MN-IX is responsible for the correct functioning of its distributed switching infrastructure. The MN-IX service consists of delivering, operating and interconnecting member ports on our switches, including service from these member ports up to and including the local MN-IX patch panel. The customer is responsible for the necessary cabling between the member's router and the MN-IX switch patch panel through the arrangements made with an MN-IX co-location or, in case of a remote layer-2 connection, arrangements made with a partner/carrier. The customer is always responsible for arranging their own BGP peering with other MN-IX members and for the correct functioning of their own infrastructure, i.e. router equipment.
