Re the NAPs and connectivity. Are there varying degrees of
problems? What happens if Unipalm comes into MAE East and
peers with everyone there? Including Sprintlink, MCInet, and
ANS? Are we hearing that these three would refuse transit to
Unipalm's traffic that would need to go to NAPs in order to get
to the academic regionals? If such an arrangement would not
guarantee Unipalm adequate connectivity, why not? Where
would the failure points be and for what reasons?
Are we hearing that to get carriage across Sprint, MCI and ANS
that Unipalm would have to connect to all 3 NAPs??? Why? I
thought connecting to all 3 was necessary only where a net
wanted to be eligible for regional connectivity monies.
UUNet and PSI will get traffic to all the regionals through MAE
East or CIX??
Steve Goldstein's July 19th message to foreign nets (that I
understand drew an outstanding flame from Rick Adams)
cautioned foreign nets not to take their connectivity for
granted. Well let me ask for example what a net like Demos
that comes from Moscow into Alternet will have to do to be
assured complete connectivity?? Which I guess is saying what
will Alternet have to do to guarantee Demos connectivity?
