What is eLynk Express for AWS?

eLynksm Express for AWS makes establishing and managing the connection between a customer’s network and one of the AWS Direct Connect locations easier than ever. eLynksm Express for AWS is just like AWS Direct Connect, but the customer purchases the connection directly from tw telecom, which manages the port, cross connect, as well as the data center charges as part of tw telecom infrastructure. In the original AWS Direct Connect product, those were left up to the customer to manage. By having tw telecom manage the costs, customers enjoy significant cost savings, as well as faster service delivery and a simpler price structure.
