ROPN-IX is meant to be an open internet exchange for everyone. Even if it is legally represented by LayerBridge, the ROPN-IX project is not intended to be a commercial project, so it’s main purpose is just to interconnect networks, not to make money by interconnecting networks.
However, some facilities may require some fees for cross connects. Those fees must be paid by the joining member for both ends.
All amounts earned from services’ monthly fees will be used only for purchasing different required networking items (such as SFP+ Transceivers, FO Cables … etc.) or upgrading existing items to ensure the best performance for the IXP Project.
Even if we do not directly support tunneled interfaces, you might still be able to join the IX for hobby/experimental purposes with a VM, as a resold customer of LayerBridge.
