WE PEER WITH MANY WEB CONTENT AND SERVICE PROVIDERS FOR THE BENEFIT OF OUR CUSTOMERS
Peering is a relationship between two Internet Service Providers (ISPs) where they agree to provide access to (part of) each other's networks and services. If the two parties determine that the value/cost to each party of this service is similar then they may choose not to have any settlement between the parties (SKA peering).
Peering might take place over dedicated circuits or via a shared peering fabric (typically located at a neutral collocation facility or Internet exchange). The method chosen will depend on many factors,including the volume of traffic exchange, any special services required, etc.
WHO DO WE PEER WITH?
We peer with a large number of web content and service providers in Seattle making content from these entities ‘on-net’ - which means high-performance and unlimited downloads for DIUA customers.
DIUA is not interested in peering just for the sake of it but needs to see some value in the arrangement. This value might be improved performance by reducing latency between the parties or it might be the facilitation of advanced services, such as using multicast to deliver streaming content.
Any peering must take into account the cost to DIUA, e.g. co-location costs, additional routers, interfaces, circuits, etc., and where the benefit is small DIUA may choose not to peer but continue using its transit relationships to source the traffic.
