Lumen helps customers effortlessly connect to Google services
April 23, 2024

It is now easier for customers to get high-speed, enterprise grade connectivity to their Google services over the Lumen network. Lumen has been named a Google Gold Verified Peering Provider. This means Lumen has been recognized as a key partner in supporting customers with simple connections to their Google services.    

“Any Google service accessible through the internet or direct connections with Google can be reached through Lumen’s expansive network,” said Miriana Martinova, Senior Vice President of Core Network Solutions, Lumen Technologies. “Our global network reach, large on-net building footprint, and massive peering capacity make Lumen a great partner for customers who want exceptional performance from their Google products.”

Google customers can now:

  • Quickly turn up and scale connectivity with Lumen.
  • Reliably connect to Google services via high-speed, enterprise-grade internet for optimal performance.
  • Leave the technical complexities of direct peering to Lumen.

“We are excited to have Lumen as part of the Verified Peering Provider Program,” said Steve Walter, Vice President, Google Global Network Infrastructure. “As a Verified Peering Provider, Lumen will be able to offer its customers an enhanced experience, thanks to our program’s requirements for diverse and reliable connectivity to Google. We look forward to working with Lumen to provide customers with the best possible enterprise-grade experience.”   

Lumen operates one of the most deeply peered networks in the world. As a Google Gold Verified Peering Provider, Lumen can deliver high-performance connectivity to Google services including Google Workspace, Google APIs, Google Cloud APIs, Google Cloud VPN, and Google Public IPs. Lumen’s Internet products are backed by a 99.99% service availability SLA.

Being a Google Verified Peering Provider is just one way that Lumen is working with Google to simplify connectivity for customers. In 2023, Lumen launched ExaSwitch®, a platform created in collaboration with Google and other large cloud providers to dynamically route traffic between large internet and cloud networks through optical switching. ExaSwitch creates an on-demand network connection allowing enterprises to quickly deploy needed capacity across all types of data traffic exchanges.
