      	Asia and Pacific Survey of Bandwidth, Peering,
      	          and Regional Connections
      	----------------------------------------------
      
      
      Hello Everyone,
      
      Here’s the latest update on big bandwidth links. I’m now
      adding the following information:
      
      + AS numbers
      + trace sites to validate the path
      + contact person in case your interested in peering
      
      
      Please look through the information and forward updates,
      corrections, and new information. If you know of any network
      maps from any of the ISPs below, please forward the URL.
      
      The next step is to collect information for those ISPs with
      links +10Mbps or higher and the bi-lateral links within the
      region. So if you know of ISPs with:
      
           + more than +10 Mbps of bandwidth to the US
           + bi-lateral links between each other
      
      Please send the information (to me or the list). As before,
      all updates would be posted to APOPs.
      
      For those who are wondering, some background as to why I’m
      doing this, please read below.

      Why?
      ----
      
      APOPs is a APNIC special interest group similar to NANOG in
      the US. At the APRICOT III meeting, the participants
      expressed the need for a list of peering contacts in the
      region. Counter to popular belief, there are several
      “Internet Backbones” in Asia and Pacific. One of them, AP
      Mesh, was created through bi-lateral peering across the
      ocean. It’s popular and many ISPs participating would like
      to expand their peering with other ISPs. To do this, they
      need information on the potential ISP candidates in the
      region, the technical contacts, and routing information.
      Hence, the reasons for gathering this information.
      
      Why Barry?
      ----------
      
      Barry’s being doing this for a while and is not an
      “operator” anymore. All the operators on the list are my
      customer and colleagues. So I can work with each operator to
      insure NDA information remains NDA while getting the
      relevant information into the list.
