This Autonomous System number is part of a project with an ambitious list of goals:
It all started after a discussion with Silvan from OpenFactory and the discovery that we could easily run a fiber from my house to infrastructure they run. This was a lucky discovery, as it now allows me to have a BGP speaker directly at home, from which I announce my IPv6 and IPv4 networks.
This has opened a lot of opportunities, and I've started thinking about how this could be interesting and become useful for the whole community.
More in detail, what I aim at doing in the near future is:
|Set up a L2 to NTT Zurich
|Set up peering at Swiss-IX
|Set up peering at CH-IX
|Set up second L2 to NTT with ipng.ch
After all this is done, there will most likely be more.
I will update this as the infrastructure grows.
