Subject: EdgeRouter Infinity as medium-sized "IXP Peering Router"?
Some friends of mine are operating a nonprofit (on shoe string) and looking
to connect some CDN caches to an IX fabric. A BGP speaking device is needed
between the caches and the BGP peers connected to the fabric. The BGP
speaker is needed to present the peers on the IX with a unified view of the
assemblage of CDN nodes.
I was wondering whether anyone was experience with the "EdgeRouter Infinity
XG" device, specifically in the role of a simple peering router for a
couple of tens of thousands of routes. (I'd point default to the left and
take just the on-net routes on the right to reduce the table size
I hope the device can do at least 2xLACP trunks, has a sizable FIB, is
automatable (supports idempotency), can forward IMIX at line-rate, *flow,
and exposes some telemetry via SNMP.
Any note sharing would be appreciated!
