PSBA Peering from the Cardiff Internet Exchange (Cardiff IX)

PSBA’s service offerings are continually evolving.  A peering capability is a recent addition.  Peering is a process by which two internet networks connect and exchange traffic. It allows them to directly hand off traffic. Peering is distinct from transit, the more usual way of connecting to the internet.

PSBA is present at the LINX-managed Cardiff Internet Exchange (Cardiff IX) where we have a 1Gbps connection to the IX switch. Welsh Government currently operates a selective peering policy, but anticipates moving towards an open policy in the very near future (Spring-2019). It is our intention to accept peering requests from all networks, subject to security approval and acceptance of our standard peering agreement. 

Further information on our peering capability, policy and agreement can be found here.
