NaMeX has deployed a route server on each peering LAN. A route server is an aid for peering that simplifies the configuration of BGP sessions: by configuring a single BGP session with the route server it is possible to receive routes from all other members connected to the route server, in a fully transparent way without any difference with respect to multiple BGP sessions established with each other member.
Route server can be used as a backup for BGP sessions established among member pairs, at the same time, by peering with the route server new members can optimize and speed up their operations since day one. Moreover, route server performs an initial filtering on routes received from its peers, thus guaranteeing greater reliability of announced routes (protection against leaks, hijacks, announcement of martians and default routes).
Detailed info can be found in our HOWTO.
These are the data needed to setup BGP sessions with the route servers:
Routes received from each peer are filtered according to data registered in the Internet Routing Registry, each member must provide an AS-SET macro containing all ASes that are advertised by it on the NAP. Route server and filters configuration is updated once a day (early in the morning). Check your daily generated filters here!
