Configuration Guide

  • Only Endpoints in the same metro are allowed within an Exchange.
  • There may be multiple instances of an Endpoint type per Exchange except for CenturyLink Cloud, further explained in the next bullet. Barring other constraints, a single user may have multiple Exchanges in the same location.
  • There can only be one CenturyLink Cloud (CLC) Endpoint per account alias, per data center, no matter the number of Exchanges.
  • Once bandwidth for the physical connections (cross connects) between Network Exchange and the end user network for a Colocation/Dedicated Access Endpoint has been established, it cannot be modified without a scheduled service change. Bandwidth over connections is not determined by Network Exchange, but rather, by the physical medium chosen.

For more information, please see the Network Exchange Product page or the Network Exchange FAQ page. For guidance on creating your first Exchange, see the Network Exchange Getting Started Guide.
