Link Aggregation Groups

If more data transfer throughput is needed, multiple connections (or ports) between enterprise and the DX location may be set up to create Link Aggregation Groups (LAG). After setting this up, traffic is load-balanced across the ports at the level of individual packet flows. All ports are simultaneously active and are represented by a single BGP session.

Direct Connect Gateway

To establish connectivity that spans Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) across multiple AWS Regions, customers no longer need to establish multiple BGP sessions for each VPC. Direct Connect Gateway reduces administrative workload as well as the load on network devices. This feature allows customers to connect to any of the participating VPCs from any Direct Connect location, further reducing the costs of using AWS services across worldwide regions.
