Changes This release adds MACsec support to AWS Direct Connect
Changes This release supports the virtual interface failover test, which allows you to verify that traffic routes over redundant virtual interfaces when you bring your primary virtual interface out of service.
Changes This release adds a service provider field for physical connection creation and provides a list of available partner providers for each Direct Connect location.
Changes Tags will now be included in the API responses of all supported resources (Virtual interfaces, Connections, Interconnects and LAGs). You can also add tags while creating these resources.
Changes This release adds support for AWS Direct Connect customers to use AWS Transit Gateway with AWS Direct Connect gateway to route traffic between on-premise networks and their VPCs.
Changes Direct Connect gateway enables you to establish connectivity between your on-premise networks and Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) in any commercial AWS Region (except in China) using AWS Direct Connect connections at any AWS Direct Connect location. This release enables multi-account support for Direct Connect gateway, with multi-account support for Direct Connect gateway, you can associate up to ten VPCs from any AWS account with a Direct Connect gateway. The AWS accounts owning VPCs and the Direct Connect gateway must belong to the same AWS payer account ID. This release also enables Direct Connect Gateway owners to allocate allowed prefixes from each associated VPCs.
Changes Exposed a new available port speeds field in the DescribeLocation api call.
Changes Documentation updates for AWS Direct Connect
Changes This release enables DirectConnect customers to have logical redundancy on virtual interfaces within supported DirectConnect locations.
Changes This release adds support for Jumbo Frames over AWS Direct Connect. You can now set MTU value when creating new virtual interfaces. This release also includes a new API to modify MTU value of existing virtual interfaces.
Changes 1. awsDeviceV2 field is introduced for Connection/Lag/Interconnect/VirtualInterface/Bgp Objects, while deprecating the awsDevice field for Connection/Lag/Interconnect Objects. 2. region field is introduced for VirtualInterface/Location objects
Changes AWS DirectConnect now provides support for Global Access for Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) via a new feature called Direct Connect Gateway. A Direct Connect Gateway will allow you to group multiple Direct Connect Private Virtual Interfaces (DX-VIF) and Private Virtual Gateways (VGW) from different AWS regions (but belonging to the same AWS Account) and pass traffic from any DX-VIF to any VPC in the grouping.
Changes This update will introduce the ability for Direct Connect customers to take advantage of Link Aggregation (LAG). This allows you to bundle many individual physical interfaces into a single logical interface, referred to as a LAG. This makes administration much simpler as the majority of configuration is done on the LAG while you are free to add or remove physical interfaces from the bundle as bandwidth demand increases or decreases. A concrete example of the simplification added by LAG is that customers need only a single BGP session as opposed to one session per physical connection.
Changes API Update for IPv6 for Direct Connect.
Changes AWS Direct Connect provides three new APIs to support basic tagging on Direct Connect resources.
