  • All Openface Internet Inc. (Openface) peers must supply a contact that is available on a 24×7 basis, such as a Network Operations Center (NOC) or equivalent.
  • Peers must not utilize any form of gateway of last resort or default route that is directed at Openface.
  • All announcements are to be consistent across all interconnect locations.
  • Openface reserves the right to suspend peering for an indefinite period of time should any form of network abuse be verified to take place via the peering interconnect such as, but not limited to, denial of service attacks (DOS), unsolicited bulk email (SPAM), or setting default-route to Openface.
  • Openface’s final decision on peering is based upon a mutually agreeable decision to peer based upon operational needs. If Openface’s operational needs cause a peering arrangement to conflict with the best interest of Openface, Openface reserves the right to terminate the peering agreement with reasonable advance notice.
  • Openface reserves the right to modify this Peering Policy at any time without notice.
