Creating a connection from your location to AWS Hosted Connections
Using Control Center, you can create a Dynamic Connection from your location (from your list of available UNIs) 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 and status for each, 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.)
Basic (best effort): The service may be oversubscribed on the Lumen network.
Enhanced (mid class): Enhanced EVCs (ethernet virtual circuits) can still be oversubscribed like Basic class of service EVCs; however, traffic is marked with an internal class of service marking which will prioritize your traffic over best-effort traffic during times of congestion. For EVCs with this class of service, bandwidth is not reserved on the Lumen network and traffic will not take priority over real-time traffic in the network.
Dedicated (real time): The quality of service offering with highest priority on the Lumen network. In addition, Lumen reserves the bandwidth for this EVC across the network on each ring that the EVC touches. Once it is dedicated to you, that bandwidth (and the corresponding CE-VLANs) sits in reserve regardless of how much bandwidth you use.
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.)
Click Create Connection.
Control Center creates the request for the connection and places it in Pending Activation status. From here, you can either view the status of your request (click the list link) or close the window (click Close) to do something else in Control Center.
