Bring-your-own Carriage (BYOC)
Bring Your Own Carrier (BYOC) enables customers to utilise their existing Carrier services. There are two options available for BYOC.
- Over-the-Top (OTT)
- Private Connections
It's important to note that the responsibility of managing BYOC connectivity lies solely with the customer, as does the porting and purchasing of numbers. While IVP ensures the security and reliability of our platform, we do not form part of the contractual relationship for these services.
OTT is delivered on the Platform by default and is the preferred BYOC choice If the existing service is OTT or the current carrier can offer OTT
To provision a BYOC trunk on IVP, simply configure the carrier-provided details (e.g. sip username and password, sip proxy or SBC etc.) and then provision numbers as BYOC numbers on the Platform ready for use.
If the carrier can only do a private connection or the customer wants a private connection for regulatory or compliance reasons, there are two options:
- Cloud Connect
Simply search for SecureCo on Megaport or Equinix Cloud Exchanges and request a connection to the Instance as required.
IMPORTANT: You will need to order cloud Connect directly from Megaport or Equinix.
NOTE: We always recommend Cloud Connect as the preferred option as it is the fastest and best experience for customers.
Cloud Connect is a virtual option and the quickest option to set up as it requires no hardware, physical cabling or routers.
- Physical Interconnect
Alternatively, connect directly with SecureCo regional Points of Presence, via an ethernet port available for the carriage services
IMPORTANT: The Partner or Customer are responsible for hosting any equipment in the data centre including; NTUs, Routers and purchasing the cross connect to SecureCo.
