Networks that would like to connect to AtlanticWave must first be connected to
one or more of the four AtlanticWave XPs. If your network is not already
connected to one of the AtlanticWave XPs, contact information for each AtlanticWave
XP is available by selecting the corresponding link above.
If your network is connected to one or more of the AtlanticWave XPs and
you want to use AtlanticWave to peer with another AtlanticWave User at one of
the other AtlanticWave XPs, please contact the Manager of the XP to which
your network is connected to arrange for such service. You will be
asked to complete a “Request for AtlanticWave International Peering
Service” form, which you can obtain below.
This request form will ask for
key information, including the name of the network
with which you would like to peer and which AtlanticWave
XP that AtlanticWave User is connected to. After
receiving the completed form, the XP Manager
will work with the AtlanticWave operations coordinator
and the other XP Manager(s) to establish a vLAN
the layer-2 connection requested.
In addition to the International
Peering service for networks described to the
left, Atlantic Wave is interested in supporting
special projects. Network research projects
and experiments are anticipated
to be the primary special projects that Atlantic
Wave is intended to support.
Special projects share the same infrastructure
as the production service. Therefore, special
projects must be designed to be non-disruptive
and might be refused or discontinued if they
conflict with bandwidth needed by the primary
Special projects requests should include a brief
description of the project, start date, duration,
estimated bandwidth, exchange points (XPs) involved,
statement of potential for disruption, and networks
involved. Users interested
in such scheduled, temporary, and special project-based
uses of AtlanticWave should send their requests
to their XP operator or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
