Peering is fundamental for you, your end customers, and the providers of the content that your customers view and enjoy every day. We’re working with New Zealand’s Internet Peering Exchanges to make peering possible over your existing UFB handovers, making it easier than ever before.
Chorus EdgeConnect is a collaboration between NZIX and Chorus which enables Chorus customers to reach NZIX exchanges (currently only AKL-IX) over Chorus UFB handovers.
By establishing a special VLAN (SVID/CVID combination) on your Chorus UFB Handover you will be able to communicate with other NZIX members on the same exchange, whether they are physically on NZIX exchange switches or other Chorus EdgeConnect customers.
Effectively the Chorus Network appears as a single switch on the NZIX fabric which is managed by Chorus. You can partake in the NZIX exchange fabric in Auckland whether your NGA handover is in Auckland or Invercargill.
