Last Updated:Aug 18, 2023

A Cloud Enterprise Network (CEN) topology displays the intra-region and inter-region connections between the transit routers that are deployed on a CEN instance based on real-time configurations. This helps you learn about and manage the cloud network in an intuitive way. This topic describes how to use the CEN topology feature.
