It is a peering point I run right now that I call the NIP or network interchange point. There is no Internet access offered, it is a pure local peering point. Current size is: nip-1.mpls>show ip bgp sum BGP router identifier 126.96.36.199, local AS number 7461 BGP table version is 1056, main routing table version 1056 89 network entries and 128 paths using 12017 bytes of memory 21 BGP path attribute entries using 2396 bytes of memory Dampening enabled. 0 history paths, 0 dampened paths 27 received paths for inbound soft reconfiguration BGP activity 231/142 prefixes, 457/329 paths Now'days, though, the peer count is down as ISPs move onto the borg or become direct customers of ours :( Current system, though, is now a Cisco 4700M with 64MB of RAM. Anyone can connect, only requires the entity to provide their own connectivity, usually FR is just fine, but we do have one peer that brought their own PtP into our space.
