Autonomous System 44954

AS44954 is operated by Alex Brown as an experimental IPv6 Anycasting network. Further information on AS44954 can be found by reviewing our BGPView entry. All announced prefixes from AS44954 will be included in AS-AS44954 verifiable with IRR Explorer. For inquiries and peering requests please visit PeeringDB for current contact information. Please view our status page for up to date network issues.

Peering Policy

AS44954 has an open peering policy and is willing to establish peering via tunnels. However, in order to peer with AS44954 the following requirements must be met:

  • Public ASN
  • Public address space (at least one /48 of IPv6 space)
  • ASN record in an IRR and PeeringDB
  • Technical contact capable of resolving BGP routing issues
  • BGP MD5 password supported and preferred, not a requirement
  • Aggregation of routes is preferred if possible
  • No route of last resort (default route) will be advertised
  • 44954 asks that peers advertise all their public routes in all locations where they peer with 44954.
BGP Communities

Communities are used in order to prioritize locally learned transit routes while providing geopgraical redundancy incase of transit failure. Locally originated prefixes are also tagged allowing proopgation control. Peers can influence routing decisions by tagging action communities to announced prefixes.
