RE: Global Crossing Contact / BGP and SONET interaction question
You should be able to tell from (cisco speak) show controller pos a/b The counters should be increasing if there are any issues with the line or the path Make sure both ends sync from the line (as it's a syncronous link). A path switch event with won't impact BGP, if it did the entire internet would be a constant flap. Typically path switches are 50ms in the metro and not much longer on long distance (or is done at the optical layer). It also could be that the protection may need to be uni-directional. Make sure you set scramble on the link as some multiplexers still have inband traffic signal issues that IP traffic can trigger. Regards, Neil.
