Extending Australian Peering further than ever

About

EdgeIX operates settlement-free, multi-lateral layer 2 internet exchanges for anyone with an autonomous system number (ASN).

We believe that having more internet exchange points (IXPs) contributes to a healthier internet ecosystem for Australia, and are focusing on under-served regional markets such as Darwin (DRW), Hobart (HBA) and Adelaide (ADL).

 

With over 20 years industry experience in the telecommunication space and operation of internet exchanges, our team is dedicated to provide best-in-class product and service.

 

For technical information, please read our peering policy.

Peering Policy

Peers must comply with the following policies
  • A publicly routable ASN
  • Publicly routable address space
  • ASN record completed in PeeringDB
  • 24x7 NOC contact capable of resolving BGP routing issues
  • Ability to do the BGP between peers (and ideally the route servers, but optional)
  • Peer contact information must be provided to help enable a response in the event of any issues that may impact the IX or other Peers
  • Re-advertising the IX peering prefixes is bad and not permitted
Allowed Traffic Types
Ethernet types:
  • 0x800 – IPv4
  • 0x806 – ARP
  • 0x86DD – IPv6
Mac Security

Layer 2 MAC filtering is implemented at EdgeIX to help prevent unauthorised traffic from entering the exchange, each peering port/bundle is restricted to a single MAC address.

No Proxy ARP

Unicast only (except for broadcast ARP and Neighbour Discovery/IPv6 Things)

The following protocols are fine:

  • ARP
  • IPv6 ND

Please assume all others are a no-no

Community based prefix filtering

The EdgeIX route server system also provides well known communities to allow members to control the distribution of their prefixes. These communities are defined as follows:

Community Description
0:peer-as Prevent announcement of a prefix to a peer
24224:peer-as Announce a route to a certain peer
0:24224 Prevent announcement of a prefix to all peers
24224:24224 Announce a route to all peers

So, for example, to instruct the route server to distribute a particular prefix only to AS64111 and AS64222, the prefix should be tagged with communities: 0:24224, 24224:64111 and 24224:64222.

Alternatively, to announce a prefix to all EdgeIX members, excluding AS64333, the prefix should be tagged with community 0:64333.
