The switching platform supports a public peering VLAN, associated with an IPv4 subnet and an IPv6 subnet. We operate a RS service on two redundant platforms (OpenBGPd and Bird) to facilitate setting up BGPv4 sessions and receive origin validated network prefixes.
We support 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 100 Gbps and 200 Gbps physical ports.
Members can add redundancy to their public peering connection by either:
Supported interfaces and cabling
In order to protect the mutual peering infrastructure and to guarantee efficient use of its resources a security policy is applied to any member port by means of ACLs. A single, unique customer MAC address is allowed behind any logical port and traffic is allowed for the following Ethertypes:
Two independent Route Server platforms are available on the peering VLAN, running OpenBGPd and BIRD respectively.
Both platforms provide automatic input prefix filtering and export policy specification:
Several additional services are available on the peering VLAN:
