I am working with a company to form a network to resell Internet
access. Years of experience with the existing NSF based Internet
does not prepare me for the present confusion I see in the
commercial Internet world.
1. I am forced to assume that CIX membership does not connect me to
the NSF backbone therefore I am missing half of the Internet! If
this is true, how do I connect to the other half?
2. With CIDR and Number aggregation, we are expected to provide our
customer networks a number range from our larger range. However, we
cannot get a number range from INTERNIC. They expect us to get ours
from "our supplier". Is this CIX? Or do you have to contract with a
"supplier" who has NSF Backbone connections to get a IP number range?
I guess I thought that we would be a supplier!
What am I missing?
