Upgrade a virtual WAN from Basic to Standard
This article helps you upgrade a virtual WAN that was created using the Basic type (SKU), to Standard. When a virtual WAN type is Basic, all hubs within the virtual WAN are configured as Basic hubs. A Basic hub is limited to site-to-site VPN functionality only.
When you upgrade from Basic to Standard, all the hubs within the virtual WAN are upgraded to Standard hubs. Standard hubs support ExpressRoute, point-to-site (User VPN), a full mesh hub, and VNet-to-VNet transit through the Azure hubs.
The following table shows the configurations available for each WAN type:
|Virtual WAN type||Hub type||Available configurations|
|Basic||Basic||Site-to-site VPN only|

You can upgrade from Basic to Standard, but can't revert from Standard back to Basic.
On the page for your virtual WAN, select Configuration to open the Configuration page.
For the Virtual WAN type, select Standard from the drop-down.
Understand that if you upgrade to a Standard virtual WAN, you can't revert back to a Basic virtual WAN. Select Confirm if you want to upgrade. Then, click Save.
Once the change has been saved, your virtual WAN and the hubs within it are updated to Standard.
