How to get connected via AWS Direct Connect

  • First, decide on the quantity, you may use multiple ports simultaneously for redundancy and added capacity; we will make sure that each port circuit takes a different and redundant path from the other and size (GigE or 10 GigE) of the ports that you need.
  • Second, order the AWS Direct Connect port(s) at the appropriate region US East (Virginia) or US West (Washington or Oregon) using your AWS Management Console.
  • Third, provide us the AWS-issued LOA/CFA (Letter of Authorization/Connecting Facility Assignment) document. It will provide us all the information we need to get you connected and will be used as an attachment to your AWS DC Service Order with us.
  • Fourth, test and turn-up your AWS Direct Connect port(s). Install timeframe can be as quick as just a few days!
