This site is intended for network operators, including Internet Service Providers and Internet backbone networks.
Google works closely with network operators to deliver Google content and services efficiently and cost-effectively. Google aims to deliver our services with high performance, high reliability, and low latency for users, in a manner that respects Open Internet principles.
This site explains how operators can interconnect their networks with Google, via peering and/or Google Global Cache, to provide bandwidth savings on their network and performance improvements for their users.
How does Google deliver traffic to users?
In the core:
- We invest and build our global backbone network to connect our data centers and transport traffic to Internet aggregation points
- We carry traffic as far as possible on our own network
At the edge:
- We peer directly with access network operators and ISPs
- Google treats all operators equally with an open, settlement-free peering policy
Beyond the edge:
- We deploy the Google Global Cache platform in access providers' networks to deliver content even closer to users, and reduce transport costs for operators
