BHNIX is the first and only Internet Exchange Point (IXP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As such, it contributes to the development of national Internet ecosystem. Some important benefits of the service are:
The BHNIX is open to any registered legal entity across the world. While natural partners are those ISPs with a Point of Presence in Bosnia and Herzegovina, BHNIX membership is open to all organizations that can benefit from peering their IP traffic.
The basic requirements to peer at BHNIX are:
First step is to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
It is necessary to establish physical connection to the (copper or fiber) to the BHNIX racks. You will receive information about this when you contact us by mail.
We are pleased to inform you that BHNIX, managed by the University of Sarajevo – UTIC, hosts K-root and AuthDNS servers. The implementation of this project was assisted by ISOC (Internet Society), which provided the necessary hardware for this purpose.
K-root DNS server (managed by RIPE NCC) is one of 13 root DNS servers. The K-root server basically uses IP anycast technology, in a way that directs traffic to the nearest K-root node.
The aim of this project is to provide BHNIX members and our users with better Internet traffic performance, and at the same time contribute to greater stability and faster response of K-root servers.
AutDNS (Authoritative DNS) hosts reverse DNS zones, ripe.net, and provides secondary services for some initial ccTLDs.
This project is an indicator of UTIC’s commitment to actively, in cooperation with domestic and foreign partners, participate and contribute to the improvement of Internet services.
