Any member can apply for the Reselling Program, to enable remote ASs to connect to the Namex peering platform by sharing its connected capacity. Virtual ports are created to enable remote customers to directly peer with Namex members on the peering VLAN or to access other services provided through the Meet-Me Infrastructure.
To become a Reselling Program Partner a separate agreement is needed.
The Reselling Program Partner can enjoy a discount on the Public Peering standard prices, access to specific pricing for VLAN capacities not available with the local peering.
The VLAN capacities available are 100 Mbps, 250 Mbps, 500 Mbps on 1 Gbps Reseller Partner ports and, additionally, 1 Gbps, 2,5 Gbps and 5 Gbps on 10 Gbps Reseller Partner ports.
Reseller Partner port must be configured as a 802.1q trunk port where each resold customer is carried through a separate VLAN. Each customer is then assigned a unique VLAN tag to identify its traffic from others’.
Customer’s traffic is de-multiplexed at the Reseller Platform switch and then forwarded either to the main Switching Platform to access active services or to the Meet-me infrastructure for private interconnects.
