Level 3 Offers Direct Connect to Amazon Web Services

Level 3 Communications is a solution provider for Amazon Web Services' new Direct Connect service.

AWS Direct Connect enables enterprises to set up a connection to an AWS region via a dedicated network circuit. Level 3 can provide end-users with 1G and 10G circuits to the AWS cloud at all Direct Connect sites.

Level 3 said its advanced network and cloud services enable an ultra-high availability, end-to-end cloud platform that optimizes business productivity by delivering AWS services over a network that meets the applications' availability, latency and security requirements.

"Enterprise adoption of Amazon Web Services is growing in both scale and complexity. With this increasing sophistication, many customers want network connectivity options that match their application-specific requirements for performance and security," said Andrew Crouch, president of Sales for Level 3. "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."
