As a member of FCIX, participants get direct access to services provided by other members of the Cabal.
FCIX operates two route servers on .253 and .254 to aid in ramping new members into the FCIX BGP community quickly. Addressing and ASN information for the route servers are listed on the participants page. These route servers enforce IRR-based route filtering, as well as several communities to suppress or prepend routes to other peers using the route servers.
