Achieving the AWS Networking Competency differentiates Megaport as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with a specific focus on Networking based on scalable, secured, direct connectivity. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS Cloud.

The vast reach of Megaport’s global network footprint increases accessibility to AWS services by enabling AWS Direct Connect in new regions and empowers enterprises with a consumption-based networking model. We’re honored to have achieved AWS Networking Competency status as we continue to develop features to make it even easier to get our customers connected.”
AWS is enabling scalable and flexible solutions to a broad clientele – from startups to global enterprises.
