You must provide :

- It is necessary to “speak” BGP.
Minimal requirements of hardware configuration:
- CPU: 1x2GHz,
- RAM: 16GB,
- Disk: 50GB,
- Network: 1xGe NIC (2xGe – IX case)
- Out of band Management interface/virtual console (iDRAC, iLO, VNC, etc.)
- 1 link of 2 Mbps bandwidth
- 2 IPv4 addresses in host segment, for administration (1 for unicast access to machine, and 1 for iLO)
- IPv6 connectivity (desirable)
- A BGP peer that will provide transit
