Microsoft Azure Peering Service aims to improve connectivity to Microsoft Public Services such as Office 365, Dynamics 365, Teams, or other SaaS products running on Azure. Customer traffic takes the shortest path into the Microsoft network from the nearest edge Point of Presence (PoP).
As a Microsoft validated partner with dual redundant peering connections in North America, Lumen Internet Services are optimized for Azure SaaS. Microsoft Azure Peering Service is automatically compatible with new and existing Lumen® Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) services configured with a BGP session, so customers are free to use it without engaging Lumen or paying any incremental costs.
Today’s enterprises require application-driven, cloud-ready networking ecosystems capable of rapidly responding to changing business needs as bandwidth demands continue to grow. DIA combines vital business Internet features with maximum global reach and scalability.
Lumen has built it into DIA services configured with a BGP session, so it simply needs to be enabled through Microsoft. There is no additional cost to your business.
A faster, more reliable connection can positively affect the experience of your employees and customers. To maximize internal operations, every transaction needs to take place securely, reliably and in real time—no matter where your employees, customers or suppliers are located.
Enterprises looking for Internet-first access to the cloud, considering SD-WAN architecture, or experiencing high usage of Microsoft SaaS products need robust, high-performing connectivity.
Lumen’s connectivity is optimized for high reliability and minimal latency from cloud services to the end-user location. Microsoft interconnects with our edge locations. On each continent, interconnection supports failover across two routers and multiple locations.
As a value-added service, customers can opt for Peering Service telemetry such as user latency measures to the Microsoft network, BGP route monitoring, and alerts against leaks and hijacks by registering the Peering Service connection directly in the Azure portal.
