The main issues they raise are expensive hardware, ISP capabilities and
getting your own IPs & ASs. We use Linux firewalls to do our BGP, so
there was no extra hardware needed.... The ISPs we talked to had no
problems with BGP because they use it themselves, and we wanted our own
IPs anyway just in case our provider went bust. ;-) We had to do the
paperwork to get AS numbers and the firewalls took a bit of tinkering
with, but that was it.
