Re: Has PSI been assigned network 1?

We have been working on breaking up the monolithic routing model on
Unix workstations.

I will be speaking more about this at NANOG, but see
http://www.ra.net/routing.arbiter/RT/mrt.html

The code and documentation are early alpha. There will probably
be a public alpha release sometime around the next NANOG.
