Private ASNs

currently in the RFC editer queue expands the private ASN range by adding:

   "The end
   of the "32-bit Autonomous System Numbers" range will be reserved for
   Private Use, and a size of 94,967,295 (value to replace TBD1 below)
   corresponding to the range of 4200000000 (value to replace TBD2

   Autonomous System numbers from the "16-bit Autonomous System Numbers"
   registry, namely 64512 - 65534 inclusive.
