This option provides the ability to connect to your own ECX Fabric assets. You can connect to your organization’s ports to migrate data between locations for redundancy and disaster recovery.
If you have been granted appropriate permissions by the ECX Fabric master admin in your organization, you can assign a source port, destination port and associated VLAN IDs on the same screen to create and auto-approve the connection.
Connect your assets
On the “Connect” page, from the three main connection options, select Connect to Myself.
The page updates to show your service profiles. Select the service profile you want. The preview pane shows an empty connection card, which populates as you build your connection. The progress chart tracks where you are as you advance through the creation process.
Connection Request Workflow
As with all connection requests, follow these main steps:
- Basic information—Select your origin and destination ports
- Connection details—Enter your connection information and destination details
- Speed—Select the connection speed option
- Review—Ensure the connection summary details are correct, then click Submit your order
The success page links you to your “Inventory” page, where you can view the order. The contact email receives two notifications: order creation and when order is provisioned.
