Netflix has an open peering policy and actively peers with networks that have end-users viewing Netflix content.
- The ISP must be able to interconnect at a Peering Location shared with the Netflix network (AS2906).
- Both parties must provide a 24/7 contact who can escalate critical issues in a timely fashion.
- 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.
- Either party may accept or reject peering requests as network management needs require.
- 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.
- Neither party shall announce to the other the more specific routes of prefixes learned via a third-party transit customer.
Additional private interconnection requirements
- Interconnection(s) should occur in mutual locations with 10G LR or 100G LR4 Ethernet interfaces.
- PNI capacity upgrades should occur in a timely manner to ensure a high end-user quality of experience.
