What is IP Transit?

The Internet is a network of networks.

IP Transit is a service where one party pays an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to use the ISPs network (and the networks connected to it) to exchange the party’s traffic with third party networks.

What is an Autonomous System?

An Autonomous System (AS) is a network with its own routing policies managed by one single entity. Each AS is identified by a number or Autonomous System Number (ASN). LWLcom’s ASN is AS50629.


How can I connect to LWLcom’s network to use the Protected IP Transit Service?

There are 2 options to connect:

  1. 1. In a Datacentre where you are co-located with LWLcom
  2. 2. Building a link from your premises to one of our network Points of Presence (PoPs)


  1. In a Datacentre:
    We have presence in a number of Datacentres in Germany (Link). Do you have equipment one of them?

    • If you are present in of these, you can connect to our equipment via a cross connect ordered from the Datacentre.
    • If you are not present in any of them, we offer a co-location service (link) by which you can install your equipment by renting any number of U’s in our racks. We then will connect your equipment to ours.
  2. Building a link:
    We can build a link from your premises to one of our network Points of Presence (PoPs).
    The bandwidth of the link will be based on your traffic requirements.

Service Delivery & Service Assurance

How long does it take to turn up a transit connection?

Protected IP Transit connections can usually be provisioned within 1-3 business days, but may need longer amounts of time depending on 3 rd party cross-connect delivery.

How do you monitor it?

We have a team of engineers monitoring 24/7 and our DDoS platform monitors in almost real-time with 1 second detection and mitigation of DDoS attacks.


Does LWLcom offer flat rate pricing plans for IP Transit?

We do. We offer flat rate pricing plans in addition to other billing models. You can choose from:

  • – Flat port charge
  • – 95 th percentile charge
  • – Other, such as an Aggregate Committed Data Rate (ACDR) plan that
    can be shared across multiple locations and ports and allowing you not
    to overpay for unused capacity.
What is the minimum contract length?

We trust our customers will not want to leave us as our services provide top quality. For administrative purposes the minimal contract length is one month.

How do I cancel my contract?

What is a DDoS attack?

It is a sophisticated attack designed by cybercriminals to overflow a targeted server/website with illegitimate requests from infected computers. As a result, the server/web performance will degrade or it will crash.

How long does it take your platform to detect and mitigate a DDoS attack?

One second.

Do I have to pay based on the number of DDoS attacks received?

No, our service rate is independent of number of attacks.
