BGP Peering Information

Imperium has an open peering policy, however we do have several basic requirements:

  • Peering partners must not be a Imperium Networks transit customer
  • Peering partners must maintain a 24x7 Network Operations Center.
  • Peering partners must cooperate in the troubleshooting of any peering related issues, denial of service attacks, UCE, hacking or virus penetration.
  • Peering partners are prohibited from abusing our peering relationship by pointing default or resetting any next-hop.
  • Peering partners are requested to peer at all common peering points.
  • We reserve the right to not peer with anyone as we see fit and to terminate any peering at any time with 30 days notice.
  • We reserve the right to change this policy with 30 days notice.

Imperium operates under the global autonomous system number of 55016 and operates both IPv4 and IPv6 networks available for peering.

We maintain a PeeringDB record located at as55016.peeringdb.com

Competitive Advantage

Atari was the first dominant game platform. The Nintendo Gameboy came next on an 8-bit device. Then Sega stole the show with a 16-bit console. (Remember 16-bit fever?)

Then Sony Playstation. Then Nintendo. We could go on.

The lesson: Each advance offers new ways to drive efficiencies and delight users. For many growing companies, the agility of cloud computing will be their secret weapon.

Think about it

Today’s laptop drives are the size of a deck of cards. It’s never been easier to store and carry all your important documents.

And it’s never been easier to lose them all.

The lesson: whenever you can, keep your data in public or private clouds, and use secure remote access for your workers.
