How AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners Enable Access to AWS Direct Connect

AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners help you establish network connectivity between AWS Direct Connect locations and their data center, office, or colocation environment via the following models: Dedicated Connections, Hosted Connections, and Hosted Virtual Interfaces.

Dedicated Connections

Dedicated Connections: 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps or 100 Gbps physical Ethernet ports dedicated to a single customer that supports 50 private or public virtual interfaces (VIF) and 1 transit VIF. To increase capacity, Dedicated Connections can be combined using Link Aggregation Groups. AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners can help you order Dedicated Connections directly from the AWS Console, CLI, or API.

Hosted Connections

Hosted Connections are available from 50 Mbps up to 10 Gbps. You can order Hosted Connections from an AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner approved to support this model. The AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner will provision each Hosted Connection over a network link between themselves and AWS that is shared by multiple customers. The AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner and AWS will limit network traffic on each Hosted Connection to its capacity. AWS ensures that the sum of all Hosted Connections capacities on a network link between the AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner and AWS is less than or equal to the network link capacity.

Only select AWS Partners are approved by AWS to offer capacities from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. To provide these capacities, additional monitoring of the health of the network link between the AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner and AWS is required and must be enabled. A Hosted Connection is only activated when you accept it in the AWS Console, CLI, or API.

Hosted Connections with up to 500 Mbps capacity support one private or public VIF. Hosted Connections of 1 Gbps or more support one private, public, or transit VIF. Customers who need more than one VIF may obtain multiple Hosted Connections or use a Dedicated Connection which provides 50 private or public VIFs and 1 transit VIF.

Hosted Virtual Interfaces (Hosted VIF)

A Hosted VIF is assigned to a different AWS account than the AWS account assigned to the Dedicated Connection, and have no capacity assigned by AWS. Some AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners enable access to AWS Direct Connect by creating Hosted VIFs assigned to your AWS account. A Hosted VIF will not become active until you accept it in the AWS Console, CLI, or API. AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partners provision each Hosted VIF over a network link between them and AWS, shared by multiple customers. Each Hosted VIF has access to all available capacity on the network link in the direction from AWS to the AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner.

It is possible to oversubscribe the shared network link because AWS does not limit network traffic capacity on each Hosted VIF. As a result, AWS no longer allows new AWS Direct Connect Delivery Partner service integrations using Hosted VIFs. AWS recommends you use Dedicated Connections or Hosted Connections if you have workloads sensitive to network congestion.
