Action 1: Filtering of Route Announcements
The MLPE (Multi-Lateral Peering Exchange) service automates peering for open networks by providing route servers for participants to exchange routing information with multiple peers using only one BGP session. This allows for the establishment of sessions without a bilateral peering agreement in place with the participating networks. MLPE route servers are available at all Equinix Internet Exchange locations and are free of charge to Internet Exchange participants. To protect and ensure the reliability of all MLPE participants, there is a straightforward Agreement that must be submitted to activate service.
To receive routes from MLPE, you must announce your peering routes
MLPE supports both IPv4 and IPv6-unicast routes
Routes announced via MLPE should be registered in a public routing registry
You must peer with both MLPE Route Servers to help provide a stable routing system
Registered users can manage their MLPE participation at https://ix.equinix.com/ixp/mlpeRegistration.
