Upgrade an Azure ExpressRoute Connection
Microsoft offers multiple options to upgrade your ExpressRoute circuit. You can modify bandwidth, SKU, billing model, and allow classic operations. For more information, see Microsoft - Modifying an ExpressRoute circuit.
From the PacketFabric side, currently the only upgrade path is to increase the speed/capacity to match what you have set from the Azure side.
Upgrades must be initiated from the Azure side first; then you can upgrade the PacktFabric side to match.
Step 1: Upgrade from Azure
Log in to the Azure portal and navigate to the ExpressRoute circuit.
From the menu on the left, select Configuration.
Select a new speed from the Bandwidth menu.
Step 2: Upgrade from PacketFabric
Log in to the PacketFabric portal. From the home page, click Hosted Cloud Connectivity.
Double-click the Azure cloud connection to open its details page.
Click Upgrade in the upper right of the page.
Select the speed you want to upgrade to and then click Upgrade Now.
By default, the next highest speed than what you currently have is selected.
