Hello,

On our side we're using things like :

xe3-3-0-154.tcr1.th2.par.as8218.eu

xe3-3-0 : interface (Juniper behaviour)
154 : vlan (if we use vlans on the interface)
tcr1 = first transport core router
th2 = datacenter (Telehouse 2, generally 2 to 4 letters at our appreciation)
par = city (Paris, using the 3 letters IATA City code, not the Airport code
such as CDG for Paris)
