A SoftLayer_Network_Backbone represents a single backbone connection from SoftLayer to the public Internet, from the Internet to the SoftLayer private network, or a link that connects the private networks between SoftLayer's datacenters. The SoftLayer_Network_Backbone data type is a collection of data associated with one of those connections.
The numeric portion of the bandwidth capacity of a SoftLayer backbone. For instance, if a backbone is rated at "1 GigE" capacity then the capacity property of the backbone is 1.
The unit portion of the bandwidth capacity of a SoftLayer backbone. For instance, if a backbone is rated at "10 G" capacity then the capacityUnits property of the backbone is "G".
A backbone's internal identifier.
A backbone's name. This is usually the name of the backbone's network provider followed by a number in case SoftLayer uses more than one backbone from a provider. Backbone provider numbers start with the number one and increment from there.
The internal identifier of the network component that backbone is connected to.
Whether a SoftLayer backbone connects to the public Internet, to the private network, or connecting the private networks of SoftLayer's datacenters. Type is either the string "public", "private", or "private-interconnect".
