Afghan Wireless Peering Policy
AWCC built and operates the largest fiber optic and mobile network in Afghanistan. AWCC (AS138322) has an open peering policy, and will peer with networks that have a presence on all mutual exchange points in accordance with the policies described below.
AWCC uses PeeringDB as a single authoritative source of truth. This means peering partners must have an up-to-date PeeringDB entry before a bilateral peering session can be established.
AWCC will use industry standards to secure the peering sessions. This includes industry standard practices and best common practices, including but not limited to BCP-38 and route filtering. Both parties should have a well set-up route-set or AS-SET as well as up-to date prefix maximums defined in PeeringDB. AWCC will use this data to filter routes received from the network’s BGP sessions.
Both parties must have an up-to-date NOC contact email, which is responsive to raised issues and concerns.
Private Interconnection (PNI) Requirements
If the network exchanges more than 1Gbps of traffic in a specific (shared) location, either party can request a PNI. We accept single or multiples of 10G or 100G connections. Upgrades to this capacity must happen in a timely manner to ensure congestion-free exchange of traffic.
To ensure quality of operations, we reserve the following rights under our Peering Policy:
