MLPE

MLPE Information

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 Malaysia Internet Exchange (MyIX) and are free of charge to Internet Exchange participants. To protect and ensure the reliability of all MLPE participants, there is a requirement 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
  • Participants are encouraged to register Routes announced via MLPE 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://portal.myix.my/members/login.

Please contact peering@myix.my  if you are interested to participate in the MLPE service.

MLPE BGP COMMUNITIES

MyIX MLPE route servers support the ability for participants to more granularly control outbound announcements of their routes using BGP Communities. 

For members having 4-byte ASN, please contact peering@myix.my for the workaround solution.
