Connection.
  1. In the From Connection Type field, select My Location(s).

  2. In the To Connection Type field, select Google.
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. From the From Location list, select the connection origination endpoint from the list.

    2. In the CE-VLAN field, type an unused VLAN ID (between 1 and 4095). (If you type in a VLAN ID and it's already in use, MyLevel3 highlights it in red.)

    3. In the Pairing Key field, type or copy and paste your pairing key provided by Google. (Note: You can only use a pairing key once. Once you use a pairing key, you'll have to request a new one from Google.)

      Once you fill in the pairing key, MyLevel3 retrieves connection information from Google and adds a field so you can select the Google termination location.

    4. In the To Location field, select the Google location where you want to terminate the connection.

    5. In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection.

      MyLevel3 displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.

    6. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.

  2. Click Next.
  1. Review your connection information, then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)

  2. Click Create Connection.

    MyLevel3 creates the request for the connection. From here, you can either view the status of your request (click the list link) or close the window (click Close) to do something else in MyLevel3.

  3. If you selected Create a redundant pair of VLAN attachments when you created the VLAN attachment with Google, repeat steps 3–9 to create another Dynamic Conncection with the second pairing key.
