as-set: AS39525:AS-PEERINGPOLICY descr: SpriteLink International Carrier settlement-free Peering Policy remarks: This document sets forth SpriteLink International Carrier (SLIC) Peering Policy for engaging in settlement-free peering relationsships between SLIC and an Internet Network requesting peering (the 'Applicant'). SLIC regularly revises its Peering Policy to ensure the Policy is consistent with the current state of SLIC's network. The current version of this Policy is available via the whois object AS39525:AS-PEERINGPOLICY at whois.ripe.net SLIC is open to peering where it makes engineering sense. Peering requests should be sent to peering@spritelink.net. Requests will be reviewed on an individual basis but should conform to what is outlined in this Policy. SLIC does not require a formal peering agreement but is willing to sign one should the Applicant wish so. remarks: remarks: Part 'A' of the Policy details the requirements that an Internet Network requesting peering (the 'Applicant') must meet in order to qualify for settlement-free peering. Part 'B' of the Policy specifies the operational requirements for peering networks, which both the Applicant and SLIC must satisfy. Part 'C' of the Policy outlines some general notifications regarding the Policy. remarks: remarks: A - Peering -------------------------------------------------- A.1 Customer. A party cannot, at the same time, be both a transit customer of SLIC and a peering partner. A.2 Upstream transit. SLIC will normally not peer with Applicant if Applicant's upstream is already peering with SLIC at the same peering point. A.3 Traffic Volume. The traffic volume shall be of such amount that it is interesting for both parties to peer in order to alleviate transit and other peering arrangements. A.4 Traffic Exchange Ratio. The ratio of the aggregate amount of traffic exchanged between the parties shall be roughly balanced and not exceed 1.7:1. A.5 Max Traffic. If the aggregate peering traffic exchanged exceeds 25% of the total port speed at a public Internet exchange point the peering shall be replaced with a private peering. A.6 Redundancy. We prefer to peer over multiple geographically dispersed points to obtain better redundancy. A.7 SLIC reserves the right to provide any learnt multicast routes and SAs to other peers in the interest of promoting multicast on the Internet. A.8 SLIC will upon request announce all multicast prefixes and SAs that is known to SLIC to the Applicant, ie SLIC will provide multicast transit for free. A.9 SLIC reserves the right to provide any learnt IPv6 routes to other peers in the interest of promoting IPv6 on the Internet. A.10 SLIC will upon request announce all IPv6 prefixes that is known to SLIC to the Applicant, ie SLIC will provide IPv6 transit for free. remarks: remarks: B - Operation ------------------------------------------------ B.1 NOC. Both parties shall operate a Networks Operations Centre with email addresses, phone numbers and 24x7 coverage. Technical contact information must be provided. B.2 Cooperation. Both parties must agree to actively cooperate chasing security violations, denial of service attacks, and similar incidents. B.3 Aggregation. SLIC will announce customer prefixes as received unless aggregation is requested by customer. B.4 Dampening. SLIC does not apply any route damping, as is recommended in RIPE-378 and we encourage everyone to follow this RIPE recommendation. B.5 Prefix-length. Routes longer than /24 is not accepted unless a separate agreement has been established. B.6 IRR. The Applicant shall register routes and routing policy with a Internet routing registry such as RIPE or ARIN. The Applicant shall announce only those registered routes. B.7 It is appreciated if the Applicant is registered with http://peeringdb.org and all information is up to date. B.8 Default route. The Applicant shall not establish a route of last resort, ie default route, or any other static routes directed at SLIC. B.9 Bogus routes. The Applicant shall announce only its own and customer routes to SLIC AS39525. It should not announce any routes from any of its other peers. Likewise, the Applicant shall only announce SLIC routes to itself and its customers. B.10 The Applicant shall announce the same routes at all peering points, unless other is stated in an agreement. remarks: remarks: C - General notifications ------------------------------------ C.1 SLIC may at any time modify, replace or discontinue this policy at SLIC's sole discretion without any prior notification. C.2 Neither party will apply any charge to the other. Expenditures for private interconnections will be shared equally between SLIC and Applicant. C.2 SLIC reserves the right to terminate the peering (depeer) at any time with 30 days notice. C.3 This policy is a guideline. Meeting all the requirements stated in here does not guarantee that SLIC will enter into a settlement-free peering relationship with the Applicant. C.4 SLIC may honor (legacy) peers not entirely matching the requirements outlined in here at it's sole discretion. C.5 Any exceptions to this Policy will be granted at the sole discretion of SLIC. remarks: And don't forget: In soviet russia, transit buys you! remarks: admin-c: DUMY-RIPE tech-c: DUMY-RIPE mnt-by: SPRITELINK-MNT created: 2007-07-14T17:07:43Z last-modified: 2007-07-23T20:14:26Z source: RIPE remarks: **************************** remarks: * THIS OBJECT IS MODIFIED remarks: * Please note that all data that is generally regarded as personal remarks: * data has been removed from this object. remarks: * To view the original object, please query the RIPE Database at: remarks: * http://www.ripe.net/whois remarks: ****************************
