[cross-posted to Asia-Pacific Operations <apops at apnic dot net> and the caching mailing list <ircache at nlanr dot net>] Hi, Talk of a Guam-based AP IX over at NANOG greatly interests me. Can we discuss it here at APOPS? The most important consideration for the would-be operator is how they'll get their money back. Aside from charging rentals for equipment colocation, I think a good source of revenue would be WWW colocation, they way (I think) the DEC PAIX does it. This would be great for sites which would interest only an Asia-Pacific market, with the rest of the world connecting via the Guam IX's link to the US? Another very important application for this IX would be another central caching node ala NLANR. This way, there would not only be IP-based peering but also application-based peering for HTTP, which is (and probably be continue to be for some time to come) the bandwidth-burner. However, the model here wouldn't be the free peering that you can get at *.cache.nlanr.net, but a fee-based one that is structured into the IX monthly fees. Thoughts? I think this can substantially help the current AP interconnectivity issues. -- miguel a.l. paraz <map at iphil dot net> iphil communications, makati city, ph PGP ID: 0x43F0D011 http://www.iphil.net isp/intranet design & implementation
