LSIX - The Public Peering VLAN

The Public Peering VLAN, or ISP Unicast VLAN is the most common Internet Exchange service world-wide. Multiple networks connect to a de-centralized VLAN to setup peer to peer connections to members at multiple data centers through one or multiple ports. A single port already gets you access to all networks on the Internet Exchange - making it a very cost-effective solution for exchanging traffic. In addition to peer to peer connections the LSIX also offers an option to connect to our redundant route servers. Setting up direct peers with our route servers gives you access to a consolidated set of routes shared by all other participating members.

The Public Peering service is Ethernet based and supports both IPv4 and IPv6. Our ports start at as small as 1 gigabit per second, up to one or multiple 100 gigabit per second connections. Through our partner program you may also connect to LSIX with speeds below 1 gigabit per second and from locations that LSIX does not have a point of presence at this time.

Performance on the exchange is monitored 24x7 by the LSIX NOC. Customers may monitor their bandwidth consumption and peering diversity from the LSIX portal
