Virtual Cross Connects (VXCs)

VXCs are private, point-to-point, Ethernet pseudo-wires presented as a Layer 2 VLAN between two endpoints. The originating (or A-End) of a VXC is always a port owned by the customer ordering the VXC. The B end can be any of the four destination types that are described in more detail here.  All VXCs have a large MTU, support Q-in-Q, and are transparent to most protocols.
