Technical Information (Arequipa)
We currently have two Route Servers available for the exchange of IPv4 routes and two Route Servers for the exchange of IPv6 routes. In addition, these Route Servers are in two different locations, which allows us to provide a service with maximum availability even in case of unforeseen events.
Our route server supports filtering based on IRRDB objects, as well as lists of allowed prefixes. The information on prefixes for the maximum prefix limit is obtained from the PeeringDB records, so it is important to keep them updated.
The objective of the Route Servers in Perú IX (PIT Peru sac) (pitperu.net) is to facilitate the implementation of the Peering agreements. It is important to mention that the route servers do not participate in the routing of the traffic, but rather they deliver the information about the routes that are learned by it, but all the traffic is still routed at layer 2 level by the switch fabric.
For security reasons, BGP sessions are established with an MD5 password. If you need to change your password you can contact our support team at [email protected].
|Route Server||Dirección IP||ASN||Soporta|

|ARQ-RS2-IPv4||22.214.171.124||64128||Sólo prefijos IPv4|
|ARQ-RS1-IPv6||2803:cd60:6412:8::1||64128||Sólo prefijos IPv6|

Why use Route Servers?
- Simplify Peering, reduce workload
Simplify configuration to achieve the highest possible number of routes on the Perú IX (PIT Peru sac) platform. Holding multiple bilateral sessions can quickly turn into a huge additional workload. The Route Servers allow the Peering to be simple, for example when a new participant joins, you should not be updating the BGP filters every week, but you can automatically control it with the max-prefix limit. This way you will get the maximum benefit from Perú IX (PIT Peru sac) without it being an additional workload.
- A backup to your bilateral sessions
There are times when bilateral BGP sessions can crash, in these cases having the sessions to the Route Servers will allow you to keep the traffic flowing without interruptions. Which gives you the flexibility to be able to solve the problems of the bilateral sessions without the rush of a route drop.
