Creating a connection between a My Location endpoint and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Hosted Connections
Note: With Amazon Web Services Hosted Connections, CenturyLink recommends you create a redundant connection to qualify for better availability SLAs.

To create a dynamic connection between a My Location endpoint and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Hosted Connections:

  1. From the main menu, select Orders > Dynamic Connections.

    MyLevel3 lists all your connections with a status and brief summary for each connection.
  1. Click Create Connection.
  1. In the From Connection Type field, select My Location(s).

  2. In the To Connection Type field, select Hosted Connections – Amazon Web Services (AWS).
  1. Fill in the information for the connection:

    1. From the From Location list, select the connection origination endpoint from the list.

    2. In the CE-VLAN field, type an unused VLAN ID (between 1 and 4095). (If you type in a VLAN ID and it's already in use, MyLevel3 highlights it in red.)

    3. From the To Location list, select where you want your connection to terminate.

    4. In the AWS Account ID field, type your Amazon account ID.

    5. In the Bandwidth field, select the bandwidth for the connection. (MyLevel3 displays pricing for the bandwidth you selected.)

    6. In the Connection Name field, type a name for the connection you're creating.

  2. Click Next.
  1. Review your connection information, then click the I agree with the terms and conditions checkbox. (To enable the checkbox, scroll to the bottom of the terms and conditions.)

  2. Click Create Connection.

    MyLevel3 creates the request for the connection. From here, you can either view the status of your request (click the list link) or close the window (click Close) to do something else in MyLevel3.
