  • Flexible Connectivity

    You can attach all your networking resources (such as VPCs, VPN, Direct Connect, and Cloud Connect connections) to an enterprise router.

  • Lower O&M Costs

    An enterprise router controls the traffic routed among all the connected networks using route tables in a unified way, reducing O&M costs.

Connection Switchover

An enterprise router uses BGP to learn routes, dynamically select or switch between connections.


  • High Reliability

    Multiple connections share loads and work in active/standby mode for enhanced reliability. If one connection fails, the other one can take over automatically.

  • Simplified Management

    Enterprise routers can automatically learn and update routes, eliminating the need to manually configure routes or update routes when there are network changes.

Related Services

East-West Traffic Protection

Enterprise routers divert traffic to cloud firewalls or third-party firewalls for east-west traffic scrubbing.


  • Traffic Isolation

    You can define route tables to isolate traffic.

  • Traffic Control

    You can define route tables to control how traffic is routed.
