About us

OpenCarrier is a registered German non-profit association offering networkinfrastructure services (Layer 2 / Layer 3) to its members. Major POPs are located in Frankfurt, Düsseldorf and Amsterdam. Most of our members offer hosting, housing and colocation, but also access-services (DSL) and voice services. Our traffic-ratio is about 2:1 (outbound/inbound).


Peering policy

Our peering policy is generally open. That means that we prefer to peer with the route servers at the Exchange Points. If the expected data-rate or the importance of the peer legitimate a direct peering, we will setup direct or private sessions on request. There are only a few basics (see Peering requirements) we assume you can agree into.

We do not ask for a written peering contract but if you require we will sign a contract if we agree with the content.

If you would like to have a peering with us, please contact us via peering (at) and provide us the required information (see below).


Peering requirements

Any Peer must agree into the following conditions:
