IXPs can enhance the Quality of Service and decrease the cost of International traffic for ISPs by ensuring that local traffic only uses local connections, without needing to leave the country. This could help make the Internet more affordable for the greater part of society.
Our Virtual NAP service is a value-added solution for our Internet Transit Service (Spanish initials: STI) clients, which provides connectivity to IXPs/NAPs in order to establish local peerings and thus enable national traffic to be exchanged at a more competitive price, whilst enhancing Quality of Service.
In many countries there are national Internet eXchange Points (IXP) which small Internet Service Providers (ISP) connect to in order to establish peering amongst themselves.
Virtual NAP service clients will benefit from the following advantages:
- Access to Internet eXchange Points
- Optimisation of your network infrastructure
- Service provided by a redundant network
- Unparalleled service level for Internet traffic
- Optimal infrastructure to provide clients with the performance they expect
- Flexible and predictable growth
- Reduced complexity and costs in network planning
- Turnkey solution with international connectivity
- Routing policy
- Security policy
Our Virtual NAP service offers customers a more competitive option for providing access to existing IXPs. The main advantages are the rationalisation of costs (reduced supply and skilled manpower costs) and QoS improvement as a result of traffic exchange taking place locally.
The Virtual NAP service satisfies the need for local ISPs to obtain connectivity to IXPs in order to establish local peerings at a reduced cost, thus enabling them to send traffic via the TELXIUS network.
Depending on the geography where the client connects to the STI, the cost of a complete circuit to the IXP may not be profitable considering the amount of traffic to be exchanged.
On the other hand, when TELXIUS optimises the bandwidth needed to connect to the IXP to meet all the needs of its clients, it is more efficient and cheaper than if each client does it separately.
Additionally, and thanks to this capability, the access used to connect to the STI can be optimised with our router, making it equally useful for connecting to the IXP.
The Virtual NAP service is a value-added service which supplements the STI, and which is provided on our network; therefore, the same Internet Transit SLAs apply.
In addition, we guarantee a premium quality service thanks to the strict monitoring and management of our network 24×7 via our International Network Management Centre.
