Peering Policy

Neptune Networks operates AS21700. We have an open peering policy.

We have no requirements in terms of traffic, size, or support/SLA. We operate both IPv4 and IPv6 and appreciate peering with both protocols.

Please contact peering@neptunenetworks.org to initiate peering.

BGP Communities

We use large BGP communities for both informational and alterable communities.

Informational

These communities are available on both peer and customer prefixes.

Alterable

When these communities are applied to prefixes received by Neptune Networks they alter their routing policy in our autonomous system. They are available only on customer BGP sessions.
