BGP Flowspec support
Probe Networks now offers BGP flowspec support for IP Transit customers.
With BGP flowspec its possible to advertise firewall rules via BGP to remove unwanted traffic or mitigate DoS attacks. Since the firewall rules will automatically be placed on probe networks' routers, no traffic is passing to the customers router. BGP flowspecs has been specified in RFC 5575. For devices not supporting BGP flowspec we still offer BGP blackholing via bgp communities.
BGP flowspecs has to be enabled on a per-customer basis. Please contact us to have flowspec enabled for your BGP sessions.
