Methods

NameDescription
Public Method AllocateConnectionOnInterconnect(AllocateConnectionOnInterconnectRequest) Creates a hosted connection on an interconnect.

Allocates a VLAN number and a specified amount of bandwidth for use by a hosted connection on the given interconnect.

Public Method AllocateConnectionOnInterconnectAsync(AllocateConnectionOnInterconnectRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the AllocateConnectionOnInterconnect operation.
Public Method AllocatePrivateVirtualInterface(AllocatePrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest) Provisions a private virtual interface to be owned by a different customer.

The owner of a connection calls this function to provision a private virtual interface which will be owned by another AWS customer.

Virtual interfaces created using this function must be confirmed by the virtual interface owner by calling ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterface. Until this step has been completed, the virtual interface will be in 'Confirming' state, and will not be available for handling traffic.

Public Method AllocatePrivateVirtualInterfaceAsync(AllocatePrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the AllocatePrivateVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method AllocatePublicVirtualInterface(AllocatePublicVirtualInterfaceRequest) Provisions a public virtual interface to be owned by a different customer.

The owner of a connection calls this function to provision a public virtual interface which will be owned by another AWS customer.

Virtual interfaces created using this function must be confirmed by the virtual interface owner by calling ConfirmPublicVirtualInterface. Until this step has been completed, the virtual interface will be in 'Confirming' state, and will not be available for handling traffic.

Public Method AllocatePublicVirtualInterfaceAsync(AllocatePublicVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the AllocatePublicVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method ConfirmConnection(ConfirmConnectionRequest) Confirm the creation of a hosted connection on an interconnect.

Upon creation, the hosted connection is initially in the 'Ordering' state, and will remain in this state until the owner calls ConfirmConnection to confirm creation of the hosted connection.

Public Method ConfirmConnectionAsync(ConfirmConnectionRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ConfirmConnection operation.
Public Method ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterface(ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest) Accept ownership of a private virtual interface created by another customer.

After the virtual interface owner calls this function, the virtual interface will be created and attached to the given virtual private gateway, and will be available for handling traffic.

Public Method ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterfaceAsync(ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ConfirmPrivateVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method ConfirmPublicVirtualInterface(ConfirmPublicVirtualInterfaceRequest) Accept ownership of a public virtual interface created by another customer.

After the virtual interface owner calls this function, the specified virtual interface will be created and made available for handling traffic.

Public Method ConfirmPublicVirtualInterfaceAsync(ConfirmPublicVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the ConfirmPublicVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method CreateConnection(CreateConnectionRequest) Creates a new connection between the customer network and a specific AWS Direct Connect location.

A connection links your internal network to an AWS Direct Connect location over a standard 1 gigabit or 10 gigabit Ethernet fiber-optic cable. One end of the cable is connected to your router, the other to an AWS Direct Connect router. An AWS Direct Connect location provides access to Amazon Web Services in the region it is associated with. You can establish connections with AWS Direct Connect locations in multiple regions, but a connection in one region does not provide connectivity to other regions.

Public Method CreateConnectionAsync(CreateConnectionRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the CreateConnection operation.
Public Method CreateInterconnect(CreateInterconnectRequest) Creates a new interconnect between a AWS Direct Connect partner's network and a specific AWS Direct Connect location.

An interconnect is a connection which is capable of hosting other connections. The AWS Direct Connect partner can use an interconnect to provide sub-1Gbps AWS Direct Connect service to tier 2 customers who do not have their own connections. Like a standard connection, an interconnect links the AWS Direct Connect partner's network to an AWS Direct Connect location over a standard 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps Ethernet fiber-optic cable. One end is connected to the partner's router, the other to an AWS Direct Connect router.

For each end customer, the AWS Direct Connect partner provisions a connection on their interconnect by calling AllocateConnectionOnInterconnect. The end customer can then connect to AWS resources by creating a virtual interface on their connection, using the VLAN assigned to them by the AWS Direct Connect partner.

Public Method CreateInterconnectAsync(CreateInterconnectRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the CreateInterconnect operation.
Public Method CreatePrivateVirtualInterface(CreatePrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest) Creates a new private virtual interface. A virtual interface is the VLAN that transports AWS Direct Connect traffic. A private virtual interface supports sending traffic to a single virtual private cloud (VPC).
Public Method CreatePrivateVirtualInterfaceAsync(CreatePrivateVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the CreatePrivateVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method CreatePublicVirtualInterface(CreatePublicVirtualInterfaceRequest) Creates a new public virtual interface. A virtual interface is the VLAN that transports AWS Direct Connect traffic. A public virtual interface supports sending traffic to public services of AWS such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
Public Method CreatePublicVirtualInterfaceAsync(CreatePublicVirtualInterfaceRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the CreatePublicVirtualInterface operation.
Public Method DeleteConnection(DeleteConnectionRequest) Deletes the connection.

Deleting a connection only stops the AWS Direct Connect port hour and data transfer charges. You need to cancel separately with the providers any services or charges for cross-connects or network circuits that connect you to the AWS Direct Connect location.

Public Method DeleteConnectionAsync(DeleteConnectionRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the DeleteConnection operation.
Public Method DeleteInterconnect(DeleteInterconnectRequest) Deletes the specified interconnect.
Public Method DeleteInterconnectAsync(DeleteInterconnectRequest, CancellationToken) Initiates the asynchronous execution of the DeleteInterconnect operation.
