Amazon Web Services – Direct Connect
AWS Direct Connect grants to make a private system association from our system to AWS area. It utilizes 802.1q VLANs, which can be divided into different virtual interfaces to get to open assets utilizing a similar association. This outcomes in diminished system cost and expanded transfer speed. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured whenever according to the necessity.
Necessities to Use AWS Direct Connect
Our system must meet one of the accompanying conditions to utilize AWS Direct Connect −
Our system ought to be in the AWS Direct Connect area. Visit this connect to think about the accessible AWS Direct Connect locationshttps://aws.amazon.com/directconnect/.
We ought to work with an AWS Direct Connect accomplice who is an individual from the AWS Partner Network (APN). Visit this connect to know the rundown of AWS Direct Connect accomplices − https://aws.amazon.com/directconnect/
Our specialist co-op must be compact to interface with AWS Direct Connect.
Furthermore, our system must meet the accompanying essential conditions −
Associations with AWS Direct Connect requires single mode fiber, 1000BASE-LX (1310nm) for 1 gigabit Ethernet, or 10GBASE-LR (1310nm) for 10 gigabit Ethernet. Auto Negotiation for the port must be impaired. Support for 802.1Q VLANs over these associations ought to be accessible.
System must help Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and BGP MD5 verification. Alternatively, we may arrange Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD).
