Creating a connection between two Microsoft Azure locations

You can create a Dynamic Connection to connect two Microsoft Azure locations. To create the connection, you'll need ExpressRoute service keys from Microsoft. Be sure to have that information handy to type in (or copy/paste).

Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection.

To create a connection between two Microsoft Azure locations:

  1. From the main menu, select Orders > Dynamic Connections.

    MyLevel3 lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
  1. Click Create Connection.
  1. In the From Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure).

  2. In the To Connection Type field, select Microsoft (Azure).
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. Fill in the two ExpressRoute Service Key fields with the service keys provided by Microsoft. (Note: You can only use a service key that isn't assigned to an active connection.)

      Once you fill in the ExpressRoute service key, MyLevel3 retrieves connection information from Microsoft.

    2. In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection. By default, MyLevel3 selects the lowest bandwidth associated with the service key you entered. You can adjust the bandwidth up/down based on your needs.

      MyLevel3 displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.

    3. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.

  2. Click Next.
  1. 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.)

  2. Click Create Connection.

    MyLevel3 creates the request for the connection and places it in Pending Activation status. From here, you can either view the status of your request (click the list link) or close the window (click Close) to do something else in MyLevel3.
