What we offer

  • Transit

    IP Transit offers global Internet connectivity. Different profiles and models are available (flat fee as well as usage-based). If required, we can also make an offer that includes protection against DDoS attacks.

  • Interconnect Peering

    Interconnect Peering offers connectivity to the Swisscom end customer base. This is a share-based peering model, which includes a certain amount of free data traffic. If one of the parties exceeds their share, it has to provide compensation to the other party.

  • Basic Peering

    Basic Peering offers connectivity to the Swisscom end customer base. Different profiles and models are available (flat fee as well as usage-based). In addition to private peering we also offer public peering via Swiss-IX for smaller bandwidths.

  • Caching

    A combined collocation-peering model in which the customer provides and delivers contents for the Swisscom end customer base over servers (customer-owned hardware) in the Swisscom data centre. A limited peering capacity is included in the offer in order to fill the servers with contents.
