As of 1 January 2022 BNIX offers the possibility to set up private VLAN connections at a one-time setup fee of €200 per end point, excluding VAT.
A private VLAN is a simple layer2 point-to-point connection between your organisation and any other BNIX participant whether you are located within the same data center or not. The private VLAN can be configured on a dedicated physical port or on the same port you use to connect to our public peering infrastructure.
Using private VLAN allows participants to access services directly from each other using the existing BNIX infrastructure and therefore saving on cross-connects. Being an IP transit provider for example you can use a private VLAN on BNIX to offer your IP transit service to other BNIX participants interested in buying this service from you. The contract for such a service is a private agreement between the 2 participants and the BNIX platform only acts as a technology intermediary. As such BNIX only charges a fee for the correct configuration of the respective VLAN and ports. We hope to enable the participants to make an even more efficient use of their connection.
