Dimension Data’s Cloud Private Network Connection (CPNC) is an integrated part of our Cloud architecture. It provides our enterprise clients with seamless, secure, high-speed cloud connectivity by avoiding the public Internet when accessing Dimension Data’s Cloud (Public, Hosted Private and Managed Hosting services). This private connectivity increases network throughput and provides better end-user experience with a more consistent network performance than Internet-based connections.
CPNC allows you to establish a dedicated network connection between your network and the Cloud locations, using a direct connect (physical port) or private connect (virtual port) as part of a qualifying partner MPLS network.
