Route Servers Details
- BKNIX Route Servers consist of BIRD (BIRD Internet Routing Daemon) that support both a 2-byte & 4-byte AS number.
- There are different major BIRD versions.
- We recommend to establish sessions with more than one available route servers on the VLANs (possibly all) as when one route server goes into maintenance mode, this will not affect your connectivity.
We have two networks: IPv4 and IPv6, operating over a dedicated VLAN on the BKNIX infrastructure that can be implemented on an existing port with (802.1Q) Q-tagging.
Setup peering guideline
In the "router bgp (your AS)" configuration of your router to the BKNIX, you should add two peers to the AS63529.
router bgp (your AS)
no bgp enforce-first-as
no bgp default ipv4-unicast
