Private Peering – This is an agreement between two or more networks to accept each other’s packets and forward them. The interchange is made at a common, private facility rather than at a public exchange point. Some benefits of private peering are that it is easy to monitor, more reliable, more secure. A major setback in private peering is that it takes more time to set up new peering connections. On the other hand, this setup is very useful when a large quantity of data needs to be exchanged. Most of today’s private peering arrangements occur at collocation facilities independent of a particular carrier. Private peering interconnections make up most of the traffic on the Internet, especially between the largest networks.

Ultimately make sure to choose the one that best fits your needs. If you want a great performance, lower cost, and reliable peering service give FD-IX a call at 463-209-7100 or click on this Request Peering link.
