If you do not have a PoP at a DE-CIX-enabled site, you can connect via a DE-CIX reseller. Our partners offer access to DE-CIX enabled sites from over 470 cities in 70+ countries worldwide.
Benefits of peering via a reseller
Peering via a reseller reduces hardware and colocation costs while providing direct interconnection to multiple or even hundreds of networks.
In detail, it means that you have
- no additional hardware costs,
- no extra colocation fees,
- no deployment/installation fees,
- no cross connect charges,
- reduced paperwork, and
- an almost instant setup.
In addition, DE-CIX reseller partners usually offer more bandwidth choices, shorter contract terms, and access to more than one Internet Exchange. This enhances your flexibility.
You appear as full DE-CIX customer
Your AS number is announced at the DE-CIX platform, you appear as a full DE-CIX customer and can peer with all connected networks as if you had a router installed in a DE-CIX-enabled site. And you still have the freedom to choose your own peering policy – open, selective or restrictive.
DE-CIX support is available for you
In addition, you can call DE-CIX support directly at any time if you have questions. You are able to enjoy all the benefits of peering that direct DE-CIX customers have.
Please note that there are some performance effects you may experience when peering via a reseller:
- slightly higher latency than with direct peering at a DE-CIX Exchange due to the transport from your remote site, and
- potential routing inefficiencies.
Better peer via a reseller than not at all
We recommend peering via a DE-CIX reseller if installing a router at one of DE-CIX’s enabled sites is not part of your plans for the near future. It’s better to peer via a reseller than not to peer at all. Peering enhances the end user experience, improves your IP quality and reduces costs.
