TRANSIT DELIVERY OPTIONS
Managed Transit is delivered to clients by assigning them an IP address allocation from LDeX Connect’s own IP space. The client configures the IP range on their equipment and LDeX Connect provides the default gateway and manages the routing out to the Internet.
BGP Transit is delivered to clients who have their own autonomous system (ASN) and PA space allocation from an Internet registry.
LDeX Connect allocates a small IP range to the client called a transfernet and then configures a BGP session on it’s core network equipment and the client does the same.
The networks are peered together and LDeX Connect then advertises the clients IP space out to it’s upstream providers.
Leased Line Transit is delivered to the clients premises using a P2P connection from LDeX Connects core network POP. LDeX Connect supplies the client’s P2P circuit and a small IP range and provides the default gateway out to the Internet. This service can be wires only where the client provides their own router or LDeX Connect can provide a fully managed service with router and firewall with DSL backup.
