Preparations for Using Global Accelerator

Before using Global Accelerator, you need to make the following preparations:

Registering with Huawei Cloud

You need a Huawei Cloud account to access the Global Accelerator console. If you do not have an account, register one first:

  1. Visit the Huawei Cloud official website.
  2. Click Register in the upper right corner.

    Enter the required information. Once the registration is complete, the system automatically redirects you to your personal information page.

Your account will have permissions to access the Global Accelerator service and all other cloud services.

Topping Up Your Account

Global Accelerator is free of charge during the OBT. If you want to purchase an endpoint, ensure that your account has sufficient balance.

  • For details about the price for each endpoint, see the pricing details of the corresponding service.
  • For details about how to top up an account, see Topping Up an Account.

Apply for a Cross-Border Permit (Mandatory in Cross-Border Communication Scenarios)

In accordance with the laws and administrative regulations of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) of the People's Republic of China, only three major operators in the Chinese mainland are allowed for cross-border network communications, and a cross-border permit is required if you carry out business activities outside the Chinese mainland.

If the acceleration area is inside the Chinese mainland, but the endpoint group is outside the Chinese mainland, or the endpoint group is inside the Chinese mainland but the acceleration area is outside the Chinese mainland, you need to apply for a cross-border permit.

  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. On the homepage, click in the upper left corner and choose Networking > Global Accelerator.

    The Global Accelerator page is displayed.

  1. In the navigation pane on the left, click Cross-Border Permit.
