BGP Route Object

Hi.

I have an IPv4 Block (/24) from APNIC. I want to advertise the Route through SingTel. Before advertisement I want to clearify one thing:

Is it necessary to create the Route Object (at APNIC web site) for my /24 Network? Or without creating the Route Object my advertisement will still work?

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

BGP Route Object

Nazmus,

this is an excerpt from the APNIC registration regulations:

According to the APNIC address space management policy, it is not mandatory for you to register a route object. However, from a network operation point of view, you may be required to register a route object with APNIC. Some ISPs and network operators use route object information in the Internet Routing Registry database to:

  • Debug routing problems
  • Automatically configure backbone routers
  • Perform network planning

We suggest you discuss the requirement of registering route objects with your ISP.

My guess is that SingTel will want the registration, you need to check with them to be sure.

HTH,

Georg

BGP Route Object

It will work in this case but you need to agree a regular BGP session or a SP subnet forwarding upto the NSP or NAP that is serving your region.
