Hello SLIX Peers,
Microsoft has joined SLIX !
Please review our peering policy at https://www.microsoft.com/peering<https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fpeering.a…> and follow the process to request peering. Microsoft peering requests are processed via Azure portal which provides automatable steps to set up and easy way to manage all your peerings in one place. Peering with Microsoft will directly connect you to services including O365, Azure, Xbox, MSN, Bing and more!
Thank you for peering with Microsoft!

Google AS15169 is on SLIX with 2x100Gb ports.
Policy: "Generally Open"
Google AS15169 is currently peering with both route-servers. If you are
already peering with the route-servers, you will see their advertised
routes immediately. If you would like to peer with the route-servers and
currently are not, please contact info(a)slix.net, as access is not open
Dates: 2021/06/06 & 2021/06/07
Maintenance Window: 05:25 MDT - 05:35 MDT
Where: SLIX Route Servers & AS112 peer
The AS112 peer server will be rebooted at on 2021/06/06 @ 05:25 MDT and
route-server-1 will reboot at 05:30 MDT for kernel and OS updates.
Route-server-2 will be rebooted the following morning at 2021/06/07 @
05:30 MDT for kernel and OS updates.
Please peer with both route-server-1 and route-server-2 if you wish to
have uninterrupted service to other SLIX route-server participants. If
you aren't peering with the route-servers yet, and wish to, please email
me so I can set you up.
When: May 29, 2021
Maintenance Window: 00:00 MDT - 01:00 MDT
Where: SLIX EdgeConnex
The SLIX 100Gb switch at EdgeConnex will be swapped out tonight with a higher-power model more suited for the required 40KM optic backhaul.
Hey all, the number of participants peering with the route-servers is
growing, but I'm noticing that many do not have some or all of their
routes registered in an IRRDB like RADB or ARIN. If they are not
registered, the route-server will not pass them on to other peers. If
someone else has RPKI registered a network you are announcing
unauthorized, it will also drop these routes.
If you go to the looking glass page at:
You can select between IPv4 and IPv6 routers and then look at the view
the routers have of your peer. The route-collectors simply takes routes
in and doesn't export anything, so you can feel free to experiment with it.
The routes with a black triangle with an exclamation point are being
filtered. If you click on the DETAILS button to the right, you can see
In addition to IRRDB, RPKI is checked, which I also recommend that
everyone look into, as more and more networks are RPKI filtering. If
you're paying ARIN for services right now, you can most likely use their
IRRDB and RPKI registries for no additional charge. Otherwise, radb.net
is good for IRRDB entries as well.
