We are route64.org (AS212895) a non-profit organization which offering free tunnelbroker IPv6 and transit services to the Internet community since years. ROUTE64 offers a fully automated platform with self service portal to generate IPv6 tunnelbroker and IPv6 transit services with PoPs around the world.
Our self service portal is a homemade platform which is not availble on any other website. Just designed and developed for the use of ROUTE64. Manager controls all tunnel creations, BGP session setups, creation of tunnelbroker and subnets including features like IPAM or prefix filter management. It controls all routers and nodes. An agent is installed on each router and node and covers the provisioning of tunnels, interfaces or BGP sessions. It also collects all BGP sessions information and forward it to the controller which provides the head of the platform and the dashboard to the users. Manager is fully portable and exists in a bunch of docker containers deployed via docker-compose.
Our routing platform is vyos based but fully customized with bird as BGP daemon, IS-IS as IGP and vpp with linuxcp plugin as data plane to achive high performance and >10 mpps per node.
We, ROUTE64, are connected to a lot of Internet Exchanges and have dozends of private Peerings like Cloudflare, Google, Meta and a lot more. You can connect directly via Internet Exchange to us without any performance loss and you don't need any type of tunnel. We trying extend our networks as fast as possible to bring ROUTE64 to your exchange.
Tunnels are needed in case of missing exchange points or you are using us as tunnelbroker for IPv6. We have a lot of tunnel endpoint nodes distributed around the world. For sure not in every country but on the central points where connectivity is optimized. This setup ensures that every user can join ROUTE64 with lower lantency. You are missing an endpoint, contact us or better sponsor one to us to provide it to the community.
