    I'm working on a small experiment which utilizes multiple outbound links
    (in the experiments case multiple consumer 3G connections [to 2 Sprint/2
    Verizon/1 AT&T], Time Warner Cable Modem and an SBC Global DSL connection.

    What is the best way to do outbound traffic engineering? I would like to
    be able to determine the best path possible and send traffic out the
    appropriate link.

    Could this be done with a copy of the BGP tables?

    Obviously as they are consumer connections, I wouldn't get a BGP feed so
    would need to download a copy, which has the risk of stale data. Perhaps
    some sort of multihop BGP setup?

    I have done some research and found a lot of references to small site
    multihoming without BGP for link redundancy but not for traffic
    engineering.

    Thanks.

    Charles
