Benefits of Peering with BALT-IX

  •  Enhanced end-user experience

    Bandwidth requirements for services like video LIVE and VOD, gaming, cloud, or voice over IP grow continuously, and every millisecond, if not nanosecond, is important; peering provides for the lowest latency path and therefore greatly enhances the end-user Internet experience.

  •  Increased revenues

    Deciding for BALT-IX's services means making a safe investment with a reliable partner. Let us show you how to increase your revenues with peering. Contact us. To take advantage of the BALT-IX PEER service, you need to have access to BALT-IX, and you need to have your own Autonomous System Number (ASN).

  •  Reduced IP transit costs

    The more networks you reach with one cross connect, the fewer cross connects you have to pay for. With just one cross connect to the BALT-IX platform you reach most of Lithuanian networks. Reaching a multitude of networks also reduces your IP transit costs. 

  •  Short routes to IP networks in the metro region

    BALT-IX’s platforms are distributed platforms connecting multiple locations in Vilnius. Prime - TIER3 Datacenter Liepkalnio st. 160C, Vilnius, TIER2 Datacenter Panerių st. 26, Vilnius, Juozapavičiaus st. 13 Vilnius, Laisvės av. 60, Vilnius,  Radastų st. 2, Kaunas and other locations).

  •  No need to arrange individual peering arrangements

    The connection to BALT-IX not only saves costs on cross connects, but it saves you a lot of time: you don’t have to arrange peering agreements for hundreds of networks by contacting them individually. The BALT-IX route servers give you instant access to about 80% of the connected networks.

  •  Control over routing and IP traffic flow

    Peering gives you the control over routing and your traffic flow. You can see how much traffic is flowing over your port and where it goes; you don’t have to struggle with overbooked IP transit routes. 

  •  Highly reliable connectivity

    The standard service level guaranteed in our Service Level Agreements for availability of the BALT-IX PEER service is 99.98%; our platform has maintained 99.98% percent uptime since 2015.

  •  Redundancy

    If peering sessions fail, transit services provide backup connectivity to peer networks; if the transit connectivity fails, the peering connectivity is unaffected.

  •  Increased network quality

    Direct peering provides you with the lowest latency path to your target networks on an uncongested path; therefore, peering improves the quality of networks.
