We offer a few basic services over the exchange point to help you get the most out of your connection

Shared VLAN Peering

Most Common: We offer Bilateral and Multilateral peering. With Bilateral peering the peers establish BGP sessions directly between their respective routers. With Multilateral peering the peers establish BGP sessions to a route server or two (for redundancy) and the route server "reflects" the routes to all other router server clients. From the outside, both types of peering look the same to other BGP speakers

Private VLAN Peering

In this case the peering relationship happens on dedicated VLANS - not one shared VLAN as above. VLANs can have 2 or more associated ports included to allow only those you choose to be included. The BGP session is established directly between the two (or more) peers with their own IP space as there will be no layer-3 interfaces on the actual exchange. In this case the VLAN-ID will be assigned by OmahaIX.
