Building hub and spoke networks with Network Connectivity Center

As global enterprises move their assets into the cloud, they are required to have a unique place to manage the connectivity between their on-premises networks. Network Connectivity Center allows you to interconnect on-premises networks in the hub and spoke model. Moreover, with Network Connectivity Center, you can interconnect networks attached to Cloud VPN, Dedicated Interconnect, Partner Interconnect, and Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) Virtual Router appliances, as shown in Figure 8.34:

Figure 8.34 – Network Connectivity Center overview

As Figure 8.34 shows, Network Connectivity Center is composed of one hub and many spokes, one for each Google Cloud network resource you need to interconnect. The hub provides data transfer service across all spokes, thus interconnecting all the on-premises networks attached. Spokes are attached to Google Cloud network resources such as Cloud...
