Virtual Private Gateway Type-C Deprecation Notice
Type-C Virtual Private Gateways (VPG) will be deprecated on July 31, 2021. After this date, you will no longer be able to create a Type-C VPG.
Customers with existing Type-C VPGs may continue using their Type-C VPGs without interruption. However, please note that some VPG features such as SORACOM Peek packet capture are only available with newer Type-E and Type-F VPGs.
As you will no longer be able to create Type-C VPGs, you may use one of the following alternatives:
- Customers who require the private network connectivity services of SORACOM Canal, Door, or Direct in order to connect their SORACOM Air devices to their private network, may use the newer VPG Type-F option, which provides the same capabilities of the Type-C option as well as support for additional private networking features.
- Customers who do not need private network connectivity services but would still like to maintain a dedicated gateway for their SORACOM Air devices may use the VPG Type-E option, which provides many of the same capabilities as the Type-F option at a greatly reduced cost.
For more information on the differences between each VPG type, refer to the following pages:
