IBM Global Network position re peering protocol, as explained earlier in
teleconf, is we peer exclusively using BGP-4. We see no nationale in using
OSPF to collect and distribute interprovider routes. In fact we have
started to use BGP Communities within our global Internet BB to direct
routes which previously was done by OSPF, thus further reducing OSPF role.
Under the NZIX switching network we wish to pursue BGP peerings with all
ISPs there who are capable, including Waikato. We await for Waikato to
fully implement its BGP capability.

Subject: RE: BGP over NZIX -comments from Waikato about Joe Ableys posting
on this topic
We(Waikato) currently still use OSPF on NZIX to collect NZ routes. And this
is vital to our traffic metering. A new metering system is being built to
use BGP4 to download NZ routes from our traffic provider. Once this has
done, we will be very keen to download NZ routes from major ISPs on NZIX
OSPF can be decommissioned.
