After you purchase a bandwidth plan, the system automatically associates the bandwidth plan with a Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) instance. If a bandwidth plan under your account is disassociated from CEN instances, you can perform the operations in this topic to re-associate the bandwidth plan with a CEN instance. You must associate a bandwidth plan with a CEN instance before you can create a cross-region connection.

Prerequisites

You must select two areas to be connected when you purchase a bandwidth plan. The area pairs of all bandwidth plans that are associated with the same CEN instance must be unique. For example, if the CEN instance is associated with a bandwidth plan that connects mainland China to mainland China, you cannot associate the CEN instance with another bandwidth plan that connects mainland China to mainland China. However, you can associate the CEN instance with a bandwidth plan that connects mainland China to North America.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the CEN console.
  2. On the Instances page of the CEN console, find the CEN instance that you want to manage and click its ID.
  3. On the CEN details page, click the Bandwidth Plans tab, find the bandwidth plan that you want to manage, and then click Bind in the Actions column.
  4. In the Associate with Bandwidth Plan message, confirm the bandwidth plan that you want to associate and click OK.
