IP Transit

What Is Ip Transit ?

Unlike the service you use at home to access the Internet, such as dedicated Internet access or mass market broadband, IP transit is a special way of accessing the Internet. It not only allows you to access the Internet, but also allows Internet traffic to pass through or “transit” through the equipment. Once your network is connected by IP transit, it becomes a constituent of the Internet – one of the networks that makes up the network of networks.

Public ISPs use IP transit, but they are not alone. Businesses, universities, National Research and Educational Networks (NRENs), Financial institutions and other entities also purchase IP transit. In fact, any entity can buy IP transit from a Tier 1 ISP or any other wholesale provider, provided they get an Autonomous System Number (ASN). An ASN is required of any entity that wishes to connect their network to the Internet. An autonomous system is defined as one that can exchange routing information with other neighbouring autonomous systems.

A Tier 1 Internet provider uses unpaid peering only to connect to the Internet. In peering, usually in carrier neutral datacenters or Internet Exchange Points (IXPs), the Tier 1 providers interconnect with each other to exchange Internet traffic. There are many advantages to buying IP transit directly from a Tier 1 providers, such as Tata Communications
