Connection speeds up to 100 Gbps

AWS Direct Connect is available in speeds starting at 50 Mbps and scaling up to 100 Gbps, so you can find the right connection for you.

MACsec and IPsec Encryption options

Add extra protection to communications between your data centers, branch offices, or colocation facilities with multiple encryption options. Secure your 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps connections with native IEEE 802.1AE (MACsec) point-to-point encryption at select locations. AWS Site-to-Site VPN is also available for secure connections using IPsec (IP security).

AWS Direct Connect SiteLink creates private, end-to-end network connections between the offices, data centers, and colocation facilities in your global network. Once you have made connections at two or more AWS Direct Connect locations, you can turn the SiteLink feature on (or off) with a simple configuration change using the AWS Management Console, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), or APIs. In minutes, a global, reliable, and private network is ready for use.

Multiple deployment options

Dedicated Connections create links to AWS using a 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, or 100 Gbps Ethernet port. AWS Direct Connect Partners provide Hosted connections using pre-established network links between themselves and AWS, and are available from 50 Mbps up to 10 Gbps.
