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).
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).
Access to peering is non-discriminatory.
Peering is done independently.
Everyone has the right to choose its partner networks.
Our prices are mostly to cover costs.
Data is supposed to find the fastest way.
