White paper: How to optimize the usage of GlobePEER and GlobePEER Remote
A BGP configuration guide
This guide explains the DE-CIX services GlobePEER and GlobePEER Remote and gives router configurations examples for traffic optimization (configuration snippets for Cisco and Juniper routers).
It shows you how to keep local traffic local by using the GlobePEER service while getting the most out of remote peering with the GlobePEER Remote service.
E.g. how to configure local peering at DE-CIX Dusseldorf or DE-CIX Marseille while simultaneously using GlobePEER Remote in Frankfurt to peer with networks connected in Frankfurt.
GlobePEER and GlobePEER Remote:
Local and remote peering ecosystems
The DE-CIX platforms in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Marseille, Madrid, Lisbon, Palermo, and Istanbul are interconnected. With access in one of the locations, you can peer remotely at every other one of these locations. In addition, you can peer in Berlin, Moscow, and St. Petersburg respectively with access in Frankfurt and vice versa, and in Dubai with access in Marseille and vice versa.
Every location provides a local peering ecosystem, built by networks using the GlobePEER service. In addition, these Internet Exchanges provide additional peering ecosystems, based on the GlobePEER Remote service.
Networks can peer in the local peering ecosystem (GlobePEER) and peer in additional peering ecosystems (GlobePEER Remote) if they want to.
