The Connect Working Group will:

  • Facilitate discussions about interconnection for Internet purposes, covering Layer 1-8
  • Raise awareness in the community about interconnection and the role it plays in the global Internet

  • Monitor and take part in discussions in related working groups, such as the Cooperation Working Group and the Routing Working Group
