PCH services are active and ready for peering at BDIX now

Packet Clearing House (PCH) (http://www.pch.net) a not-for-profit research institute, which operates global anycast DNS network, public looking-glasses, and routing data-collection facilities at many Internet exchanges points around the world. PCH services are active and ready for peering at BDIX now.

PCH anycast DNS network provides support services for E and D root-servers, and over 400 TLDs (including some very large ones like .ca, .fr, .sg, .dk, .ch, .es, .ua etc). For maximum performance and reliability of the TLD servers PCH host and attempt to peer with all participants at each Internet exchange. The volume of traffic associated with these services is small but believe to be particularly valuable. More information is available at http://www.pch.net/technology/anycast.php

PCH’s anycast network also provides network transit services for the Quad9 project, a free and privacy-friendly recursive DNS resolver that provides end users with robust security protection. Quad9 uses threat intelligence feeds to block malicious domains, preventing consumers computers and IoT devices from connecting to malware or phishing sites.

PCH routing data collection network collects peering-only routes from as many participants as possible at each exchange. PCH routing archives can be retrieved from
