Roles: Commercial teams, peering managers


Transit traffic in internet networks is becoming increasingly volatile with frequent changes in incoming and outgoing traffic. A sudden drop in your network’s traffic could mean one of two things: Your customer has set up direct peerings or your competitors have established a shorter route.


Establish direct peering to win back lost traffic, ensuring your customer doesn’t terminate the underutilized port.


  • The commercial team monitors the traffic closely in Flow Explorer to get a holistic view of the network reacting swiftly to traffic shifts.
  • Peering manager / account manager of an existing customer bookmarks the filtered customer AS to monitor the traffic every day and notices a drop in traffic.
  • Peering manager reaches out to the customer to enquire about the traffic drop and negotiate a better PNI contract with the customer, making sure all important routes are directly connected


  • Increased port utilization per customer
  • Minimized churn
  • Satisfied customers
