An edge gateway provides routing and other services to a routed organization virtual data center network. You can add an IPv4 or IPv6 edge gateway that connects to one or more external networks.

Note: IPv6 edge gateways support limited services. IPv6 edge gateways support edge firewalls, distribute firewalls, and static routing.


  • For information about the system requirements for deploying an edge gateway, see the NSX Administration Guide.
  • If you want to deploy the edge gateway on a dedicated edge cluster, create and assign an edge cluster to the organization virtual data center. See Working with Edge Clusters.
