NCL-IX is built on a modern state-of-art Arista platform. Pictured above is one of our DCS-7280SR-48C6 switches supporting 48 x 1/10Gb ports and 6 x 100Gb ports. Our two PoPs are interconnected with a resilient 100Gb ring.
The NCL-IX peering fabric operates on VXLAN for ease of expansion. We have implemented a fully automated provisioning system using the IXP Manager platform.
Some of the features of NCL-IX, with IXP Manager, include:
- Fully automated base and core configuration and provisioning.
- Fully automated edge (member port) provisioning and static L2 ACLs used to protect other members.
- Configuration for route collections, route servers and the AS112 service is automated through IXP Manager.
- 24/7 monitoring from the Stellium IP NOC.
