Re: ignore the word "radical"
JAK> Date: Thu, 16 Feb 2006 13:02:14 -0800 (PST) JAK> From: John A. Kilpatrick JAK> As long as you can find a customer who wants to be dual-homed and doesn't JAK> care about PI then great. But most folks who bother to be dual-homed My primary focus has been on the SOHO users who rarely have more than a /29, and frequently have a dynamically-assigned /32. Clearly, anyone who doesn't mind their IP changing weekly is not concerned about PI space. Portable space requires more prefixes or some sort of source routing. JAK> want/need PI space and don't want to renumber when changing JAK> providers. I know that was a consideration when I dual-homed. Are you saying that people who cannot obtain PI space would rather remain single-homed? That they'll forgo multihoming until they can justify PI space? That said... There have been claims that it's time to upgrade to hardware that can route /32s. If that is so, all this attempt to aggregate is moot, and it's time for people to drop prefix-length filters. I'm skeptical. I'm also curious: Who's first to put their money where their mouth is, prove that Moore's Law will save them, route /32s, and also remove their prefix count limits?
