Each member must have a valid non private ASN (Autonomous System Number), use BGP version 4 for peerings and provide a 24x7 operational contact.
Only free of charge traffic is allowed over MINAP: members shall not sell peering or transit over the MINAP infrastructure.
Members shall not give transit to the address space of the peering LAN. MINAP connected interfaces must only use the IP addresses and netmasks (prefix lengths) assigned to them by MINAP.
Each member is physically connected to the MINAP switch via a dedicated cable. Cable sharing is not allowed and only one MAC address is authorised per member port. Members shall not connect intermediate layer 2 devices between the MINAP switch and their peering router unless preventively approved by the MINAP NOC.
Features and link-local protocols like, but not limited to: Proxy ARP, ICMP redirects, the Spanning Tree Protocol, IGMP, CDP, VTP, LLDP, OSFP, PIM and ICMPv6 ND-RA are not allowed and must be disabled.
Frames sent to the MINAP port must have one of the following ethertypes: 0x0800 (IPv4), 0x0806 (ARP) or 0x86dd (IPv6). Frames shall not be addressed to a multicast or broadcast MAC destination address except when needed by the ARP and ICMPv6-ND protocols.
MINAP cannot be responsible for direct or indirect consequential loss, loss of profits, business, revenue, goodwill, or anticipated savings resulting from a MINAP service outage.
