Configure Hash Serial and Forward for Edge IP BindingNoIf you have a large footprint environment, you may be limited by the reduced number of IP addresses that are available with the Anycast network that's used with Edge IP Binding. Hash Serial and Forward addresses this and can be implemented with help from your account rep. See Hash Serial and Forward for more information.
Configure Autonomous System Number SplitYesBy default when you enable Edge IP Binding for a Property Manager configuration, all requests for content had to incorporate Edge IP Binding and its associated network. Autonomous System Number Split lets you provide a list of eligible ASNs that should use Edge IP Binding, as well as an additional edge hostname that can be used to field all other (non-Edge IP Binding) requests. See Autonomous System Number Split for more information.
