What is IP Transit?
Technically, IP Transit 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 to reach other networks on the Internet.
Also known as “transit”, IP Transit is wholesale, BGP-enabled Internet for the use of ISPs, Carriers and large Enterprises with AS numbers. Ninext’s IP transit provides our full Internet routing plus other peers’ downstream routes. When comparing IP transit, some routes are better, 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 Nigeria’s most popular data centres.
To be able to purchase IP transit, you must also have an AS number and be familiar with and run BGP (Border Gateway Protocol). By purchasing IP transit, you’ll receive a full BGP table containing the prefixes of our other customers, prefixes of our ISP peers, and any other upstream providers.
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.
Nigeria 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 centers. Ninext understands the importance of reach and performance across the Nigerian domain, 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 centers in Nigeria.
Ninext provides burstable access, aggregated billing and flexible contract terms. We offer bespoke commercial terms to clients based on their traffic profiles and requirements.
IP transit refers to paid internet bandwidth and connectivity provided by network service providers. IP transit providers, or network carriers, offer raw internet access and network port services that other internet service providers resell to end users and businesses.
IP transit is purchased by ISPs, IT service providers, network solution providers, and large enterprises with their own networks. They use IP transit bandwidth and ports to provide internet service to their customers or expand the geographic reach and capacity of their infrastructure. IP transit allows these organizations to scale their networks on-demand without building additional equipment or making large upfront investments.
Cost-effectiveness. IP transit is often cheaper than building and maintaining network hardware, especially for bandwidth and connectivity that may go underutilized at times. IP transit providers can achieve higher efficiency and pass the savings on to customers.
Flexibility. IP transit offers flexibility to adjust bandwidth up or down as needed to meet changing requirements. Network capacity can be scaled quickly without being limited to fixed ports or bandwidth increments.
Global reach. By purchasing IP transit, networks can be extended across the world using the transit provider's global infrastructure and partnerships. Reach can be expanded into any geographic region and country without establishing a local network presence.
Redundancy. Connecting to multiple IP transit providers provides network redundancy in case one provider experiences an outage or connectivity issue. This helps prevent customer-impacting network downtime and supports business continuity goals.
Reliability. Reputable IP transit providers operate networks that are designed for high availability and reliability. They employ network monitoring, redundancy, and swift problem resolution to minimize interruptions in service.
Anonymity. Some organizations prefer to purchase IP transit to keep their network activities and traffic anonymous. Using another provider's network infrastructure and IP address space hides network details and obscures the origin of online activities. This can prevent network exploitation or compromise.
