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:

CommunityLocal PreferenceEffect
7195:290290Used to customer backup when multihomed to EdgeUno Backbone
7195:200200Set preference equal to peer routes
7195:100100Set preference equal to transit routes
7195:9090Set preference lower than transit routes

Traffic Engineering

The use of this communities allow customer to prevent their prefixes from being advertised to peers or prepend their routes to a subset of peers. Not all our peers are eligible to traffic engineering. (consult network engineering for specific ASNs)

Below 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
  • ZZ Country Code where:
    • 01 – USA
    • 02 – Puerto Rico
    • 49 – Germany
    • 50 – Costa Rica
    • 51 – Peru
    • 52 – Mexico
    • 54 – Argentina
    • 55 – Brazil
    • 56 – Chile
    • 57 – Colombia
    • 59 – Ecuador
    • 64 – Guatemala
    • 90 – Turkey

Example:

64055:63000 will suppress the announce of tagged prefix to all Transits in Brazil.

Blackhole
