Re: Open Peers at PAIX

  • From: William B. Norton

One thing I want to add to this thread for ISP Peering Coordinators is a plug for the Peering Contact Database (PCD).

The Peering Contact Database is a directory of ISP Peering Coordinators that started at the 1st Peering BOF at NANOG 17 in Montreal. See slides at Peering Coordinators that toss in their business cards (or virtually provide their contact info) get added to the PCD and as a side effect get a copy of the Peering Contact Database about every 6 weeks.

The intent is to help folks (and there are a lot of them) that need to get peering contact information to initiate the process. During the my peering research getting this initial contact information turned out to be a real challenge. I would also point out that this is a small community service project that is not affiliated with my work at Equinix.

If (and only if) you are an ISP Peering Coordinator and would like to participate, please send e-mail to and I'll return a copy of the PCD template to fill out.

Thanks and hope this helps!
