Peering is a business relationship whereby operators of IP networks reciprocally exchange traffic sourced from each respective network through direct interconnectivity. Settlement-free peering is intended to be mutually beneficial to both parties.
Cox Communications’ (CCI) Settlement-Free Interconnection program is designed to handle the evolving Internet, and reflects current state. As Internet traffic delivery and associated economics change over time, Cox’s peering program will evolve as well. All interested parties should review the guidelines for settlement-free peering.
