Public (open) peering is a service that provides cost reduction for IP transit by consolidating of Peering partners at Layer 2 level of switches.
Using this service, each IX member can peer with other members in order to improve the availability of information resources, reserve and improve of network routes, as well as increase an economic efficiency of traffic distribution.
Interconnectivity between the LL-IX members is based on the direct bilateral agreements, the form of which is determined by the members themselves. LL-IX does not participate in making of these agreements and does not influence on the peering policy of the members. After reaching agreement, BGP communication is established between networks. The members that willing to arrange peering with as many networks as possible can use Route Server. The advantage of using RS is the possibility to reduce the number of "paired interactions" which leads to the exchange of route information through one point. In this way traffic will be transmitted between the networks connected directly to LL-IX bypassing RS. RS is duplicated for reliable and stable working.
