IP Transit with DDoS Protection
5GN IP Transit provides direct peering with Tier-1 carriers, major backbone and content providers using low latency secure Internet access through 5GN PoPs in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth as well as international teleport locations in Singapore, Japan, Los Angeles and Auckland.
5G Networks employs several Tier 1 carriers for both the extension of connectivity and direct peering across this network. Partner providers include Telia, PCCW, TI Sparkle, Telstra Global and AAPT.
BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) peering is available with IP Transit and customers can configure BGP peering on their own routers. DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) threat mitigation is available as an add-on on IP Transit product.

DDoS Protection (Optional)
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection on IP Transit protects against volumetric attacks. These attacks send large volumes of traffic from distributed sources towards target IP addresses. The objective is to flood the various sources of ingress/egress so that desirable traffic cannot reach its destination.
5GN IP Transit includes RTBH (Remotely Triggered Black Hole) as a service inclusion. Optional, additional 5GN DDoS protection services are available which provide monitoring, notifications. Reporting and automated mitigation are available at an additional cost.
The 5GN DDoS Protection Platform, is purpose built to protect and secure against intended denial of service attacks. It has been tightly integrated into the 5GN global network infrastructure and is powered by Corero, a global leader in real-time network security and protection. The service has been deployed into our international and domestic PoP’s and features over 100Gbps of mitigation capacity across the IP Transit network footprint.
5G Networks DDoS protection solution mitigates a wide range of attacks, whilst maintaining the availability of applications and services it is protecting and without disrupting the delivery of legitimate traffic. Key features of this protection service include automatic detection, mitigation and scrubbing of traffic, in addition to portal access for reporting and manual scrubbing (blackholing) if required.
