Get connected

How to connect

  • The entity you represent is legally constituted.
  • You have your own internet connection, i.e. you do not get access to the whole internet only from the CATNIX connection.
  • You have an Autonomous System (AS) registered to some Regional Internet Registry (RIR) of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA): AFRINIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE-NCC.

Through this application form you can provide us with the necessary information that will let us get back to you with the Connection Agreement. This agreement must be signed to become a CATNIX member.

Once we receive the form, we will contact you and send the Connection Agreement, which defines the service and terms of use of CATNIX: you’ll have to sign it if you want to become a CATNIX member.

Once you already have signed and sent the agreement to us,  admission to CATNIX will be immediate, you will be added to the distribution lists and to the intranet, and the connecting process will start.

The steps to finish the connecting process are:

  • We will assign you the requested port(s), and the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to configure your connection to CATNIX. We will connect your equipment to the CATNIX switch that you have chosen.
  • We will configure the port(s) in a VLAN test and make the necessary checks before adding it/ them to the peering VLAN.
  • The routing protocol to use is the BGP-4, optimizing to the maximum the aggregation capacities allowed by Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR).
  • Once connected, you can start peering.
