Creating a VXC to an MVE Integrated with VMware

This topic describes how to connect a Virtual Cross Connect (VXC) that terminates on a Megaport Virtual Edge (MVE).

With MVE configured, you can create VXCs to connect to services on the Megaport network without the need for any physical infrastructure. A VXC is essentially a private point-to-point Ethernet connection between an A-End (your MVE) and a B-End (one of the destination types). As VXCs are Layer 2, they are mapped with a VLAN ID on each end.

You can order VXCs to reach any destination in the Megaport network. You can connect up to 24 VXCs on a single MVE.

To create a VXC

  1. In the Megaport Portal, go to the Services page and select the MVE you want to use.

  2. If this is the first connection for the MVE, click the Cloud tile that matches the VXC type. The tile is a shortcut to the configuration page. Alternatively, click +Connection and select a cloud destination:

Connecting a VXC between MVEs

In the Megaport Portal, you can create a VXC (interconnect connectivity) between MVEs at two or more Megaport locations. The VXC links the SD-WAN branch locations connected to these edge MVEs via the Megaport fabric, without traversing the public internet for the MVE to MVE connectivity. For specific configuration details, see Connecting MVEs.
