RINEX is built on 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet technology. It is a Layer-2 service with no routing features within the Exchange point switch. The Operator’s router is responsible for the routing of the packets through the exchange point. RINEX operates route server(s) that aim at facilitating new entrants to connect to the rest of RINEX participants without initiating a single BGP session with each existing customers.

The Internet Peering VLAN is an Ethernet based Unicast service, enabled to support both IPv4 and IPv6 natively. The Internet Peering VLAN is the most widely used exchange service. It is the common service on which the traditional Internet Exchange is based and where public peering is doneThe service offers interface speeds of 10 Megabits per second, 100 Megabits per second (10 Mbps, 100 Mbps) and 1 Gigabit per second Ethernet(GE).
This consists of redundant interlinked stand-alone and anycast network infrastructure distributed across the African continent.
The distributed nature of AFRINIC’s DNS infrastructure will enhance DNS reachability and resolution process due to its close proximity to end users, therefore enhancing the users’ Internet experience.
The anycast DNS network provides service for E, D, and L-root and over 200 TLDs (including some very large ones like .org, .info, .fr, .dk, .ua, .in etc). For maximum performance and reliability for the TLD servers they host, they attempt to peer with all participants at each Internet exchange.
