Re: ISP support for use of 4-byte ASNs in peering

Granted I've never worked outside academia but the me3400 is otherwise a cost effective gig-e demarc for very simple bgp multihoming.

They have made a strategic decision to not implement a simple software update support RFC4893 [it has been 4 years] and to set an artificial price point on entry. Fine, that is their choice. There are other vendors offering 4 byte ASN in simliar products at or near this price point and we'll probably have to move to them.

While attempting to focus on ISPs there is still [unbelievably] a vendor

remains that some products [Cisco me3400e] have yet to implement support.

the me3400 is a metro core ethernet switch with L3 extensions.  It's not
intended as a border router.  If you use the wrong tool for the job...
