Integrated Routing and
Traffic Analysis and Modeling for Internet Peering
by Packet Design
Published 2006, Posted July 2006
Service Providers, Content Providers and large enterprises manage complex sets of Internet peerings that support core services and account for a significant percentage of their network operating costs. Given the critical top and bottom-line importance of Internet services, network engineering departments must conduct ongoing peering analyses to optimize service performance and cost. Until now, network engineers have been handicapped by a lack of comprehensive information and tools to manage their Internet peerings, due to incomplete routing and traffic visibility, and siloed analysis and modeling tools. Packet Design's Route-flow fusion technology offers the industry's most integrated traffic and IGP/BGP routing analysis solution, with monitoring, analysis and modeling capabilities that help network engineers maximize customer satisfaction while economizing on peering costs. Route-flow fusion's comprehensive architecture takes the guess-work out of peering management and provides the basis for sound engineering best practices, leading to more competitive and profitable network operations. This technical brief gives an overview of the evolution of Internet peering analysis and its current limitations, followed by a detailed look at route-flow fusion's peering management analysis capabilities, including specific case study examples from a large Internet Service Provider backbone network.
