AS203729 and AS42615
AS203729 and AS42615 are utilized as two separate networks. While internal routes exist between the two, public announcements are not generally made between the two.
(due to technical requirements, AS42615 may appear in the ASPATH for AS203729 announcements even though there is no AS42615 presence at a site)
Both ASNs are open to peer with all networks present on any mutual exchange.* PNIs are only available for peers that use 2 gbps or more (60th percentile).
AS203729 may be found on the following exchanges:
AS42615 may be found on the following exchanges:
AS203729 is used for lower traffic, latency-sensitive applications, while AS42615 is used for high-bandwidth applications.
To keep costs low, some AS203729 points of presence operate on virtual infrastructure. Higher bandwidth points of presence, such as Kansas City, operate from physical hardware.
AS42615 is operated entirely on owned, physical infrastructure. The primary point of presence is a rack in Hurricane Electric's Fremont 2.
Both ASNs operate strict route filtering; filters are regenerated every 24 hours from RPKI/IRR. Prefixes smaller than a /24 (v4) or /48 (v6) will be filtered.
RPKI (on all prefixes except those provided by AMPRnet) and IRR entries are present for all announced prefixes (under the AS-SET AS-IGLOO22225). Static filters are used on all exported prefixes.
Neither AS42615 nor AS203729 are used as "research" or "experimental" networks. Both are responsible for production traffic (such as this website!).
*Neither AS42615 nor AS203729 will peer (or continue to peer) with networks that are known to base their business on hosting illegal (within the state of California or the United States) or unethical content.
