Peering with BroadbandONE

This document outlines the guidelines and prerequisites that BroadbandONE uses to determine whether a network qualifies for Settlement-Free Interconnection, also known as Peering, with AS19151. BroadbandONE reserves the right to modify, replace or nullify this document at any time. All questions regarding this document, or requests for Peering, should be directed to

BroadbandONE is the Carrier and Wholesale arm of the company and is a global Internet and transport backbone provider, which maintains an International MPLS/IP infrastructure, operated under global Autonomous System Number 19151.  BroadbandONE has an aggregate peak bandwidth utilization in excess of 200 Gbps, with a traffic ratio of 2.5:1 inbound.  There are over 7 million eyeballs on the BroadbandONE network and traffic tends to flow in this direction.

This document has been last updated on June 1, 2016.


1. Operations Requirements

1.1 Both parties shall operate an experienced, fully staffed Network Operations Center that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The network operations center shall provide an escalation path for resolving network issues in a timely fashion.  Issues of a non-emergency technical nature should be responded to within 48 hours.
1.2 Both parties must demonstrate and enforce strict filtering policies to prevent route leaks.
1.3 Both parties shall be responsive to unsolicited bulk email, hacking, Denial of Service, and other network security and abuse issues. A good faith effort should be made to provide a qualified engineer to trace ongoing network attacks within a reasonable amount of time.
1.4 Both parties shall provide access to a route server, looking glass, or similar service for the purposes of routing audits, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.
1.5 Both parties should make a good faith effort to facilitate communication regarding network maintenance that will affect traffic exchange.


2. Technical Requirements

2.1 Both parties shall maintain sufficient backbone and interconnection capacity to enable saturation free delivery of the traffic being exchanged. Both parties should act proactively to establish additional capacity to accommodate traffic growth.
2.2 Both parties are expected to register their routes in a public Internet Routing Registry (IRR) database, for the purposes of filtering.  Both parties should make good faith efforts to keep this information up to date.
2.3 Both parties shall make every reasonable effort to restrict the transmission of Denial of Service attacks and packets with forged source addresses from their network.
2.4 Both parties shall announce only their own routes and the routes of their transit customers to the other party. No other routes are permitted, and may be filtered if detected.
2.5 Neither party shall establish a static route, a route of last resort, or otherwise send traffic to the other party for a route not announced via BGP. Neither party shall alter, sell, or give next-hop to a third party. These activities are considered theft of service, and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
2.6 Neither party shall announce to the other a more specific route of a prefix heard from a third party transit customer.
2.7 Under no circumstances shall the interconnection partner be a simultaneous peer and transit customer.
2.8 Generally, AS19151 does not peer with downstream transit customers of existing peering partners but this may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.


3. Interconnection Requirements

3.1.a Interconnection at a minimum of three (3) diverse peering cities (one east-coast, one midwest, one west-coast).

3.3 Public Interconnection Requirements – Global
3.3.a Interconnection at two (2) geographically diverse continents (North America and Europe).
3.3.b At least 125Mb/s of aggregate traffic measured at peak times must be exchanged.
3.4 Private Interconnection Requirements – North America
3.4.a Private interconnection at a minimum of three (3) geographically diverse private peering cities (one east-coast, one midwest, one west-coast).
3.4.b At least 500Mb/s of aggregate traffic measured at peak times must be exchanged.
3.4.c Uniform interconnection speeds are preferred; interconnection should have no less than 1000Mb/s of capacity.
3.5 Private Interconnection Requirements – Europe
3.5.a Private interconnection at one (1) private peering city.
3.5.b At least 500Mb/s of aggregate traffic measured at peak times must be exchanged.
3.5.c Uniform interconnection speeds are preferred; interconnection should have no less than 1000Mb/s of capacity.
3.6 Private Interconnection Requirements – Global
3.6.a Private interconnection at a minimum of two (2) geographically diverse continents (North America and Europe).
3.6.b At least 500Mb/s of aggregate traffic measured at peak times must be exchanged.
3.6.c Uniform interconnection speeds are preferred; interconnection should have no less than 1000Mb/s of capacity.


4. General Policy

4.1 This policy may be updated from time to time, as market and traffic conditions affecting network interconnections change. We reserve the right to modify, replace, or nullify this document at any time.
4.2 In the event of a severe, criminal, or quality-of-service impacting violation of these policies, the interconnection may be temporarily suspended without notice.
4.3 Any interconnection may be terminated for any reason, with 30 days notice.
4.4 All requirements must be met at the time the request for Peering is made, and must continue to be met for the duration of the interconnection.
4.5 Meeting all of the requirements stated in the Policy does not guarantee we will enter a settlement-free interconnection relationship with Applicant. We reserve the right to deny settlement-free peering to an Applicant based on business reasons. We also reserve the right to make exceptions to this policy for special case or legacy peering partners.
4.6 A good faith effort should be made to split the cost, if any, for Private Network Interconnections.
4.7 Applicants must be listed and provide updated contact information (if applicable) on
4.8 Applicants may apply for settlement-free peering once every six (6) months.
4.9 We require that Applicants seeking settlement-free peering in the United States agree to provide reciprocal settlement-free peering with AS19151 in the Applicant’s home market.
