AS25455 Peering Policy

Overview

GUARDFOX owns and operates an IP network identified as Autonomous System 25455 with AS-GUARDFOX as-set (IPv4) and AS-GUARDFOX6 (IPv6).

Our IP network is directly interconnected with multiple ISPs, NSPs and CSPs. New peering connections are established, only when they are beneficial for GUARDFOX and its customers.

GUARDFOX has a selective peering policy globally and considers each peering request based upon individual merits. Below are the main principles which determine GUARDFOX’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 GUARDFOX should:

• Have minimum traffic volumes of 2Gbps with Guardfox SRL;
• Have balanced traffic with AS25455, 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 AS25455, but not the routes received from other peers or upstreams;
• Not announce “martian” routes or the default route (0.0.0.0/0) to AS25455;
• 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 Guardfox SRL and our Customers.
