What is an AS number?

An AS (autonomous system) number is a unique identifier that is attributed to a company operating a fully independent network by the network registries, such as RIPE. In order to obtain an AS number, it is mandatory to have at least two redundant connections through different IP transit providers, and to maintain infrastructure that's capable of Internet routing through the BGP protocol.

RIPE (Réseaux IP Européens), the organisation that manages the IP addresses in Europe has given us the AS number 44806. The AS numbers allow network operators to freely connect with other network operators.

Why an Autonomous System?

Being in possession of an AS number allows Kinamo to choose our uplink partners, which means we can offer our customers better bandwidth rates and guarantee the quality and redundancy of the Kinamo network.

Though the AS number in itself is no synonym for quality, the requirements to obtain one are an indication of the company's serieux, since the redundancy and infrastructure requirements are stringent.

Having an own AS number, Kinamo is also able to provide you with the IP addresses you need, whether they be PA addresses (provider aggregated) or PI addresses (provider independent), the latter allowing you to keep your IP address range when migrating to another operator.

Where can I see Kinamo's network information?

The Robtex site maintains a database of all Autonomous Systems on the Internet. Full information and routing for AS 44806 can be found at the following URL: https://www.robtex.com/as/as44806.html.
