An LOA will be sent to you along with instructions and IPs. Once the cross connect is complete simply set up your BGP session so testing may complete. Upon successful setup and testing your port will be set to the public VLAN and you will be able to peer automatically with all participants on the route server and unilaterally with anyone else you wish on the exchange.
Certain routes, such as L-Root and AS112, are only available on the route server
