TechnicalConnecting to Denver IX
Denver IX accepts applications from all networks where our peering fabric is located. Additionally, applicants are welcome to be sponsored by a fabric extender, operators that have agreed to extend our peering fabric beyond our physical infrastructure over their own, where you can join as an associated member. Of course some basic requirements are required, including having publicly addressable IP space and a non-private AS number.
Once an application has been reviewed and approved, we will generate an invoice before provisioning of services. After payment is received, services are typically provisioned within 1 business day. The new member will be provided a LOA (letter of authorization) for enabling a cross connect into our fabric if applicable and connection details. On ports up, the new connection will be subjected to a 24 hour quarantine period before going live on the peering fabric.
The Denver Internet Exchange supports connections to our peering fabric at speeds of 1 Gbps, 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps, and 100 Gbps over single-mode fiber.
- 1 Gbps links utilize 1310nm LR transceivers.
- 10 Gbps links utilize 1310nm LR transceivers.
- 40 Gbps links utilize 1310nm LR4 transceivers.
- 100 Gbps links utilize 1310nm LR4 transceivers.
- Longer distance optics (EX/ZX/ER/LR) are available for an additional one-time charge.
- Color coded optics for DWDM/CWDM wavelength links are available for an additional one-time charge.
- 1 Gbps & 10 Gbps BiDi transceivers are available for an additional one-time charge.
Copper connections and multi-mode fiber are not and will not be made available on the Denver Internet Exchange.
