Technical Policy
  • We will not peer with anyone who is a ViaNet transit customer.
  • We require that our peers permit LSR, loose source routing, at least at the border.
  • We require that peers announce the same routing policy at all points where they peer with us.
  • Private peers must, and public peers are encouraged to, have NOCs with email addresses, phone numbers, and 24x7 coverage.
  • Peers must agree to actively cooperate chasing security violations, denial of service attacks, and similar incidents.
  • Peers must not abuse the peering relationship by doing any of the following non exhaustive list: pointing default, resetting next hop, selling or giving next hop to others, and so forth.
  • We reserve the right to not peer with anyone as we see fit and to terminate any peering at any time with 30 days notice.
  • We also reserve the right to change this peering policy with 30 days notice.
