AWS Direct Connect + Meraki BGP



Our ISP has recently provided us with a L2 AWS Direct Connect connection. We are required to configure the BGP side of things to get this link operational.


Is the BETA BGP Meraki implementation stable?

Has anyone configured a AWS Direct Connect connection using their Meraki? Was it fairly straight forward?


Cheers, M

Curious: What size of AWS DX are you doing? 

@Welles - Just a 100MB

Further to my original question - If I was to have 2 WAN interfaces will this be configured for:

1. Both interfaces?

2. WAN 1?

3. Select which interface you want?

We have recently install or added a vMX100 to our AWS VPC. It was straightforward as long as you remember to use the token within 1 hour 🙂 "Read the documentation if you don't know better" :-).

There are some limitation on what you can do but it was not a showstopper in our case.


I have only hear rumours regarding Meraki will start supporting BGP features . That will be great since that will mean we can get a fully HA setup towards AWS instead of this single point of failure. So good look.


Best Regard

Were you able to get AWS DX implemented?  If so, what does your topology look like and what has your experience with it been like so far?
