AS9002 peering policy

OVERVIEW

RETN owns and operates an IP network identified as Autonomous System 9002 with AS-RETN as-set (IPv4) and AS-RETN6 (IPv6).

Our IP network is directly interconnected with multiple ISPs, NSPs and CSPs. New peering connections are established, only when they are beneficial for RETN and its customers.

Below are the main principles which determine RETN’s decision regarding the benefits and appropriateness of establishing peering with potential partners.

RETN has a restrictive peering policy globally and considers each peering request based upon individual merits.

We reserve the right to reject a peering request or terminate existing peering relationships if their advantages are not evident to us.
