Route Prefix Advertisement Control by Standard and Large BGP Community

With immediate effect, HKIX route servers support route prefix advertisement control by standard and large BGP community.

Send prefix to $Peer-AS only 4635:$Peer-AS

Do not send prefix to $Peer-AS 0:$Peer-AS

Decommission of HKIX Connections and the Old Switches at HKIX1 by 30 Jun 2024

HKIX has deployed a new core site (HKIX1c) to enhance the reliability and scalability of HKIX. This new core site is located on Hong Kong Island, running in active-active mode with independent power grid of HKIX1b at CUHK (in New Territories) and equipped with next-generation switches and state-of-art technology for maximum resilience. For more information about the new HKIX architecture, you may refer to our network diagram at https://www.hkix.net/hkix/hkixdiag.htm

HKIX1b and HKIX1c will be the two core sites of HKIX which provide full resilience of core and access switches and route servers for participants to connect. In order to enjoy the benefits fully, all HKIX connections at HKIX1 will be migrated to HKIX1c and the old switches at HKIX1 will be decommissioned by 30 Jun 2024.

While HKIX will assist and assign new ports at HKIX1c for the migration, HKIX participant has to contact your local loop (FTNS) provider for the local loop relocation. HKIX will NOT be responsible for any relocation or upgrade charges associated with your FTNS providers or any other parties. Please contact your FTNS providers for the local loop relocation arrangement.

HKIX Team will further contact you by email for the migration steps and necessary arrangement if you have HKIX connection(s) at HKIX1.

You are encouraged to start the migration as soon as possible to enjoy the full benefits of new switches earlier and to avoid last-minute rush.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at provision@hkix.net
