When your network is connected into the JBIX switching fabric, the service that is immediately available to you is the Public Peering. The Public Peering allows you to peer with all the networks (ISP, Content Providers, Carriers, Universities) connected to the shared fabric using a dedicated IP address assigned to your network by JBIX. You do not need to have a separate physical connectivity to each of the peers. The IX switching fabric will bridge your network to all the networks connected in the same switching fabric as soon as you have enabled BGP peering with them. Through Public Peering, your cost per peer is drastically lowered and managing multiple peers are much more simplified
If you are newly-joint and have not established peering contact with other network peers, you may take advantage of the JBIX Route Server to learn the routes or prefixes which are available to you without initiating direct peering with each of the peers (Multi-lateral Peering). Please take note that learning routes/prefixes via the Route Server is only a temporary solution, for optimal routing performance, you are still encouraged to initiate a formal request of peering to the network contact which you wish to peer with and subsequently setup a bilateral peering with them.
