Abstract: The Regional Registries commenced allocation of 4-Byte AS numbers as of 1 January 2007. What are the implications of this for the existing 2-Byte AS BGP deployed base? What needs to change in the 2-Byte world and what stays the same? This presentation describes the transition mechanisms for 4-Byte AS numbers and the implications of this to the 2-Byte BGP world, both in terms of BGP configuration and the ISP\'s Operational Support Systems.
