The BNIX platform, a focus of technology, power and security
How does the BNIX platform work?
Peering on the platform in five stages:
- Enabling peering: all BNIX switches share the same VLAN.
- Joining peering: each participant receives a BNIX IP address to join the peering relationship.
- Supervising peering: participants sign peering agreements at their own initiative..
- Scheduling peering: as soon as participants agree to establish a peering relationship, peering sessions can be set up via BGP (Border Gateway Protocol)
- Running peering: network traffic is exchanged
A highly reliable, neutral platform
The BNIX network is spread across 3 neutral datacentres (points of presence or PoP) The distribution of its infrastructure across different sites is a guarantee of reliability. If there is a problem at a location, communication remains possible via the other sites:
- the CenturyLink datacentre in Evere
- the LCL datacentre in Diegem
- the Interxion datacentre in Zaventem
