Today, AWS announced the opening of a new AWS Direct Connect location within the Equinix BG1 Bogotá data center in Bogotá, Colombia. By connecting your network to AWS at the new location, you gain private, direct access to all public AWS Regions (except those in China), AWS GovCloud Regions, and AWS Local Zones.
The new Bogotá location offers dedicated 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps connections, with MACsec encryption available for 10 Gbps
The Direct Connect service establishes a private, physical network connection between AWS and your data center, office, or colocation environment. These private connections can provide a more consistent network experience than those made over the public internet.
