STAR TAP ITNRouter and Routing Policy

  • STAR TAP ITN is AUP Free

    • Accepts routes & traffic from any participating National Research Network (NRN)

      (does not include commercial/commodity traffic & routes)

    • Configured to avoid accidental use of ST ITN for intra-continental/intra-regional routing (e.g. Singaren <–> APAN via ST ITN)

    • Networks may opt out of exchanging routes with subset of participants (has not been requested to date but is an option)

SUMMARY

  • Problem:

    • optimizing International Connectivity to North American National Research Networks

    • not all peering points offer Layer 2 bilateral peering solutions from a single vendor

    • ensuring International Networks get full connectivity

  • Solution:

    • extend the STAR TAP International Transit Network to other geographic locations
