Global Peer Connect

Exclusively from Cogent, Global Peer Connect (GPC) is your on-ramp to the Global Peer Exchange. With a Global Peer Connect port, you will have the ability to peer with any other participant in the Global Peer Exchange in any of over 1279 carrier-neutral data centers and 54 Cogent data centers worldwide.

Global Peer Connect features 10GE burstable ports on the Global Peer Exchange with no term or bandwidth commitment. LAG is available for GPC ports, should you have the need for greater bandwidth.

The Global Peer Exchange (GPE) is a Worldwide Connectivity Platform to exchange Internet traffic, much like an IXP (Internet Exchange Point), just brilliantly global, elegantly flexible and radically priced. Once connected to the Global Peer Exchange, any network can set up dedicated VLAN connections to any other GPE Participant, using the discovery and connection platform to find peering partners.

Key Benefits of Global Peer Exchange

  • Economical: no fixed port costs (only burstable), no distance-based fees (peer with anyone else worldwide on GPE, regardless of location)

Any Network can join Global Peer Exchange

Whether you are an ISP, a Carrier or a Service Provider, an Online Applications / Content Provider, or even a large Corporation, as long as you run your own network with an Autonomous System Number (ASN), Global Peer Exchange is right for you.
