WWT Peering Policy

 

1.    General Guidelines
This document sets WWZ Telekom AG ("WWT") Policy for Settlement-Free Interconnection with Internet Networks, also referred to as "peering". WWT regularly updates its Policy and maintains the current version of its Policy on the WWT web site at www.wwz.ch/peering. WWT reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time.

 

WWT strives to provide premier direct Internet access to all customers. To accomplish this, WWT has developed this Peering Policy to provide guidelines for the selection of interconnection candidates that wish to peer with WWT. Interconnection candidates are based upon, among other things, costs, port availability and bandwidth capacity at particular locations, and the overall strategic benefit WWT will experience with the connection. Compliance with the technical and operational requirements in the Policy does not guarantee a peering relationship with WWT. Requests for peering with WWT Internet Networks are handled on an individual-case basis. For the purposes of this Policy, an Internet Network must be a single Autonomous System ("AS").

Interconnection candidates wishing to initiate discussions with AS-TELEZUG regarding potential establishment of new settlement-free peering should contact peering@wwz.ch with their requests, including evidence of meeting all criteria listed in the policy below. The criteria involving traffic measurements must be met by a prospective peer for three consecutive months. Potential peers will be contacted within a reasonable timeframe to discuss their requests.

2.    Network Operation
WWT applies ingress filters towards its customers, which prevent the injection of packets with spoofed source addresses. It is expected that peers take similar precautions to protect its own and their peers' networks. WWT reserves the right to implement packet filters on its border routers to protect customers from malicious traffic, misconfiguration, and abuse of network capacity. Any outage or impairment to peering session which is identified by the remote network operator is to be reported to the WWT NOC as soon as it is identified. Peers technical staff for network operations shall be reachable by 7x24 hours. Appropriate contact information will be made available among the parties. The peers mutually agree to the publication of traffic statistics concerning the peering connection. The peers agree to adapt the capacity of the connection(s) over time so that the offered load can be handled at low packet drop rates. WWT will continue to monitor the development of the Internet and traffic conditions and make appropriate changes in this Policy as the Internet continues to evolve.

3.    Peering Points
IPv4 and IPv6 Peerings are welcome at EQUINIX Zurich (CH), SwissIX Zurich (CH) and DE-CIX Frankfurt (GER):
SwissIX:     91.206.52.119, 2001:7f8:24::77
DE-CIX Frankfurt:   80.81.195.50, 2001:7f8::2275:0:1

4.    Routing Configuration
The peering allows exchange of traffic between defined sets of IP networks. The networks of WWT are described in the RIPE database (AS macro). Peers set of IP networks must be defined in the same way (RIPE database). BGP-4 is used to exchange routing information between the peers. The peering does not include the right to transit traffic from peer to third peers' networks through WWT. The peers must not use static routes to point to each other's network, except where necessary for setting up the BGP connection.
