What is IP Transit

When you want to send or receive information across the Internet, you need to pass through, or 'transit', one or more third-party networks in order to reach your final destination. IP Transit is a service where an Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows traffic to travel through their network to its final destination. Regardless of how your business or product accesses the Internet, you will need to utilize IP transit in some capacity.

Tiers of IP Transit Providers

Tier 1: providers have an expansive global reach. These providers peer with each other and act as the global conduit to all networks – thus forming the “backbone” of the Internet. There are roughly six total Tier 1 networks that connect the globe. These networks have one-hop latency to one another by design, and subsequently to the smaller networks underneath them. Tier 1 providers freely peer with each other, but charge lower tiers a fee in order to access their network. The combined reach of these Tier 1 providers allows for expansive routing tables that can route requests to anywhere on the Internet. Examples of these providers include AT&T, CenturyLink, and Level3.

Tier 2: providers have large networks with multiple physical locations and data centers. These ISP's will typically peer freely with each other in order to expand the breadth of their content delivery capability and to avoid the usage costs of accessing a Tier 1 network. Examples of Tier 2 ISP's include Amazon, Netflix, and Google.

Tier 3: providers are generally local providers with smaller client lists. They will typically purchase a smaller portion of IP Transit through a Tier 2 provider to avoid the higher costs of going directly to a Tier 1 ISP.
