Telnyx customers know that the foundation of our service is our global, private network. It’s how we maintain carrier-grade voice quality and reliability, and it’s how we offer true interoperability with other carriers, tandem networks and local PSTNs, both domestic and abroad.

Today, we’re launching a new service to connect your own cloud based applications directly to our network through Virtual Cross Connects (VXCs).

Telnyx leverages VXCs in our architecture to bypass the public internet and connect our network points-of-presence to our core communications infrastructure. The integration of cloud, private network and VXCs creates a secure and low latency environment spanning North America and Europe.

Now, you can spin up your own VXCs in order to connect your cloud environments directly to the Telnyx environment, or—soon—to transport data between your own cloud environments.

Benefits of VXCs

Connect your call systems directly to our communications engine.

  • Bypass the public internet:

    • Lower latency communications
    • Better security
    • More reliable connections
  • Internationalize your application using our network infrastructure:

    • Global reach with a local presence
    • Shorter development time
    • Lower overhead

More about the benefits of VXCs and when to leverage them.

Supported Cloud Providers

Today, we support connecting your AWS virtual private clouds to the Telnyx environment.Soon, we’ll support connecting these providers as well:

  • Microsoft Azure
  • IBM SoftLayer
  • Google Cloud

Setting Up a VXC

Like all Telnyx products, VXCs are initiated and managed in Mission Control, in the new Networking section of Mission Control.


Afterwards, Telnyx will initiate a new connection with your AWS virtual private cloud. You’ll need to follow the setup instructions in our Getting Started guide to finish configuring the connection in the AWS Direct Connect console.
