Peering with AS20562
Open Peering has an Open Peering policy. We have the following peering preferences:
Contact email@example.com to request information and initiate peering.
- To setup peering on multiple geographical locations
- To peer with a network operating a 24x7 NOC
- To peer with networks with an up to date routing registry (such as RIPE)
- To peer with networks with an up to date entry in PeeringDB
- To peer settlement free
This document only applies to Open Peering AS20562.
Meeting the peering guidelines presented in this document is not a guarantee that a peering relationship with
Open Peering will be established. Open Peering shall evaluate a number of business factors and reserves the
right not to enter into a peering agreement with an otherwise qualified applicant.
Open Peering is willing to peer (IPv4 and IPv6) with networks which are connected to one or more exchange points
which we have in common.
We will announce to you via BGP4 any routes which we carry and will listen to any routes that you carry. If
you peer with Open Peering, we expect the following:
- Only send us traffic that is destined for the prefixes we announce to you. Do not point default at
us or use static routes to send us traffic that does not match the routes we announce to you.
- Open Peering will announce consistent routes at each exchange point, but variations may occur due
- Open Peering expects you to peer at all exchange fabrics we have in common if we peer with you via
public exchanges or all facilities we have in common if we peer via private interconnect with you.
- Open Peering sets up IPv6 peering (along with IPv4 peering) with all networks that run both
Requesting peering to AS20562

Open Peering Exchange Point Information
Open Peering strives to provide uncongested bandwidth at all exchange points. All exchange port bandwidth is
monitored and kept within acceptable levels. The network is upgraded constantly, and large peers are moved
onto private peering sessions.
When requesting peering with Open Peering at multiple locations, we also request that backbone operators
provide enough backhaul bandwidth to handle their peering bandwidth needs.
Changes to the peering policy and existing peerings
Existing peers of AS20562 will have their peering status reviewed periodically to ensure joint capacity
planning and to ensure that all criteria continue to be met.
Open Peering reserves the right to terminate peering for convenience, upon a 1 month prior notice or with
peers who do not meet the criteria described above.
Periodic review of this policy will be conducted to ensure that the criteria and eligibility requirements
are consistent with Open Peering business needs. Open Peering may modify this peering policy at any time.
