Turbocharge your Transit with the quality of Peering

Transit with Peering quality

Transit from NL-ix is a truly unique Transit product: of course it provides access to the entire Internet Routing table, but where possible, it uses one of the ~2.400 single hop routes that connects many important networks across Western Europe, typically covering minimal 80% of your traffic with the fastest routes possible over the NL-ix low latency network directly into the destination network.

One of the most distinctive features of Transit from NL-ix is that actual traffic routes of your traffic are visible through our innovative Elastic Transit Manager: a web interface that offers complete control and insight into (historical) internet traffic. It provides a detailed overview of latency, bandwidth and routes. This allows you to solve problems that lie outside the traditional company network much faster.

Due to the Elastic Transit Manager, Transit from NL-ix does not require specific BGP knowledge whilst turbocharging your Transit with the quality of Peering.

Key Features

  • One Port – Multiple services Combining Transit, Peering and layer 2 Transport services over one port enables you to save on the monthly cost of patch cables and ports in use. Running multiple services over a single port also means a single invoice and easier manageability. As NL-ix values low latency, we have build the Network Health Monitor, which feeds you live data on Round Trip Delay times on the NL-ix network across Europe, available on our website

  • Flat Rate & Metered Transit comes in many variations including lower speeds in both Flat Rate and Metered variants. The metered variant is also available in an uncommitted (0 Mbps) variant. This makes an ideal backup port with low fixed costs but a very competitive price per Mb.

  • Additional Services NL-ix offers a range of Transit, Transport, Peering and training services and we actively guides you through setup.

Use Case:

The symbiosis of Peering & Transit

If Internet is at the core of your business, the quality of your IP-connectivity is of ever growing importance. Still, many networks with typically less than 10 Gbps traffic only use one or two transit upstreams.

Adding Peering to this mix would improve the BGP routes, with fewer dependencies, more stability, more control and more backup, resulting in a better quality of service for your customers. But for most of these networks this step is just too big. The investment in an extra flat fee Peering port and negotiating Peering agreements with networks and setting up BGP routes, will just not pay-off.

Specifically for those networks we have created an integrated service that combines the best of the Transit and Peering worlds, providing routes with the quality of Peering, plus the global reach of IP Transit. This is Transit from NL-ix: the symbiosis of Peering and Transit.

Transit extends your reach to ~2.400 Peering networks via single hop routes, typically covering minimal 80% of your traffic. The remaining 20% of the traffic will be covered by a mix of tier one Transit providers. All delivered over one, easy to set up port.
