A little (peering) Easter Egg

Easter is almost here, and we have some little (peering) Easter Eggs for you: Check out our library of recorded, available on-demand webinars for insights into peering – from Blackholing to BGP. Or have a look at our new route server features: Informational and operational BGP Communities for origin tagging and graceful BGP session shutdown. In addition, you could read the Telecom Ramblings interview with Ivo Ivanov about the future of interconnection. Or seize the opportunity to register for the next DE-CIX TechMeeting!

Whatever you do: We wish you a Happy Easter and enjoy the holidays!

Additional access points in Hamburg


With enabling Internet Port Hamburg (IPHH) as the third DE-CIX-enabled site in Hamburg after GlobalConnect and n@work, networks can also connect from other providers like Artfiles or euNetworks, also located in the Wendenstrasse 408. See the full list of enabled sites.

New enabled site at Mumbai-IX:

New DE-CIX route server features


The DE-CIX route servers now support two new features: Operational BGP Communities for graceful BGP session shutdown, and Informational BGP Communities for origin tagging. Read more below!

Operational BGP Communities: Graceful BGP Session Shutdown


The DE-CIX route servers now support RFC 8326. With this new well-known BGP Community, you can instruct the route servers to calculate and redistribute an alternate path (if available) for your advertised prefixes before you start commencing your maintenance.
Read more.

Informational BGP Communities: Indicating Origin


The DE-CIX route servers tag all prefixes with certain BGP Communities to indicate their origin. You can use this information to determine where a certain prefix has been injected into the DE-CIX switching platform.

Resources: Route server guides, looking glasses, Blackholing guide and more


To get the most out of peering, there are many resources where our customers can get insights into topics like route servers, looking glasses, Blackholing, Informational BGP Communities, and more. These topics are now more easily available on the DE-CIX website at the "Resources" navigation button. If you miss something there, let us know!
