Day One: Deploying Junos Route Servers

Build a Junos® OS Route Server for your Internet Exchange.

This book targets network engineers, designers, and architects who are involved in Internet Exchange Point (IXP) operations and intend to deploy Junos® OS-based route servers. The Junos OS has included EBGP Route Server requirements since 17.4R1, and is considered a feature rich, high-performing route server implementation. Barth and Aelmans provide Junos implementation tips and tricks, as well as general Internet Exchange configuration considerations such as the usage of policies, communities, and routing security methods like IRR/RPKI. Also covered are RS scaling, filtering, and validation issues.

“Whether you’ve been running an IXP for quite some time or planning to start one, this Day One book helps you deploy your route servers – a vital service that exists in every IXP network and that handles prefix propagation between members. The authors include all their field knowledge and best practices to set up new versions of route servers for not only the beginner but also for more experienced engineers to smoothly transition from simple instances to secure deployments that will be MANRS complaint.” – Stavros Konstantaras, NOC Engineer, AMS-IX
