Internap route optimization

No particular experience with Internaps optimization...however I 
wouldn't be that sure if I would use it within our networks, because you 
always have the conflict of this not being their core business as they 
want to sell their optimized IP transit.

However, some time ago we tried Border6 in an evaluation and then 
finally put it into production. Not only the optimization is nice, but 
the reporting is so extremely detailed making it very transparent where 
the transit has congestion issues and which prefix is routed (in and 
out) through which upstream.

For sure traffic engineering/optimization is not a trivial task but 
requires deep thinking and understanding of the whole BGP and routing
