Issues and future directions l.jpg

Hybrid L2/L3 devices like OSR/7600 present new challenges VA; and Dallas, TX

Risk of incorrect configuration may violate MOU

Future requirement for Jumbo Frames anticipated

ISPs currently moving to 4470 or 9192 core MTU

Peter Lothberg religion at NANOG22: core MTU at least 4470 is a MUST:

http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0105/real/iponly.ram

IXPs need to move in step with ISPs to avoid becoming the MTU bottleneck

Issues and Future Directions

Issues and future directions cont d l.jpg

IPv6 Unicast Exchange VLAN now available: VA; and Dallas, TX

No longer experimental

Driven by commercial forces

Bill Woodcock / PCH installing BGP archive collectors in Ashburn and San Jose

10GigE: some disruptive price per port is on the horizon :-)

Multicast—still experimental (as usual ;-)

Issues and Future Directions (cont’d)

Internet core exchange ice l.jpg

A natural evolution to more efficient, high-capacity private peering

A central, neutral meet-me in major cities avoids a metro SONET mess^Hh

Geared toward folks that have OC48+ backbones across western, central, and eastern U.S.

More than 15 companies in the process of moving to Equinix ICE peering architecture

Major domestic, international, or global ISPs.

GigE switch port is bundled with the service, ICE participants are free to use this for certain peers

Internet Core Exchange (ICE)

 2000 Equinix, All rights reserved


Internet core exchange cont d l.jpg

Architecture is simple, and benefits obvious: peering

You can participate whenever you choose, unlike metro peering rings which need to be designed up front with participants in mind

Avoids closed rings that limit participation

Eliminates requirement for all participants to adopt the same technology

Much faster and more flexible provisioning

No more local loop facilities issues

Much more scalable
