We will connect to Nawas to test/use their DDoS mitigation service over our existing physical connection at AMS-IX in Amsterdam.
This effectively means connecting to two separate layer-2 networks over the same port, which involves the use of Vlan / 802.1q tags on the port.
This task will track 2 actions:
- Request AMS-IX change our connection from current untagged mode to use a vlan-based handoff.
- This will need to be a co-ordinated change with us and AMS-IX engineers, and will involve some interruption during the change.
- Once complete we can request a new private interconnect (second Vlan) from AMS-IX on the same port to connect to NaWas.
- Following this we can provision the service from Nawas for testing.
