If you are in S&D/PAIX's facility, you have two options for connecting to
- direct to the SIX core via the fiber-meet-me-room, thus no VLAN. You
won't get access to the PAIX-SEA fabric with this method, but if what
you really want is the SIX, this is the way to go.
- direct to the PAIX-SEA switch, in which case you'll need to instruct
S&D to enable your port to also have access to the SIX fabric. Your
router will have two VLAN interfaces on the port, one for PAIX-SEA and
one for the SIX.
Feel free to direct further questions to info at seattleix.net if you like.
