How to Order an Intermarket EVC

Updated by CoreSite


Need to connect your cross country deployments together? Users may do so via the Open Cloud Exchange by creating an Intermarket EVC.

An Intermarket EVC is a Data link virtual connection bridging two network interfaces in different physical markets together to enable communication. Create an Intermarket EVC enables users to connect one or more physically diverse environments together within minutes.

  1. Follow Steps 1 to 4 in the “ordering OCX services” section to navigate to the Port ordering page.
  2. Click on the “EVC” tile and click “continue”.
  3. On the next screen, select the tile that displays “Connect to a service provider or other OCX participant.”
  4. Select the tile that displays “Connect to an OCX Participant” and click “Continue”.


Part 1: Fill out the required data fields in the EVC order form. The process to order an Intermarket EVC is identical to the EVC creation process with a few subtle differences:
