Peering @ BCIX

Connect directly to the Internet Exchange platform in Berlin.

This way you can exchange data quickly and directly
with cloud providers, access providers (regional/global), carriers or Tier-1, content providers and content delivery networks (CDN).

How peering works

Peering is the connection between networks.

At an Internet Exchange (IX) this is called "Public Peering".

To establish a peering connection, the networks to be connected require a good knowledge of BGP, the Border Gateway Protocol.

This protocol enables the network managers to set up the routes to the respective desired partners.

The prerequisite is the operation of an own Autonomous System (AS).
