Peering Overview

Internap’s peering backbone (ASN 29791) provides complementary network infrastructure to the Private Network Access Points (P-NAP®) for Internap’s Performance IP. The peering backbone is a high-speed global network, which exchanges IP traffic directly with over 300 unique networks, via nearly 1,000 peering sessions. This peering backbone has been integrated with Internap’s Performance IP product since Internap obtained the network through its acquisition of Voxel dot Net in December 2011.

At a P-NAP service point, the peering backbone connects to Internap’s “core” routers, where all other Tier-1 transit upstream connectivity lands. As such, our proprietary routing algorithm, Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO) manages the peering backbone like any other upstream provider, and utilizes the peering option when it demonstrates the optimal performance characteristics.
