BGP Tunnels

Available for educational and research purposes

Educate yourself about BGP

Our free BGP tunnel offering is available for any individual which would like to start using BGP for educational or research purposes. All our tunnels are based on GRE, offer a full table of IPv6 routes and accept trusted / verified announcements based on IRR data within the RIPE database.

Thanks to our automation platform we can quickly spin up new tunnels without much administrative overhead and are able to update our route filters daily to ensure a secure and trusted environment without risking to cause any negative impact on the global routing tables.

Please note that for policy and verification purposes we only accept the announcement of resources registered to the RIPE database. Should you not own an ASN and/or IP space yet, feel free to take a look at our competitively priced RIPE LIR services to get started.
