bgp (loaded question)
« on: November 30, 2008, 11:55:55 AM »

We get a routed /64, and optionally a routed /48. Are there advantages to running a bgp tunnel/session in this scenario?

BGP tunnels are for users with their own ASN and allocated IPv6 address space that want a chance to announce it. We only provide the point-to-point /64 and nothing routed, as we expect the user to announce their own space to us.
