For use with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect.

A virtual circuit is an isolated network path that runs over one or more physical network connections to provide a single, logical connection between the edge router on the customer’s existing network and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Private virtual circuits support private peering, and public virtual circuits support public peering. For more information, see FastConnect Overview.

Each virtual circuit is made up of information shared between a customer, Oracle, and a provider (if the customer is using FastConnect via a provider). Who fills in a given property of a virtual circuit depends on whether the BGP session related to that virtual circuit goes from the customer’s edge router to Oracle, or from the provider’s edge router to Oracle. Also, in the case where the customer is using a provider, values for some of the properties may not be present immediately, but may get filled in as the provider and Oracle each do their part to provision the virtual circuit.
