With Dynamic Connections, you can provision real-time, layer-2 network connections between your locations (an Ethernet endpoint device) and partner interconnects, including cloud providers such as AWS, Google, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure/Azure Gov, and Oracle/Oracle Gov. Ethernet Dynamic Connections are billed hourly and require no long-term contracts. Create and manage Ethernet Dynamic Connections using Control Center.
For Ethernet Dynamic Connections to Microsoft Azure, your equipment must support 802.1ad (Q-in-Q). We recommend configuring your router for Q-in-Q before creating your Dynamic Connection in Control Center. Q-in-Q can be difficult to set up. Use the example below to help you set up Q-in-Q.
