Network Diagram

The MICE Equipment (.odg) diagram shows how the various switches are connected.

MICE Juniper Switch Configuration

This shows how the MICE side is configured and is for reference only. While some of this may be applicable to the member side, it is not a set of instructions on how to configure your device. For that, see the AMS-IX Config Guide.

MICE Cisco Switch Configuration

This shows how the MICE side is configured and is for reference only. While some of this may be applicable to the member side, it is not a set of instructions on how to configure your device. For that, see the AMS-IX Config Guide.

Route Servers

MICE Communities

The default behavior of the MICE route servers is to announce all routes to all peers. The following communities modify the annoucements:

  0:peerAS     -- Do not announce the route to the specified peer.

  0:53679      -- Only announce the route to specified peers (see below).
  53679:peerAS -- Announce the route to the specified peer.

For example, setting 0:1234 and 0:5678 causes the route server to announce the route to everyone except AS1234 and AS5678. This is an opt-out model.

To use an opt-in model, set 0:53679 plus the communities for each AS you want to receive the route. For example, setting 0:53679 53679:1234 53679:5678 causes the route servers to announce the route to only AS1234 and AS5678. If you choose an opt-in model, you may want to monitor the mice-discuss mailing list to hear about new members connecting.

Remote Switches

The process for connecting a new remote switch is as follows:

  1. The remote switch operator will provide a technical proposal to the board.
  2. The board will publish the proposal to the discussion list.
  3. After a reasonable comment period, the board will approve or deny the proposal.

Remote switch operators’ obligations include (but are not necessarily limited to):
