MLPE

Multi-Lateral Peering Exchange

MLPE automates peering for open networks through route servers. Participants can exchange routing information with multiple peers using only one BGP session.

This allows for the establishment of sessions, even without a bilateral peering agreement, with participating networks.

MYIX MLPE supports both IPV4 and IPV6-unicast routes. Our route servers are available free of charge to internet exchange participants. However, to ensure reliability, and protect MLPE participants, we require the following:

  1. To receive routes from MLPE, announce your peering routes
  2. Register announced routes in a public routing registry
  3. Peer with both MLPE route servers to enable a stable routing system

Registered users can manage their MLPE participation here. Email us at peering@myix.my to participate in MLPE services.

 

MLPE BGP COMMUNITIES
MYIX MLPE route servers help participants control outbound announcement of their routes using BGP communities. If you have a 4-byte ASN, please email peering@myix.my for the workaround solution.
