Peering Policy

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.

RETN has a selective peering policy globally and considers each peering request based upon individual merits. Below are the main principles which determine RETN’s decision regarding the benefits and appropriateness of establishing peering with potential partners.

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

Basic requirements

Those who request private peering with RETN should:

• Have minimum traffic volumes of 4Gbps with RETN;
• Have balanced traffic with AS9002, with a minimum ratio of 50%;
• Have implemented MANRS actions and be a participant of MANRS (manrs.org);
• Secure a minimum of 10Gbps bandwidth at each interconnection point;
• Be able to react quickly to establish additional capacity to meet traffic growth, and agree to upgrade connections at 70% utilisation;
• Maintain “full BGP view” at the edge router by means of BGPv4;
• Announce only its own routes and the routes of its customers to AS9002, but not the routes received from other peers or upstreams;
• Not announce “martian” routes or the default route (0.0.0.0/0) to AS9002;
• Manage a fully staffed 24×7 Network Operational Centre;
• Provide its escalation matrix upon request in order to be able to quickly resolve possible network issues;
• Ideally be able to peer in multiple geographic locations;
• Be beneficial for RETN and our Customers.

Procedure

If you wish to peer with AS9002, send us your request to peering@retn.net or via online Peering Contact Form (see below).

Please, provide your network description and technical details including:

– ASN
– as-set (as macro), if available
– type of traffic carried through your network

Depending on the traffic levels expected, peering interconnections can be set up as Private Network Interconnections (PNIs) or over public Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).

In case you do not meet the requirements of RETN’s peering policy, but take a strong interest in RETN’s IP transit service, please contact market@retn.net.
