Global network connection can be a challenge to businesses in different sizes especially that you need to comply with the strict inter-connectivity regulations.
Alibaba Cloud cross border network solution can help enterprises with business in global market to face the challenge. In this tutorial, we will introduce Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN)which can help you to connect global locations for your businesses.
CEN provides a hybrid and distributed global network ideal for enterprise users with high demand on network coverage and can be used to facilitate communication between VPC to VPC and VPC to IDC. Routing information in CEN can be learned and distributed automatically, which allows CEN to achieve fast routing convergence and improved network quality and security.
With the easy-to-use CEN, you can share bandwidth package by regions, communicate with each network instance with high speed and low latency.
Last mile connectivity provides a critical component of a global network. Alibaba Cloud's SD-WAN product Smart Access Gateway, relies on a combination on a Highly Available hardware deployed to customer premises and a set of PoPs deployed globally to interconnect these locations with Alibaba Cloud's global backbone network.
Backup connectivity generally flows through the internet. Even after employing highly available and redundant networking products from Alibaba Cloud, clients wanting to have another security net for network disconnects can employ Alibaba Cloud's VPN gateway services to provide an extra backup in the highly unlikely event of a CEN failure.

Scaling any network is not an easy feat and comes with significant challenges. It's important that it can be deployed globally, as even if your business is currently focused on one region or country, it is likely to have global ambitions, and your network should not hamper these. Flexibility is also a vital network attribute – can it grow as your business does? Will it allow you to allocate bandwidth resources across regions and scale at any time? This will help to provision for a blog post or video that generates high traffic or a sales day that puts your e-commerce facilities to the test.
