Comnet Turkey has an open peering policy, subject to the few basic technical, commercial, and legal requirements expressed in our peering policy, and to any local infrastructure requirements or constraints.
We are able to peer at the Internet Exchanges (IXPs) and private facilities listed in our PeeringDB entry. Please note that not all interconnect locations may be available for all networks.
Comnet Turkey is listed in PeeringDB, the industry database for peering information for network operators. Please review our PeeringDB entry for the most current list of Comnet Turkey’s public and private peering locations. New peering requests should be submitted with email firstname.lastname@example.org
Comnet Turkey has an open peering policy, subject to certain technical, commercial and legal requirements. At times, local infrastructure requirements or constraints may modify these requirements on a temporary or long-term basis.
Comnet Turkey generally does not have a minimum traffic requirement for public peering (subject to any specific market conditions).
Although Comnet Turkey connects to Internet Exchange route servers where present, Comnet Turkey prefers to establish direct BGP sessions for traffic exchange.
For networks with sufficient traffic (generally above 10Gb/s), Comnet Turkey prefers private peering, also known as Private Network Interconnect (PNI)
In general, Comnet Turkey will only peer with a network in a region where the peer has sufficient end-user traffic within that region to meet the above public or private traffic requirements.
In general, peering sessions with AS61135 will advertise all COMNET-ASN routes. At times, local infrastructure requirements or constraints may result in a more limited set of routes being advertised via AS61135.
For traffic exchange, Comnet Turkey will generally prefer private peering links over public peering links, and public peering links over route-server paths. We will generally not support public peering or route-server learned routes with a network where we have private peering links within the same continent. Note that via route-servers, Comnet Turkey only advertises aggregate routes
We suggest peers set a max-prefix of 15,000 (IPv4) and 1,000 (IPv6) routes on peering sessions with Comnet Turkey.

This section explains how Comnet Turkey does traffic management, and what we ask from peers.
At times our traffic may not follow these guidelines as a result of observed performance between Comnet Turkey serving locations and the end-user.
Comnet Turkey asks that peers advertise all their routes in all locations where they peer with Comnet Turkey , unless an alternative route advertisement policy has been agreed. Comnet Turkey will manage traffic routing and delivery to ensure optimal performance for end-users.
To ensure sufficient peering capacity in the event of an outage we recommend that peers connect with us at more than one location and augment their peering connections when peak traffic exceeds 50%.
If a peering port becomes full due to an outage or other capacity issue, then Comnet Turkey’s traffic management systems will overflow excess traffic to other peering ports or other alternative paths.
Comnet Turkey can generally run peering ports at 100% capacity, with low (<1-2%) packet loss for most services. Peers should abide by the capacity augments guideline above.
