The birth of a new backbone!

Everyone in the R&E community should now be getting the new Internet2 network backbone advertisement. And it goes a little something like this, hit it!

chrobb@InGigUL-re0> show route

inet.0: 204220 destinations, 384262 routes (204212 active, 6 holddown, 8092 hidden)
+ = Active Route, - = Last Active, * = Both *[BGP/170] 00:11:09, MED 0, localpref 300
AS path: 11537 I
> to via ge-0/2/0.10

This will become part of our standard techno vocabulary very soon, but I don't have enough room in my head right now to remember it. Thank god someone invented computers to have a place for me to store my network advertisement reminders.

No DNS on this yet. Need to start discussing how to handle that. There are some that want everything to be "", but there are some technical hurdles there. Hope to have this worked out this week so I can go back to forgetting what the network advertisement is. :-)
