Welcome to AS400442.NET

Welcome to my networking playground! As a hobbyist, I’m passionate about exploring the intricacies of the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and how it shapes the internet. I’ve set up my own BGP Autonomous System (AS) as a sandbox to experiment with routing, peering, and policy decisions, all in the pursuit of expanding my knowledge and expertise in networking.

But my AS doesn’t stop at being just a learning tool. It also serves as a hosting platform for commercial and community projects. With my AS, I’m able to provide reliable and robust hosting services for businesses and organizations that require high-performance network connectivity and reliable internet access. From hosting websites, applications, and services, to providing custom solutions for specific networking requirements, my AS is a versatile platform that caters to the needs of various projects.

Not only does my BGP AS support commercial ventures, but it also fosters a sense of community. I actively participate in peering relationships with other ASes and contribute to the BGP routing ecosystem by adhering to industry best practices, following routing policies, and maintaining a secure and stable routing environment. I also collaborate with like-minded networking enthusiasts and share my knowledge through educational initiatives, workshops, and forums, helping others learn and grow in the field of networking.

So, whether you’re a business owner in need of reliable hosting or a networking enthusiast looking to learn and collaborate, my BGP AS is a hub for both commercial and community projects, driven by my passion for networking and my commitment to fostering a supportive learning environment. Come join me in exploring the fascinating world of BGP and unlocking new possibilities for your projects!

Thank you for considering peering with our Autonomous System (AS). We are excited to establish a settlement-free peering relationship with your AS. Our peering policy is simple and straightforward, with a focus on ensuring reliable and stable peering connections. Please review the following peering policy details:

  1. Settlement-Free Peering: We offer settlement-free peering, which means that we do not charge any fees for peering with your AS. We believe in mutual benefit through peering, and we do not engage in paid peering or require any financial compensation for peering arrangements.

  2. BGP Routing: We require that all peering connections use the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) for routing. This ensures efficient exchange of routing information and enables us to implement appropriate routing policies to ensure optimal routing decisions.

  3. 24-Hour Network Operations Center (NOC): We require that both parties maintain a fully operational and staffed Network Operations Center (NOC) that is available 24/7. This allows for prompt coordination and resolution of any network issues or incidents that may arise, ensuring timely communication and efficient troubleshooting.

  4. IP Space Authorization: Peers must be authorized to announce their IP space. The minimum IP space for IPv4 is a /24, and for IPv6 it is a /48. This ensures proper IP address allocation and management.

  5. No Transit Use: Peering connections should not be used for transit traffic. Peers should only exchange traffic that is destined for their own networks and not use the peering connection to transit traffic to other networks.

  6. Routing Policies: We will implement routing policies that follow industry best practices, including filtering of invalid routes, prefix length filtering, and AS-path filtering. We also expect our peers to adhere to similar routing policies to ensure proper routing hygiene and prevent any potential routing anomalies.

  7. This policy sets out AS400442 policy for settlement-free AS interconnection. It is not a guarantee, and other factors could come into play — AS400442 reserves the right to peer with or to not peer with anyone we choose.
  8.  Other Stuff: We reserve the right to terminate peering sessions or update this peering policy at any time. We believe that a settlement-free peering relationship based on these simple policies will be mutually beneficial, enabling efficient exchange of traffic and fostering a reliable and stable peering connection.

We believe that a settlement-free peering relationship based on these simple policies will be mutually beneficial, enabling efficient exchange of traffic and fostering a reliable and stable peering connection. Please contact our NOC to initiate discussions and establish peering with our AS.
