Backbone provider Global Crossing, which previously peered from Atrivo/Intercage, More on Atrivo-Intercage-Estdomains, has negated the decision by transit provider UnitedLayer to give Intercage upstream service.
“It has come to our attention that United Layer is now routing traffic for Intercage (AS 27595) over the Global Crossing network,” Andrew Ramsey, Global Crossing’s manager of information security operations, wrote in an email sent to UniterLayer on Wednesday morning. “Intercage was removed from our network for violating our acceptable use policy, and is not welcome to return under any circumstance.”

After being notified of more problems on the network this week, UnitedLayer pulled the plug on Intercage late Thursday afternoon, said UnitedLayer Chief Operating Officer Richard Donaldson. “We decided that, given the stuff that was going on and with a couple of infractions that we were made aware of, that they needed to purge themselves of any [malicious] stuff that remained,” he said.
