Enabling PLAS (EC)

Scenarios

This section describes how to enable a PLAS Ethernet connection.

Procedure

  1. Contact us by sending us an email or calling us. Network Service Provider will help you set up an Ethernet connection Redundant, Light, Secure Cloud Connect between Open Telekom Cloud and your data center, office, or collocation environment by using the required bandwidth, such as 100 Mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s. After the connection is created, Network Service Provider notifies you of related parameters, for example, Line ID (the identification number of the Ethernet connection) and S-tag (tags used to isolate different users on the carrier network).
  2. Collect information and submit the application.
    1. Collect information of parameters for enabling Direct Connect.
