Creating a connection from your location to AWS Hosted Connections
You can create a Dynamic Connection from your location to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Hosted Connections. To create the connection, you'll need your AWS account ID from Amazon. Be sure to have that information handy to type in (or copy/paste).
Note: With Amazon Web Services Hosted Connections, we recommend you create a redundant connection to qualify for better availability SLAs.
To create a connection from your location to AWS Hosted Connections:
Click Orders, then click Dynamic Connections - Ethernet.
Control Center lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
Click Create Connection.
In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.
In the From Connection Typelist, select My Locations.
In the To Connection Type list, select Amazon Web Services (AWS) - Hosted Connections.
Fill in the information for the connection:
From the From Location list, select the connection origination endpoint. (To view a list of available locations, click MY LOCATIONS.)
In the Ce-Vlan field, type an unused VLAN ID (between 1 and 4095). (If you type in a VLAN ID and it's already in use, Control Center highlights it in red.)
In the AWS Account ID field, type your Amazon account ID.
From the To Location list, select where you want your connection to terminate.
In the Billing Method field, select whether you want hourly or monthly billing.
In the Class of Service field, select whether you want Basic, Enhanced, or Dedicated. (Higher classes of service offer higher availability SLAs and allow you to increase traffic prioritization for your EVC.)
In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection.
Control Center shows pricing for the bandwidth you selected.
Review your connection information and then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)
