Peering

From the Wikimedia Foundation
Jump to: navigation, search

The Wikimedia Foundation operates several wiki-based projects, including Wikipedia, the popular on-line encyclopedia, which has become a global top-10 website. Wikimedia delivers its web site services from two separate, indirectly connected networks:

  • AS14907 in the USA
  • AS43821 in Europe

Both networks are open to peering with other parties, on IPv4 and IPv6. Currently we have presence at the following Internet Exchange Points:
