How Remote Peering Works

Connect to major Internet Exchanges around the world and peer remotely at your desired Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) from a single multi-service port without the need to establish a physical presence.

Internet Exchange Points serve as physical locations where two or more networks can directly interconnect, enabling the efficient exchange data with fewer hops. This results in lower latency, enhanced internet performance and increased reliability for end-users. 

Multiple VLANs can be configured from a common network port by utilising our trans-Atlantic MPLS network, to enjoy scalable bandwidth of up to 100Gbps. 

With remote peering powered by a dedicated Layer 2 connectivity between your business and the IXs, enjoy cost savings on IP transit expenses while experiencing substantial improvements in traffic routing.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Peering?

Peering is the direct exchange of internet traffic between networks at an Internet Exchange Point (IXP). It improves internet performance, reduces reliance on third-party transit providers, and leads to a faster and more reliable internet experience for end-users by efficiently exchanging data with fewer hops.

2. What is the purpose of Peering?

Peering serves to foster more efficient, cost-effective traffic exchange, thereby enhancing network reliability and extending global reach. It achieves this by enabling networks to cooperate and directly exchange traffic, reducing the need for data to traverse multiple intermediary networks.

3. What is Remote Peering?

Remote Peering is a way of interconnecting networks where two or more networks connect to an Internet Exchange Point (IXP) or a peering point through the use of a remote peering service provider to establish the connection.

4. What is the difference between Remote Peering and Direct Peering?

There are four key differences between Remote Peering and Direct Peering:

  1. Physical presence: Remote Peering allows businesses to connect to an Internet Exchange Point (IXP) without a physical presence, as connections are established through the Remote Peering provider. In contrast, Direct Peering necessitates a physical presence at the IXP.
  2. Hardware deployment: Remote Peering does not require the deployment of physical hardware at the IXP, while businesses opting for Direct Peering must invest in hardware installation, cover colocation and utility fees at each IXP, and manage ongoing maintenance charges.
  3. Interconnection port: Remote Peering enables businesses to access multiple IXPs using a single interconnection port and cross-connect to the service port. In contrast, Direct Peering requires a separate physical port and cross-connect for each IXP the network wishes to peer with.
  4. Vendor management: Remote Peering simplifies the management of multiple IXP relationships, which typically involve varying Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and contracts that businesses must handle when adopting traditional Direct Peering.

5. How does Epsilon’s Remote Peering work?

Epsilon’s Remote Peering is a cost-effective solution that enables networks to access the IXP or peering point from a remote location without the need to establish a physical presence at the exchange location.

6. How does Remote Peering improve network latency and performance?

Remote Peering reduces data transit distances, optimising routing through strategically positioned Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), and minimising congestion for lower network latency and enhanced performance. The capability to reroute traffic during network failures and exercise enhanced control over routing decisions further bolsters network reliability. Consequently, applications and services hosted on the network operate with greater efficiency, resulting in an overall improved user experience.

7. How do I choose the right Remote Peering service provider

When selecting a remote peering service provider, consider factors such as: 

  • Extensive partner ecosystem: The service provider should have established partnerships to facilitate seamless remote peering at your preferred Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) globally 
  • Network scalability and flexibility: The solution should be able to accommodate and adapt to your evolving requirements   

8. What is an Internet Exchange Point (IXP)?

An Internet Exchange Point (IXP) is a physical location where Internet infrastructure companies interconnect with one another. These strategically positioned locations serve as peering points for network providers to exchange traffic outside their own network. Having a presence at an IXP enables companies to minimise the distance their data travels to the transit coming from other participating networks, thereby reducing latency and improving round-trip time.
