In the traditional local peering approach, you need to install your router in one of the data centers where France-IX has deployed its metro infrastructure, order the cross-connect and manage France-IX as an additional supplier, in addition to your transport and colocation suppliers.
Remote peering can answer your needs to keep things simple and reduce your number of suppliers. Remote peering enables a fast deployment in a new market and can answer different network transition strategies. In general, this is the perfect solution for companies looking to reduce their network costs and to avoid immediate capital costs.
- End-to-end connectivity to France-IX through one supplier: your reseller provides, manages, supports and bills the member for all the remote peering services (transport packaged with peering services).
- One-stop-shopping means one contract, one bill, one contact so less paperwork at the end of the day. You don’t need to sign any France-IX contract, you just sign with our reseller on their paperwork and we coordinate everything with them.
- Keep in mind that you still have full membership rights with France-IX non-profit association (with the right to vote during the France-IX meetings), you have access to the same services as any other member and you still need your own Autonomous System Number to be able to peer.
Quick and easy process
- No deployment of hardware or colocation means you can activate your connection in a matter of days, instead of weeks.
- Once your contract is in place with our reseller (already connected to France-IX), your can benefit from short delays for the activation of the service.
- The variety of connection packages allows you to upgrade easily and quickly and more importantly, to stay flexible.
Zero risk with no Capex required
- There is no need to colocate your equipment in Paris and/or Marseille, you choose your traffic level in each France-IX peering platforms (Paris and/or Marseille) through your reseller.
- The reseller connects to France-IX though GigE, 10 Gbps peering ports, which are either dedicated or shared via multiple VLANs between customers. Keep in mind resellers can not oversubscribe their port(s).
- The reseller provides you only with the connection and you keep the full control of your peering and routing policy.
