Checklist of requirements for equipment connected to the exchanges we operate:
- Do not send BPDUs
- Do not send CDP or LLDP packets
- Do not send directed broadcasts packets
- Do not send keepalive packets
For configuration hints for various vendors check out Euro-iX Configration Samples
We've provided sample configurations for your convenience.
