What is IP Transit?

Technically, IP Transit simply refers to a service that an Internet Service Provider (ISP) offers its downstream clients to allow their Internet traffic to traverse the ISP’s network in order to reach other networks on the Internet.

Also known as “transit”, IP Transit is wholesale, BGP enabled Internet for the use of ISPs, Carrier and large Enterprises with AS numbers. Nexthop’s IP transit provides our full Internet routing, plus other peers’ downstream routes. When comparing IP transit, some routes are better than others, some bandwidth capabilities better than others, some lower latency, and so on. We partner with Tier One providers to get the best domestic and international routes and peer inside some of Australia’s most popular data centres.

To be able to purchase IP transit, you must also have an AS number, be familiar with and run BGP (Border Gateway Protocol). By purchasing IP transit, you’ll receive a full BGP table that contains the prefixes of our other customers, prefixes of our ISP peers, and the prefixes of any other upstream providers.

What are the key benefits of Nexthop IP transit?

Full routing visibility

Gain visibility into your IP transit and routes. Choose the routes that provide the best outcomes for your business or utilise BGP through our tier one connections. Control and configure to your own specification via communities.

Network performance

Australia has a unique set of challenges for Internet performance, with a relatively dense population in major capital cities, with huge distances and very low density between centres. Nexthop understands the importance of reach and performance across the Australian continent, and have built our backbone and interconnects to ensure we can deliver the best possible experience for our downstream clients to reach the largest population centres in Australia.

Commercial flexibility

Nexthop provides burstable access, aggregated billing and flexible contract terms. We offer bespoke commercial terms to clients based on their traffic profiles and requirements.

Arista core networks for lowest latency

Nexthop provides a full-featured Arista core network with east and west submarine cable paths leaving Australian shores.

How IP transit works?

IP transit is a dedicated Internet service provided by (and to) ISPs, routing Internet traffic from one network to another. The service allows a network operator (the customer) to connect to the global Internet through the ISP's backbone network. The ISP provides a connection to its network, usually at a datacentre via a dedicated cross connect or over a vlan on an Internet Exchange (IX) peering point, providing routing information via BGP to the customer, enabling the customer's network to reach other networks on the Internet. The customer pays a fee for a fixed amount of dedicated bandwidth capacity (commited information rate) and can access burst capacity above this at a 95th percentile rate.
