Adding a Cloud connector
You'll need the following to make use of your Cloud Connector.
- A Telstra Next IP® network. If you don't have one, contact us to begin the purchasing process. This could take up to 10 business days.
- A cloud on Cloud Sight. You'll need to have added a new or existing cloud. Adding a new cloud may incur fees. Pricing will depend on your choice of cloud service.
After your Cloud Connector is added to Cloud Sight, you'll need to link it to your Next IP network and one or more clouds. More details can be found in the follow-up steps.
- Additional costs may apply when linking your Cloud Connector to a cloud. e.g. You'll need to purchase an Azure ExpressRoute for linking Cloud Connector to an Azure cloud.
- Currently the Cloud Connector only supports private peering.
Adding a new Cloud Connector
1. From the + Add service dropdown on the top right of the page, under the title Add new service, select Cloud Connector. This takes you to the 'Add Cloud Connector' form.
2. Set up your Cloud Connector details.
- Enter a name for the Cloud Connector

Note that you can upgrade your bandwidth allocation at any time but cannot downgrade below your initial selection until the end of the contract term.
