Benefits of IX-OKC are managed through a mutual peering agreement conformed to by all parties. IXP members normally specify the routes through their peering relationships. They may choose to route the traffic through their own addresses or addresses of other providers in the network. In some scenarios, the IXP serves as a backup link to allow traffic to pass through in case of a direct link failure.
