For those sites who BGP peer with both T1 NSS and T3 ENSS, please note
the following:

By default, cisco will advertise all the routes learn from one neighbor
to the other neighbor(s).  For example, we have seen a lot of cases,
that the cisco advertise whatever it learns from T3 back to T1 and
vise versa.  That is a lot of overhead and should be avoided.


cisco's lastest software 9.0 (tli130?) and above does provide a means
of building a firewall to prevent the advertisement.  Below is a 
sample config from Eric Sherk of SuraNet (Thanks Eric) which shows the
syntaxt for filtering.  This syntax is also useful for other inbound and
outbound filtering based on AS for each neighbor.  Have fun!
