BIT BV (AS12859) peering policy

  • We do not let political issues get in the way of what is good for the Internet as a network. Therefore we will peer with anyone who wants us to at the AMS-IX, NL-IX, DE-CIX and LINX.
  • Peering on multiple locations and with all available routers is preferred.
  • BIT peers with route servers at all exchanges but prefers direct peering.
  • BIT does not require MNDA's or written peering agreements, but if your company does, we will be happy to sign them (if we agree to the content).
  • BIT prefers to setup peerings on both IPv4 and IPv6

We would like our peers to peer with both our routers at the AMS-IX, LINX and/or NL-IX. Please configure all of the sessions the same, we will be announcing our routes with different metric values.


BIT announces the following AS-sets: AS-BIT on IPv4 and AS-BIT6 on IPv6. Both objects are registered in the RIPE database. Please use a maximum prefix number of at least 100 for IPv4 and at least 40 for IPv6.

Peers, routing policies and Communities used by BIT are documented in the AS12859 object in the RIPE database.

Routing Resilience Manifesto

BIT supports the Routing Resilience Manifesto: we filter our BGP announcements, implement anti-spoofing, keep our records up to date and have a published routing policy, as you can see on this page.
