Creating a VXC to an MVE Integrated with Cisco SD-WAN

This topic describes how to connect a Virtual Cross Connect (VXC) to Megaport Virtual Edge (MVE) integrated with Cisco SD-WAN.

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).

A VXC is 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 25 VXCs on a single MVE.

To create a VXC

  1. In the Megaport ONE Portal, choose Networking > Services.
  2. Select the Cisco MVE you want to use.
    If you haven’t already created an MVE, see Creating an MVE Integrated with Cisco Overview.
  3. Click Actions and select Add Connection.
    Add Connection
    The New Connection screen displays the MVE name and A-End details.

  4. Select the Cloud VXC connection type and select a cloud destination. CSP VXC connection types

Connecting MVE to MVE

In vManage, 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 MVEs via the Megaport fabric. For specific configuration details, see Connecting MVEs Integrated with Cisco SD-WAN.

Deleting a VXC

You can terminate a VXC directly from vManage.

To delete a VXC (interconnect connectivity)

  1. In vManage, select Configuration > Cloud OnRamp for Multi-Cloud.

  2. Choose Interconnect Connectivity.

  3. Choose a Megaport ONE account.

  4. Select the interconnect gateway and click the ellipsis ().

  5. Select Delete.
