Balkan-IX wants to introduse new fees from 01 March 2012. Every new member will receive one month trial period. The price for one 1GE port is 250EUR per month and for 10GE port is 450EUR. There is discount for annual payment and bonus for recommendations.
BalkanIX is a neutral partner in terms of fiber, telecom and Internet operators and is not related to any of them. The infrastructure of BalkanIX does not offer services that can be competitive for all participants. BalkanIX team is a neutral party, which offers professional and independent services and maintenance of infrastructure to exchange the traffic, and equal rights and technical requirements for all participants.
Using one or more 1GE, 10GE port to the infrastructure of BalkanIX, provides cheaper solution for IP traffic exchange, more efficient loading of network resources and easy scalability as compared to an existing multiple gigabit connections between Internet providers. BalkanIX can be used as addition to existing cross-links between providers to increase capacity of the traffic. Using the route-server (RS) to manage the routes enables more flexible and easier routing and quick configuration.
Through partnership and cooperation with Romanian IX and RONIX, since March 2010 there is connectivity between the two Internet Exchanges. This enables all members of RONIX to reach directly all Bulgarian service providers and all participants in BalkanIX can reach service providers and telecoms in Romania.
