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.

  3. Click Upgrade. In the window that opens, select the upgraded speed, and then click Order.

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

  4. From AWS, accept the new, upgraded connection.
