BGP Community 55002:165 and Prefix Length /29 - /32


To minimize service degradation for customers using Routed DDoS protection, Silverline will engineer internal traffic routing between Scrubbing Centers for a CIDR prefix length between /29 - /32.

  • In the example illustrated below, the customer or Silverline may detect routing anomalies or impact to the QoS in the US-West Scrubbing Center.
  • Customers can then select to advertise the route using a BGP Community string to send traffic through the US-East Scrubbing Center.
