Public peering

As a BNIX participant, you must have at least one active peering relationship. Participants that wish to set up peering between themselves subscribe to a bilateral peering contract, with no BNIX involvement.

Remote peering

Remote peering means peering without a physical presence at the local exchange point. This can be done because reseller partners have already connected their network to BNIX. The reseller takes care of the transport, the peering port on the BNIX platform and all contractual obligations. As a remote participant you have access to all BNIX services, including the public peering LAN, BNIX route server and access to the BNIX portal. First line customer care support is provided by the reseller.


Managed by Belnet, BNIX is a non-profit organisation and only bills the cost price of its services. The connection costs are the same for our three BNIX Points of Presence.

BNIX Service Desk

The Belgian National Internet eXchange (BNIX) Service Desk is the single point of contact for institutions connected to the Belnet network. It is available 24/7 for all your questions related to incidents and technical, commercial or administrative information.
