Public peering provides an efficient and cost-effective way to establish direct connectivity to a large number of ISPs, enterprises and CDN providers without the need to build individual transport links for these peers. Participants can connect to many other peers in order to improve the availability of information resources, reserve and improve network routes, as well as increase economic efficiency sending traffic to many different networks.
The service provides cost reduction for IP transit by consolidating of peering participants at Layer 2 of switches. The interconnection between the LL-IX participants is handled and determined based on the direct bilateral agreements. After reaching the agreement, between networks will be established the BGP communication. To make the interconnection between networks easier and faster participants have the possibility to peer with a large number of networks using the Route Server service.
Private peering is performed by direct traffic exchange between two or more LL-IX participants. LL-IX participants, who are interested to establish a private peering connection, are allocated a separate VLAN.
Private peering can be created between participants located at the same point of presence (PoP), or different points. Also, participants have the opportunity to create a private peering through additionally assigned ports. The establishment of private peering does not imply the allocation from LL-IX side of IP address to the participants.
L2 Transport service allows connecting two or more geographically distant business offices into a unified secure network for data exchange. The attractiveness of the service consists of a reliable and stable connection, that is handled and administered by the provider.
LL-IX provides its participants the opportunity to unite their networks/locations by using LL-IX L2 Transport service.
To use L2 Transport it is not required to establish an active connection to LL-IX. In order to benefit from the service, the client needs to independently set up a connection to LL-IX equipment in the necessary countries.
