Re: The IESG Approved the Expansion of the AS Number Registry
The good news is that 32 bit ASN's won't be assigned by default until 2009. Starting on January 1, 32 bit ASN's will be assigned- but only to those people explicitly requesting them. All in all it seems like a sensible migration strategy.agreed, let's NOT do the v6 thing... do the 32-bit asn's give us more than just 'more bits' ? :) (Sorry, I couldn't resist). So, yes, let's get someone to start testing, I'd just caution on assigning the 32-bit asn's for real-users, since much of the net might not be able to use them, partial reachability will/could-be a problem.
