And keep in mind that while the SIX and PAIX-SEA are directly connected,
the exchanges are on different VLANs from the perspective of a PAIX-SEA
If you connect on the SIX side, you can only reach the SIX fabric. No
If you connect on the PAIX-SEA side, you can reach both the SIX fabric and
the PAIX-SEA fabric via a single router port. For MRC talk to an S&D rep.
