Level 3 Communications is a solution provider for Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) new service, AWS Direct Connect, offering dedicated network connectivity and services to support high-bandwidth customer adoption of the AWS platform.
AWS Direct Connect enables enterprises to set up a connection to an AWS region via a dedicated network circuit. Using AWS Direct Connect, enterprises can establish a dedicated connection between AWS and their organization’s data center, colocation facility or main office, thereby increasing bandwidth throughput, improving network consistency and reducing network costs.
“Enterprise adoption of Amazon Web Services is growing in both scale and complexity," said Andrew Crouch, president of sales for Level 3, in a statement. "With this increasing sophistication, many customers want network connectivity options that match their application-specific requirements for performance and security. AWS Direct Connect customers can leverage Level 3’s network to meet the demands of high-end cloud adopters with extensive network reach, bandwidth scale and established connectivity to AWS Direct Connect sites.”
