CyrusOne’s National IX uses dedicated Layer 2 switches and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) or 802.1Q to enable any party within a facility to connect with multiple parties both within and outside of the facility. This BGP-driven process is widely known as peering.
Peering is the core operational protocol by which global Internet enterprises hand off traffic to the end autonomous networks via the Internet from multiple physical locations worldwide.
Peering virtually eliminates geographic boundaries and network confinements associated with data exchange.
Peering expands cloud platform viability and cost-effectiveness.
