The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

From Cisco IOS XE Release 17.5 and Cisco vManage Release 20.5, you can instantiate a Cisco SD-WAN edge device within the fabric of a Software-Defined Cloud Interconnect (SDCI) provider and connect a branch location to this edge device through the SD-WAN fabric. From this edge device, you can create software-defined interconnects to other Cisco SD-WAN edge devices in the SDCI provider fabric, or to public or private clouds. Thus, the edge devices in the SDCI provider fabric serve as Interconnect Gateways.
The software-defined interconnects link branch locations, or link branch locations to cloud service providers. The interconnects provide dedicated private Layer 2 connectivity with SLA-backed assured performance bandwidth and 99.999% availability. Short haul interconnects link branch locations or a branch location and a cloud onRamp in the same region. Long haul interconnects link branch locations in different regions, or a branch location in one region to a cloud onRamp in another region.
Cisco vManage provides a single UI portal through which you can instantiate the edge device in the SDCI fabric and create the software-defined interconnects.
