FAQ

  • What is peering? What advantages compared to IP transit?

    Peering consists in the exchange of Internet data (traffic) between 2 networks.

    Public peering is achieved through an exchange point, which gathers a wide range of connected networks willing to exchange traffic among themselves. Its audience consists of Internet network professionals who manage their own AS (Autonomous System).

    Peering and exchange points thus bring a number of advantages:

    • Economic benefits: reducing IP transit expenses and optimising infrastructure costs (traffic exchange on the exchange point is free of charge, only the connection is charged);
    • Technical benefits: reduced latency, better routing control and connectivity resilience, especially for critical applications.

    Peering thus meets perfectly the growing needs of network infrastructures technical and financial optimization from any organization managing its own IP network.
