Make networking easier
Connect at Layer 3 in an instant. There’s no need to learn the ins and outs of network engineering. Simply log in to your Megaport account and start building your virtual network in a few clicks. Hassle-free and ready to go, MCR takes the complexity out of networking.
Support your multicloud
Multicloud is the architecture of choice for so many enterprises. With MCR, you can privately peer between leading public Cloud, IaaS and SaaS providers. Having a virtual router located close to cloud onramps means lower latency and improved performance for your critical multicloud workloads.
No hardware needed
There’s no need to install, manage, or maintain any hardware with MCR. Having a virtualised network means you don’t need to rely on infrastructure on premises or in a data centre – it’s all virtual. This equates to saved time, resources, effort, and costs when creating your connections.
Virtual routing for powerful cloud networking
Megaport Cloud Router (MCR) is a virtual routing service that gives your business private connectivity at Layer 3. From any of our Routing Zones, you can connect to the critical cloud and managed services you need – without hardware. MCR allows you to route data to and between various providers and platforms without hair pinning your traffic back to a data centre or your on-premises environment. It’s networking made easy!

Managed Layer 3 Connectivity
We’re evolving virtual networking with the new MCR 2.0 features:
Four speed tiers capable of 1Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps, or 10Gbps routing throughput;
Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) for BGP that allows for fast link failure detection supporting fast failover of routed traffic;
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Multi Exit Discriminator (MED) to support Virtual Cross Connect (VXC)® prioritization that tells autonomous systems (AS) the preferred route to take for performance tuning;
BGP shutdown toggle, so users can quickly turn BGP on or off;
Google API optimization to make it faster and easier to add MCR connections to the Google Cloud Platform and thus remove the need to click between Google and Megaport screens to establish a service; and
BGP peer and BGP prefix route filters for greater control over route advertisements.
