A heads up from CityLink Peering (http://nzix.net)
Hurricane Electric (AS6939) are in the process of connecting to the Auckland Peering Exchange (APE) and you can expect to see an increase in the number of prefixes once they're connected.
We'll send another post to NZNOG when we've a confirmed turn-up date. We're going to follow the sensible lead of ix.nz here (credit where it's due Joe) and only open the filters for Hurricane Electric up on one of our route servers (rs2.ape.nzix.net) initially. We'll open up rs1.ape.nzix.net when we see all peers functioning normally on rs2.ape.nzix.net.
Hurricane Electric have advised us that they will advertise approximately 28,000 IPv6 routes and up to 57,000 IPv4 routes initially. Additionally they've suggested prefix limit adjustments to cater for increases from them of 65k IPv6 and 175k IPv4 routes.
