Creates a new interconnect between a 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 Direct Connect service to tier 2 customers who do not have their own connections. Like a standard connection, an interconnect links the 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 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 Direct Connect partner.
