Connect to an IXP

Connection Requirements

The requirements needed to connect to an IXP can differ from one IXP to the next. The following 3 requirements are found at most IXPs:

  • Autonomous System Number (ASN)
    => this number is used in both the exchange of exterior routing information, and as an identifier of the AS itself
  • Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP-4)
    => 
    Peering between Members' routers across the IXP will be via BGP-4
  • Connection Agreement
    => Each IXP has its own terms and conditions which a prospective customer must be willing to adhere to

Note: Some IXPs have more requirements than those listed above. Full details of the joining requirements per IXP can be viewed here
