TPIX - a comprehensive telecommunications solution

Topology

The TPIX platform is split into two areas: Backbone and Access.
The TPIX Backbone is built in a redundant way:

  • Two route servers, users can set up parallel BGP sessions.
  • Four backbone Juniper MX10008 routers with deployed instances of Open Peering and Internet.Optimum (previously MIX2).

The access part of the Platform is located in the following facilitiesh:

  • Warsaw Orange Kazimierzowska 53/55 street
  • Warsaw Orange św. Barbary 10 street
  • Warsaw LIM Jerozolimskie Avenue 65/79
  • Katowice 4DC Adamskiego 7 street

Peering participants and customers of the TPIX platform can be connected via fibers, the nationwide Orange access networks in Metro Ethernet, Carrier Ethernet and DWDM technologies.

3rd party infrastructure is also accepted.

We offer 100G, 10G and 1G access ports.
Customers interested in TPIX ports may also use 3rd party cables, terminated at Orange, LIM and 4DC facilities.

TPIX supports Remote Peering – all TPIX services can be delivered on multiple VLANs to be resold to customers of connected carriers.
