G "The Great (Public vs Private) Peering Debate: Peering at 10Gbps" - Bill
Norton
http://www.ripe.net/ripe/meetings/ripe-50/presentations/ripe50-eix-peering-debate.pdf

Disucssion: Additional Advantages of Public Peering:

5. (VIX) Peering slut (?!): benefit more from using route servers, for
easy management of peering sessions.

6. (AMSIX) Large public peering ports over private connections saves
engineers - you set up the peering once, instead of seting-up multiple
private ones.

7. (DE-CIX) Redundancy - if you have multiple connections on public
peering, and your partners also have multiple connections..
Second port is usually very cheap on most IXPs.
A: This model is about only one location; does not take into consideration
mulitple locations.

8. Cesnet: The costs are not that high in Enurope.
A: I will include those in later version of the spreadsheet.


Discussion: Additional Advantages of Private Peering:

Maurice from Google:
- Over-subscription can be monitored also on the public peering.
- You can use both.

Keith Mithel: Scaling can be a problem for private peerings.

Mike Hughes: People don't have enough back-haul away from the IX.

Malcom, Linx: "tapping" possibility would be known much in advance.

Maurice, Google: Change in the transition practices: put switches instead
of routers into IX.

Mike Hughes: Beware using just one or two routers in a metro, can have BGP
multipathing problems, leading to convergence problems".

The End: best bit now - the T-shirts by Netnod!
