  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers specific actions via four programs for Network Operators, Internet Exchange Points, CDN and Cloud Providers, and Equipment Vendors. Requirements for Participation Please read the full MANRS Actions document before applying. You can become a participant if you meet these requirements: You (or your company) support...

GOLINE owns and operates an IP network identified as Autonomous System AS202032.

Our IP network is directly interconnected with multiple ISPs, NSPs and CSPs. New peering connections are established, are open and when they are beneficial for GOLINE and its customers. Below are the main principles which determine GOLINE’s decision regarding the benefits and appropriateness of establishing peering with potential partners.

GOLINE has a open peering policy globally and considers each peering request based upon individual merits. We reserve the right to reject a peering request or terminate existing peering relationships if their advantages are not evident to us.

Those who request private peering with GOLINE, whether over a PNI or IXP, should:

  • Don’t have minimum traffic volumes with GOLINE
  • Have balanced traffic with AS202032, with a minimum ratio of 5%
  • Have implemented MANRS actions and be a participant of MANRS
  • Secure a minimum of 1Gbps bandwidth at each interconnection point
  • Maintain a network consisting of fully redundant with each peering point
  • Be able to react quickly to establish the additional capacity to meet traffic growth, and agree to upgrade connections at 70% utilisation
  • Maintain “full BGP view” at the edge router by means of BGPv4
  • Announce only its own routes and the routes of its customers to AS202032, but not the routes received from other peers or upstream
  • Not announce “martian” routes or the default route ( to AS202032
  • Manage a fully staffed 24×7 Network Operational Centre
  • Provide its escalation matrix upon request in order to be able to quickly resolve possible network issues
  • Agree GOLINE peering conditions in a formal interconnection agreement
  • Be beneficial for GOLINE and our Customers

If you wish to peer with AS202032, send us your peering@goline.ch.

Please, provide your network description and technical details including:

  • ASN
  • As-set (as macro), if available
  • Type of traffic carried through your network

Depending on the traffic levels expected, peering interconnections can be set up as Private Network Interconnections (PNIs) or over public Internet Exchange Points (IXPs).

In case you do not meet the requirements of GOLINE’S peering policy, but take a strong interest in GOLINE’s IP transit service, please contact us.
