- Action 1: Prevent propagation of incorrect routing information We have outbound filteringBGP announcements with Transit and Peering partners. We manually validate new announcements of networks from our customers networks. we add these validated announcements to our outbound route-maps on peering-and transit bgp sessions. we utilise the max-prefix out feature of OpenBGPD in our peering sessions with Transit, we utilise the max-prefix feature on all BGP sessions with customers

We give training and tutorials on a voluntary basis at BSD Conferences
- Action 4: Facilitate validation of routing information on a global scale We have ROAs on all our announcements, and we validate the ROAs from our customers before manually adding route filters to allow learning the customers announcements. we have RPSL and we ask our customers to update the RPSL when making or changing BGP announcements, and we only update the Route Filters after ROAs and RPSL and Route Objects are appropriately Setup
Why Wireless Connect Ltd. Supports MANRS
We believe in a free and open Internet and we believe that people are at their best when they are communicating openly honestly and in good faith. We try to live up to the ideals of Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Worship, and the right of people to exchange ideas in good faith. We try to set up our infrastructure so that our customers can communicate with other people around the world without interference and without manipulating their traffic. By joining MANRS, and implementing the spirit of MANRS on the edge of our network we can help ensure that more people can communicate freely and not have interruptions of service due to bad actors, and of course misconfigurations of routers. We take a pragmatic yet risk adverse approach to our route filtering for bgp customers, our upstream providers and bgp peers on IXP points we participate in. we actively encourage our bgp customers to implement best practices on their bgp sessions, and on their network edge.CTO Wireless Connect Ltd.
