Connect Verisign’s mission-critical Domain Name System (DNS) services directly to your internet infrastructure
(Internet Exchange Point)
In order to connect a RIRS node to an Internet Exchange Point (IXP), the following requirements must be met:
(1) rack unit of space
(2) 110-240VAC power feeds
(1) 250W of power
(1) 1G (fibre-optic or copper) or 10G (fibre-optic-only) connection for production DNS traffic
(1) 1G (fibre-optic or copper) or 10G (fibre-optic-only) connection for management
Verisign will peer openly with IXP participants via the production interface.
The hosting IXP must provide full IPv4 or IPv6 (desired but not required) transit via the management interface. The hosting network will not be expected to run BGP over this interface.
Verisign will configure a static default route towards the hosting network over the management interface. This will be used for system management operations only. No production DNS traffic will transit this interface.
