Upgrade a Hosted AWS Connection

To perform a bandwidth upgrade, you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. From AWS, delete any existing VIFs on the connection: Amazon - Delete virtual interfaces

  2. From the PacketFabric portal, go to the Hosted Connections page and click the connection to open its side panel.

    Select Actions > Upgrade. In the window that opens, select the upgraded bandwidth, and then click Order Now.

    This will delete and recreate the connection with a higher bandwidth.
