Peering Policy


Peering is the direct interconnection between Voxtelesys's network and your network to support the exchange of traffic. Networks peer to gain a plethora of economic, performance and traffic control benefits.

Benefits to Peering:

  • Increased redundancy - by reducing dependence on upstream transit providers.
  • Elevated capacity for extremely large amounts of traffic - distributing traffic across many networks.
  • Expanded routing control.
  • Improved performance - attempting to bypass potential bottlenecks with a "direct" path.

Settlement-Free Interconnection (SFI) Policy

In SFI peering, neither party pays the other in association with the exchange of traffic; instead, each derives and retains revenue from its own customers.

Prerequisites to Peer with Voxtelesys:

Before submitting a peering request to noc@voxtelesys.com, your network administration must:

  1. Have a publicly routable ASN and IPv4 address space.
  2. Have your ASN record filled in commonly-recognized industry registry: PeeringDB
  3. Maintain up-to-date 24x7 NOC contact information.
  4. Agree to not point static and/or default routes maliciously.
  5. Presence in at least one (IXP) internet exchange point or private peering interconnection facility listed for Voxtelesys in PeeringDB.
  6. Give Voxtelesys notification of maintenance and outages.
