Peering with Migros-Genossenschafts-Bund


Migros-Genossenschafts-Bund (in the following "MGB") is willing to peer with other Internet service providers (in the following the "ISP") at all exchange points we share, as long as it is in the interest of both organizations, MGB and the ISP.
For MGB measures of interest are:
  • Services provided towards Migros community
  • Size of ISP's network and thus expected amount and symmetry of traffic between MGB and the ISP
  • Other direct benefits for the retail business
  • There are no settlement charges on either way. We do not require a signed contract, and will not sign any if requested.
    MGB does normaly not peer with organizations, that are customers of organizations, that already peer with MGB.
    MGB maintains the right to change this policy at any time without written notification.
    MGB might reject a peering if this potential peering will endanger our network or our services.
    If you want to adjust any of these or the following rules, there is good chance that we would agree, given good reasons, but you must get our explicit consent in written form first.

    You must

  • operate a knowledgeable NOC that we can contact directly in case of trouble. No response within 48 hours may lead to depeering.
  • only announce routes of your own.
  • establish a peering setup that is technically sound and in accordance with best practices.
  • assist in troubleshooting and containing any peering-related issues, plus (D)DOS, UCE, hacking or virus attacks originating from your network.
  • have your current routing policy registered with RIPE or another decent registry.
  • support IPv4 AND IPv6 prefixes.
  • You must not

  • set any static route to our network, at any time, for any reason.
  • reset next hop - at any time, for any reason.
  • announce private, special-use or reserved address space (e.g. RFC 1918, RFC 3300, RFC 3849, RFC 4193, RFC 5737).
  • announce a default route.
  • announce our routes to non-customers.
  • We will

  • filter announcements smaller than /24 (IPv4) or /48 (IPv6).
  • shut down a peering if we are getting severe problems and ask questions later.
  • We will not

  • honor MEDs, so hot-potato routing is implied.
  • We promise

  • to resolve any issues as quickly as possible.
  • to do all the stuff we expect from you.
