Peering with AS 49420
Aplitt has a selective, but generally open peering policy with other Internet networks at public Internet exchanges.
To initiate a peering request, send mail to email@example.com and include your NOC contact information, AS number, IP addresses, requested peering points, maximum advertised prefixes, and MD5 password (optional).
Peering is the direct interconnection between Aplitt Network (AS 49420) and another network for the purpose of exchanging traffic between these networks.
Aplitt peers at the Internet Exchanges and peering facilities listed in PeeringDB.
The selection of peers is based on performance, capability, and where there is mutual benefit, and are subject to certain technical, commercial and legal requirements.
General technical requirements for peering are:
- A knowledgeable and fully staffed 24x7x365 Network Operations Center (NOC).
- A publicly routable ASN.
- Publicly routable address space (at least one /24 of IPv4 and/or one /48 of IPv6 space)
- Current and complete peeringdb.com entry.
- Neither party shall establish a static route, a route of last resort, or otherwise send traffic to the other party for a route not announced via BGP.
- Both IPv4 and IPv6 are supported (and expected).
- Both parties are expected to register their routes in a public Internet Routing Registry (IRR) database, for the purpose of filtering. Both parties shall make good faith efforts to keep this information up to date.
- MD5 is not required.
- Minimum traffic not required.
- Multiple locations not required.
In general, peering sessions with AS 49420 will advertise all AS-APLITT routes.
We suggest peers to set a max-prefix of 32 (IPv4) and 16 (IPv6) routes on peering sessions with Aplitt.
