Re: BGP and aggregation

Don't forget that if both sites use the same as even if the connection 
link drops they will not be able to see each  other over the upstream 
provider as routers won't take the srutes from the same as.  If this 
isn't a problem don't worry about it.  If you wish to preserve 
connectivity between cities you should have a back-up link or use 
different as's or gre tunnels:).
