Security and Restrictions

Basic Protection For the IX and You

The safest way to connect to an IX is with a router, and we prefer you connect to us with a router. However we do recognize many switches can perform most all of the routing functions that most enterprises need from a router these days.  We just ask if you are connecting with a switch that you make your switch’s port facing IX-Denver as router like as possible; for example 1 MAC address, L3 terminated p2p connection, no loops, no spanning-tree, no discovery protocols, but mostly a p2p broadcast domain between the IX fabric and your port. If you implement these basic best practices then our other basic protections listed below will likely be invisible to you and your network.
