AWS Direct Connect gives you the ability to create private network connections between your datacenter, office, or colocation environment and AWS.
We recently announced new gigabit connectivity options for AWS Direct Connect with Hosted Connections with 1, 2, 5, or 10 Gbps of capacity. Today, with the launch of the AWS Direct Connect Service Delivery Program, AWS Direct Connect Service Delivery Partners are exclusively authorized to provision AWS Direct Connect 1, 2, 5 and 10 Gbps Hosted Connections.
In order to qualify, all APN Partners must meet the new AWS Direct Connect Service Delivery Program requirements, complete validation by AWS, and enable monitoring of the network link between the partner and AWS. To learn more about the specific AWS Direct Connect services an APN Partner is approved for, see the AWS Direct Connect Partners page.
