Key Benefits of Peering
The Internet is a global system of interconnected networks—essentially a network of networks. An Internet exchange is a marketplace that allows Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to directly interconnect these networks and exchange IP traffic.
ISPs can avoid the costs of third-party networks.
Peering creates faster, more direct data flows with fewer network hops.
Peering increases available paths, which improves routing, efficiency and fault tolerance.
