You can create a Dynamic Connection between two of your locations.

To create a connection between two of your locations:

Dynamic Connections (showing Ethernet tab)
Dynamic Connections (Create Ethernet Connection)
  1. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.
  1. In both the From Connection Type and To Connection Type lists, select My Locations.
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. From the From Location list, select the connection origination endpoint. (To view a list of available locations, click MY LOCATIONS.)

    2. In the Ce-Vlan field, type an unused VLAN ID (between 1 and 4095). (If you type in a VLAN ID and it's already in use, Control Center highlights it in red.)

    3. From the To Location list, select the connection termination endpoint. You can't select the same endpoints for the From Location and To Location. (To view a list of available locations, click MY LOCATIONS.)

    4. In the Ce-Vlan field, type an unused VLAN ID (between 1 and 4095).

    5. In the Billing Method field, select whether you want hourly or monthly billing.

    6. In the Class of Service field, select whether you want BasicEnhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)

    7. In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection.

      Control Center shows pricing for the bandwidth you selected.

    8. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.
  1. Review your connection information and then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)
