Ripe register LIR
As a Ripe LIR (Local Internet Registry) we control the allocation and assignment of IP address direct from RIPE. We run our own BGP network under AS44611 with transit for Multiple Tier 1 carriers.
LINX Edge-IX Member
Talk Internet is a member of both the London Internet Exchange and Manchester peering network Edge-IX (formally MaNAP). With over 460 members connecting from over 50 different countries worldwide, LINX members have access to direct routes from a large number of diverse international peering partners. Using LINX allows a reliable exchange of traffic with increased routing control and improved performance.
Network resilience – Peering at an Internet Exchange Point, in addition to transit connections, provides a higher level of resilience and creates a more diverse network. We are increasingly aware of the need for a more diverse network that is not reliant on one carrier or central point.
Tier 1 Carriers
Talk Internet uses only tier 1 service providers; Level 3,Global Crossing, Cogent and Hybernia Atlantic, as both provide high performance networks with access to all worldwide domains. IP Transit provides direct links to many of the world’s largest content and access providers and, unlike peering access, is guaranteed so customers achieve increased dependability of service.
