Control Center opens the Network Visibility dashboard. On the map, Control Center shows locations with services needing your attention. Tiles show services with high utilization or critical issues, services that are down or have threshold warnings, as well as open tickets and scheduled maintenance for your services. Use the Map View and List View tabs above the tiles to toggle between views.
Click the Dynamic Capacity tile.

Do any of the following to edit the threshold alert:
To change the utilization percentage you want to trigger Dynamic Capacity for, select a percentage from the Threshold list.

To change the hours or time zone you want the threshold alert to trigger Dynamic Capactiy for, select a radio button for the time period: peak hours, off-peak hours, or all hours, then select the time zone you want to use for the hours you selected. (For example, you may want to trigger Dynamic Capacity for a service in Denver, CO only when it exceeds a utilization threshold during peak hours in Mountain Time.)
To change the bandwidth Control Center uses when your threshold is met, do one of the following:
To allow Lumen to select the appropriate bandwidth, change the slider to On.
To specify the bandwidth increase you want to enable when the threshold is met, use the slider to select the bandwidth (2x or 3x).

Click PROCEED WITH ACTIVATION.
Control Center sets the threshold alert with Dynamic Capacity for the service. If the alert is triggered, Control Center emails you a confirmation that Dynamic Capacity has been activated for the service. At the end of the event, Control Center emails you a confirmation that Dynamic Capacity has been deactivated for the service.
