Adding a connection between two Microsoft Azure locations

Here’s an example below with a Cisco router.

You’ll assign the outer tag in NaaS Manager and the inner tag in the Azure portal (peering VLAN).

‘Primary EVC VLAN – 100 - NaaS Manager
‘Secondary EVC VLAN – 200 - NaaS Manager
‘Private Peering – VLAN 300 - Azure portal
‘MSFT Peering – VLAN 400 - Azure portal


interface GigabitEthernet0/1.100300

  encapsulation dot1Q 100 second-dot1q 300 ‘Azure Private primary peer
  description "Cloud Connect"
  ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.252


interface GigabitEthernet0/1.200300

  encapsulation dot1Q 200 second-dot1q 300
‘Azure Private secondary peer
  description "Cloud Connect"
  ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.252


interface GigabitEthernet0/1.100400
  encapsulation dot1Q 100 second-dot1q 400
‘MSFT primary peer
  description "Cloud Connect"
  ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 255.255.255.252
