Perú IX (PIT Peru sac) is a distributed Internet Exchange currently present in multiple data centers in Lima, Peru. We operate in layer 2 with Spine & Leaf architecture.
Optical Module Specifications
We prefer interfaces with single-mode fiber (SMF), although if necessary we can use multimode fiber (MMF)
MAC Layer Specifications
We follow good practice for an IX in order to offer a stable and secure service
The packets sent by the ports connected to the Perú IX (PIT Peru sac) (pitperu.net) must have one of the following types of ethertypes:
- 0x0800 – IPv4
- 0x0806 – ARP
- 0x86dd – IPv6
The policy of ONE MAC address per port is applied, all packets that come through a port must have the same source MAC address.
Only send unicast packets to the interface connected to the IX. Do not send multicast or broadcast packets, as they will be discarded.
Connection port can be configured in LAG mode (LACP) if requested for future expansion
Gateway configuration, disable STP, disable discovery protocols on port
Some various topics that are good to know
If you are going to redistribute routes to a third party, make sure not to announce the prefix 22.214.171.124/24, since it is a prefix that should only be known via the door physically connected to the Perú IX (PIT Peru sac).
