Creating a connection between two Oracle Gov locations
Using Control Center, you can create a Lumen® Dynamic Connections Ethernet connection to connect two Oracle Gov locations. To create the connection, you'll need Oracle Cloud identifiers (OCIDs) from Oracle. Be sure to have that information handy to type in (or copy/paste).
To create a connection between two Oracle Gov locations:
Control Center shows the Services console. Use the console to access an inventory of your services, check the status of orders, and manage your services.
In the Service and Ordering Tools box, click Dynamic Connections - Ethernet.
Control Center lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
Click Create Connection.
In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating. (Be sure to use something memorable. This name will appear on your invoice.)
In both the From Connection Type and To Connection Type fields, select Oracle (Gov).
Fill in the information for the connection:
Fill in the Oracle Cloud Identifier (OCID) field for the origination location with the OCID provided by Oracle.
Once you fill in the OCID, Control Center retrieves connection information from Oracle and adds the origination location.
Fill in the Oracle Cloud Identifier (OCID) field for the termination location with the OCID provided by Oracle.
Once you fill in the OCID, Control Center retrieves connection information from Oracle and adds the termination location.
Use the Billing Method buttons to select whether you want monthly or hourly billing for the connection.
In the Class of Service field, select whether you want Basic, Enhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)
Basic (best effort): The service may be oversubscribed on the Lumen network.
Enhanced (mid class): Enhanced EVCs (ethernet virtual circuits) can still be oversubscribed like Basic class of service EVCs; however, traffic is marked with an internal class of service marking which will prioritize your traffic over best-effort traffic during times of congestion. For EVCs with this class of service, bandwidth is not reserved on the Lumen network and traffic will not take priority over real-time traffic in the network.
Dedicated (real time): The quality of service offering with highest priority on the Lumen network. In addition, Lumen reserves the bandwidth for this EVC across the network on each ring that the EVC touches. Once it is dedicated to you, that bandwidth (and the corresponding CE-VLANs) sits in reserve regardless of how much bandwidth you use.
In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection. (You can't change the bandwidth once you create the connection. If you need to choose a different bandwidth after creating a connection, disconnect the connection and create a new one.)
Control Center shows pricing for the bandwidth you selected.
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.)
