A connection is the primary object connecting two points, such as a connection between ports or routing instances.
To create a connection in Equinix Fabric, go to Connections and click Create Connection. Select the type of connection you want to make and follow the workflow. When you are ready, submit your order. Based on your requirements, you can create Layer 2 or Layer 3 connections. You can connect to Service Providers, Yourself (Internal), Another Fabric Customer, or Another Equinix Customer.
To view your current connections, go to Connections and click Connections Inventory. For more information, see Connections Inventory.
