BGP Routing Policy AS7195

AS7195 – BGP ROUTING POLICY 

EdgeUno is an Internet Service Provider and Managed Services company that provides infrastructure at national or global scale. 

This document provides information about our routing policy, and how customers can control their prefixes inside our network.  

EdgeUno have a selective peering policy, and our network information can be found updated at https://www.peeringdb.com/asn/7195  

 

Local Preference  

By default, all received customer routes are assigned a local preference of 300 in Edgeuno Backbone. Customer can change this preference using the following BGP communities: 

Community  Local Preference  Effect 
7195:290  290  Used to customer backup when multihomed to Edgeuno Backbone 
7195:200  200  Set preference equal to peer routes 
7195:100  100  Set preference equal to transit routes


Traffic Engineering
 

The use of this communities allow customer to prevent their prefixes from being advertised to specific peers or prepend their routes to a subset of peers. 

Not all our peers are eligible to traffic engineering. Bellow we have a table with a list of peers and transit connections that accept this manipulation. 

Traffic engineering communities are formatted   AAYZZ : ASN   where:  

AA   Private code and will be always 64.  

Y   Action code where: 

0 – Suppress the announce 

1 – Prepends 1 AS-SET inside Edgeuno backbone 

2 – Prepends 2 AS-SET inside Edgeuno backbone 

3 – Prepends 3 AS-SET inside Edgeuno backbone 

 

ZZ  Country Code where: 

01 – USA 

51  Peru 

52 – Mexico 

54 – Argentina  

55 – Brazil  

56 – Chile  

57 – Colombia  

Example:   64055:6762 will suppress the announce of tagged prefix to AS6762 (Sparkle) in Brazil. 

                    64357:3356 will add three as-path prepends in prefixes announced to CenturyLink in Colombia
