What is Paid-Peering?
Paid-Peering is not Transit.
With Paid-Peering, both ATDN and the Paid-Peer exchange routes across the Paid-Peering connection(s) using the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP-4). ATDN and the Paid-Peer only announce customer routes to each other. Other technical details:
- Interconnection speed depends on the traffic volume and geographic diversity of the interconnections.
- Routing is hot-potato i.e. no MED announcements will be honored.
- No route of last resort or default route should be pointed at ATDN. Similarly, ATDN will never point such a route at the Paid-Peer's network.
- All routes advertised to ATDN should be registered in a recognized Internet Routing Registry (IRR) such as RADB or RIPE. Similarly, all routes advertised from ATDN will be registered. The ATDN Route-Set is AOLTW:RS-AOL. AS-Set is AOLTW:AS-AOL.
