Technical Recommendation:

1. BGP router connecting to IXP should be dedicated one. International Gateway routers should not connect to IX.
2. That router should not have International routes and default gateway.
3. Your downstream links for IP Transit service should not directly connect to this router.
4. Your router should have only your local routes and IXP’s routes. Your downstream routes via IP Transit, should not be in this router.
