CIRA Peering Requirements

CIRA is willing to peer (IPv4 and IPv6) with networks which are connected to one or more exchange points which we have in common.

CIRA peers with route-servers where available and encourage all peers at any IX to do so.

CIRA will announce to you via BGP4 any routes which we carry and will accept any routes that you carry.

CIRA will gladly set up direct peers (instead of or in addition to route-server functionality) with any interested parties.

Peers must agree to never send traffic to CIRA for destination addresses not advertised by CIRA. 

Any network is welcome to contact CIRA via email at to discuss peering. Please include your ASN and peering point locations.
