Amazon AS16509 peering... how long to wait?

I applied for peering, received an email, setup the BGP session, waited about a month. Then 3 weeks ago my BGP session with Amazom came up, but with zero routes. I assume I am in some kind of test/waiting period, but after three weeks, I thought I would be getting routes by now. Emails to the peeringdb POC have not returned anything. Anyone here from AS16509, can this be bumped? We are AS17185, and peering is on DE-CIX NYC.



I will connect you to right people offlist

I am surprised its taking that long

From what I’ve heard, their peering department is really behind on processing new peer turn-ups.

Yeah, it takes a while.

My peering request turned 1 year old on Friday.There was cake.

Same here.

We’ve received configuration details in Mar 12 and we’ve completed the configuration on the same day.

Then we didn’t hear any news from them.


I submitted requests for multiple networks over the course of a year. One got acknowledged and had a few week wait from when the session came up to routes\traffic passing. The others have been ignored.

Chase them down at the next Nanog… I had to do that for two large content providers.
