Balkan Internet Exchange… offers its members unique opportunity to exchange traffic between each other at a single flat price. This means that a participant only orders a single port and then immediately gets connected to all other. This is an excellent solution to make a stable and reliable connection to the most important local market players with lower latency. The network is monitored by highly skilled engineers always available on your disposal for support requests if ever anything goes wrong. As a member you may create only one or two for redundancy sessions with our route server and this is enough to get prefixes exchanged between all other members that have sessions with it. You advertise your networks to a single peer that is our route server and it serves your prefixes to every other peer having session with it. We also send to you all other routes that we receive.
Imagine all the opportunities… with having a Local peering exchange port connected to us with an even expanded value? Ever expanding. Yes it’s possible to achieve even more with your connection to us and we present this chance to our members without any additional costs! We currently offer direct connections to most important peering exchanges in the Balkans. We make it easy by omitting the need of transport through the well-known traffic hubs as Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Most Tier 1 or Tier 2 providers will still direct your traffic from Sofia to Romania through Western Europe and you will end up with a 60 ms+ latency for less than 300 km physical distance.
Take an example… how can you as a Tier 3 service provider omit going from Sofia to Bucharest through Western Europe? Well, if you don’t like it, you may… lease a fiber to Romania, lease a second fiber to Macedonia, a third one to Slovakia, another one to Poland… Then you have to arrange a collocation presence, you must install a switch or router and you must make private interconnections with everyone serving the local market. You must also care about all the technical and administrative stuff of your topology… Forget about this! We have already taken care of all those complicated tasks.
We made it simple for you… we are connected to the most important traffic exchange points in the Balkans. We have achieved this task by introducing high capacity protected lines ensuring stable service. Build a session with us and see how the whole Balkan Peninsula comes to your routing table as a next-hop. Experience less than 10 ms latency to Bucharest and less than 20 ms outside Romania. With Balkan Internet Exchange the Balkan traffic stays where its place is: In the Balkans! All of these great opportunities are facing you without any extra charges. You win it double: Local and Regional Peering at a single price.
You only build and support one single physical and logical connection and you get all our members’ prefixes as a next-hop.
You keep a single session with only one peer (ours) and the effect is the same as having private session with more and more people as we expand.
You omit the need to arrange private sessions with anybody connected to us (on sales or technical level).
You are only interested in one physical connection in case you change hardware or move your datacenter.
Your traffic levels expand without any limit as we expand our member’s base.
You don’t deal personally with any issue that may arise as we fully take the escalation in our hands to any respective party.
You only manage and upgrade a single port that may be 10Gbit’s or 1Gbit’s and don’t full up your switches with private physical interconnections.
Key possibilities and advantages:
We offer a transport IP address from our own AS and we give you a netmask of /24. This immediately enables you to make private communication with any member you want without any traffic interference from our routers or without any further configuration (approving, creating vlans etc.).
We offer you two route servers on your disposal so that you may benefit from the redundant topology we designed.
We enable you to send us specific BGP communities so that you fine tune your incoming and/or outgoing announces.
We enable you to expand your traffic levels up to the capacity of your physical port.
We serve all the support you need outstandingly fast and this makes technical issues almost impossible to arise.
We offer you a flat price per port no matter how much traffic passes through it, this means that you would never experience sales agents calling you once your traffic levels become higher and higher as a result of our expansion.
