Re: Issue AS and Subnet Announcment on BGP - Conflict with a majorTelCo - RESOLVED

  • From: Alain Hebert

1. Get the peers involved.

We got help from bigger players than them.

2. Get more specific announcement of the subnets in question.

Be a good netadmin, don't leave them for too long...

3. Get your management involved. They can call upon legal means of making it happen.

Remember to keep the names of the tech/admin you've talk too.

Worked for us...


4. ARIN could re-assign the subnet to a new AS, they where very eager too help but we didn't need to do it.

Have fun...

A. Yeap we got the ok
B. I used /21 instead
C. Once that TelCo stop being a child we'll be back to /20, I'll like to keep it clean.

We had excellent support from the peers of that TelCo, so the matters should be resolved today and the subnet back to be announced in his origial form.

Have fun...

We're already working on making contact with the upstreams, but you're right I forgot about making more specific announcement.

Thanks again.

Just don't be too surprised if...

A. Your vendors blocks more specifics from you.
B. No one listens to your more specifics because they are TOO specific.
C. You contribute just a little bit more to the de-aggregation of the Internet (tongue in cheek).
