Creating a connection between a My Location endpoint and Google

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:

Dynamic Connections (showing list view)
Dynamic Connections (Create Connection)
  1. In the From Connection Type field, select My Location(s).
  1. In the To Connection Type field, select Google.
Dynamic connections create connection my location to google select endpoints
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. From the From Location list, select the connection origination endpoint. (To see a list of your available endpoints, hover over the i icon, then click View Available Locations.)

    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, Control Center 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 Billing Method field, select whether you want hourly or monthly billing.

    6. In the Class of Service field, select whether you want Basic, Enhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)

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

      Control Center displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.

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

  1. 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.)
