AARNet4 VPN connections using Shared Azure ports

As an Azure ExpressRoute Connectivity Partner, AARNet has established multiple 10Gbps Private Network connections to Microsoft cloud services.

AARNet delivers AARNet4 Layer-2 or Layer-3 VPN services using these shared 10Gbps ports, managed by AARNet. Services are available at 200Mbps, 500Mbps, 1Gbps, 2Gbps, 5Gbps and 10Gbps to:

  • Melbourne - NextDC M1
  • Sydney - Equinix SY2

(The Azure ExpressRoute shared 10Gbps ports have an oversubscription ratio of 4:1, based on Microsoft's oversubscription policy)

Each connection requires a dedicated BGP session between the customer and Azure. Private peering sessions may use private IP addresses and a private ASN, while Public peering and Microsoft peering require the use of public IP addresses and ASNs.
