GLOBAL PEERING EXCHANGE

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS A PEERING EXCHANGE? Peering refers to an exchange of data traffic between independent networks for the benefit of both networks. Peering exchanges, also called internet exchanges (IXs), and internet exchange points (IXPs), are network access points at which collaborating companies connect their networks and exchange data.  
WHAT TYPE OF COMPANIES USE INTERNET EXCHANGES? Internet service providers, content delivery networks and enterprises are common users. 
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF JOINING A GLOBAL INTERNET EXCHANGE (IX)? Companies that exchange data traffic via internet exchanges typically experience low latency due to fewer network hops, lower costs compared to alternative methods of data exchange, higher bandwidth and better network performance. 
HOW DOES PEERING IMPROVE NETWORK PERFORMANCE? Direct connectivity enhances control over connection quality, specifically to minimize packet loss when data is exchanged. Also, the networks involved in peering can choose the optimal routes over which to transmit data, prioritizing the shortest, fastest routes. 
HOW DOES PEERING SAVE MONEY? Direct interconnectivity at IXPs reduces or eliminates the use of third parties that provide data transmission services. Bypassing third parties typically reduces transit costs. 
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SETTLEMENT-FREE PEERING AND PAID PEERING? Settlement-free peering is a mutually beneficial arrangement under which the parties do not pay each other. Paid peering involves an arrangement under which networks pay each other to exchange traffic. Payment may be based on traffic volume or other terms.
