Netflix Open Connect

Peering Guidelines

Netflix has an open peering policy and actively peers with networks that have end-users viewing Netflix content.

General requirements

  1. The ISP must be able to interconnect at a Peering Location shared with the Netflix network (AS2906).
  2. Both parties must provide a 24/7 contact who can escalate critical issues in a timely fashion.
  3. Both parties are expected to register their routes in a public Internet Routing Registry (IRR) database, for the purpose of filtering. Both parties shall make good faith efforts to keep this information up-to-date.
  4. Either party may accept or reject peering requests as network management needs require.
  5. Neither party shall establish a static route, a route of last resort, or otherwise send traffic to the other party for a route not announced via BGP.
  6. Neither party shall announce to the other the more specific routes of prefixes learned via a third-party transit customer.

Additional private interconnection requirements

  1. Interconnection(s) should occur in mutual locations with 10G LR or 100G LR4 Ethernet interfaces.
  2. PNI capacity upgrades should occur in a timely manner to ensure a high end-user quality of experience.
