BGP and IPv4 are Hot Again: Tuning for Peering & IRR
Time 12/11/19 09:30AM-09:50AM
This session will cover the community's IRR effort as well as routing optimization/routing intent. Throughout the fall, the community held office hours to discuss the importance of IRR. The rules for interconnecting networks that form the global Internet are changing in ways that impact the Internet2 community. While documenting routes in Internet Routing Registries (IRR) has always been a best practice, it has recently become a mandatory requirement as important peer networks are starting to use this data to improve routing security. Properly prioritizing the routes ensures the use of R&E paths to reach the other R&E community members and also key commercial cloud resources. Additionally, the session will cover routing optimization/ routing intent. Properly advertising routes to commodity providers and I2PX can help the commercial cloud providers select the best path to reach the R&E community.
The Routed Services Futures Working Group
recommended the moving of NET+ cloud providers from the R&E to the I2PX network. To ensure continued access, connectors will need to work with campuses on access and prioritization of routes.
