Anatomy of the Internet Peering Disputes

  title={Anatomy of the Internet Peering Disputes},
  author={Siddharth Bafna and Avichal Pandey and Kshitiz Verma},
Internet peering disputes have had an impact on the Internet AS-graph. As a result, the customers of the ASes often suffer because they cannot reach to the all of the Internet. There is a lack of study of the disputes that have taken place so far, even though each dispute is individually well understood. In this paper, we collect data on 26 disputes from from various resources, categorise them in a systemic manner to understand them from geographical and temporal point of views. There are some… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Nash-peering: A new techno-economic framework for internet interconnections
It is argued that Nash-Peering can address the root cause of various types of peering disputes, and constitutes a radical departure from current interconnection practices, providing a broader and more economically efficient set of interdomain relations.
Community connectivity : building the Internet from scratch: annual report of the UN IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity
In this article, we argue that, given that 4 billion people still lack access to the Internet, the traditional model of Internet access provision should not be necessarily considered as the most
Rethinking Routing and Peering in the era of Vertical Integration of Network Functions
Meta-peering is introduced, a term that encompasses automation efforts related to peering – from identifying a list of ISPs likely to peer, to injecting control-plane rules, to continuous monitoring and notifying any violation – one of the many outcroppings of vertical integration procedure which could be offered to the ISPs as a standalone service.
Dynam-IX: a Dynamic Interconnection exchange
Dynam-IX is proposed, a privacy-aware framework that allows network operators to build trust cooperatively and quickly adapt their traffic engineering policies to exploit the rich interconnection opportunities at IXPs, and can establish tens of agreements within a minute, unleashing traffic engineering possibilities, increasing peering port utilization and creating new economic opportunities.
Dynam-IX: a Dynamic Interconnection eXchange
Dynam-IX is proposed, a framework that allows operators to build trust cooperatively and implement traffic engineering policies to exploit the rich interconnection opportunities at IXPs quickly and shows that an AS can establish tens of agreements per minute with negligible overhead for ASes and IXPs.
Development and management of collective network and cloud computing infrastructures
This dissertation investigates models for the financing, deployment, and operation of network and cloud computing infrastructures and proposes a generic model which, in the author's opinion, is suitable, at least, for managing extensible infrastructure.
An Analysis of Link and Node Level Resilience on Network Resilience
The analysis reveals that link placement in networks has a large influence on the resilience and should be considered carefully when designing resilient wired networks, and focuses on the node and link level resilience.
Disaster-resilient communication networks: Principles and best practices
An overview of some of the foundational related work on network resilience is presented, covering topics such as measuring resilience and resilient network architectures, amongst others, and insights into current operational best practices for ensuring the resilience of carrier-grade communication networks are provided.


The Art of Peering: The Peering Playbook
This paper presents tactics that Peering Coordinators have used to obtain peering where they otherwise might not have been able to obtaining peering, and identifies 19 specific maneuvers that represent the “Peering Playbook”, the current “Art” of Peering.
Interconnecting eyeballs to content: a shapley value perspective on isp peering and settlement
This paper analyzes the revenue distribution between ISPs with elastic and inelastic customer demands, and calculates the bilateral payments between ISPs that implement the Shapley revenue, illustrating how ISP revenues are influenced by different demand models.
Anatomy of a large european IXP
A first-of-its-kind and in-depth analysis of one of the largest IXPs worldwide based on nine months' worth of sFlow records collected at that IXP in 2011 suggests that these large IXPs can be viewed as a microcosm of the Internet ecosystem itself and argues for a re-assessment of the mental picture the community has about this ecosystem.
Shining Light on Dark Address Space
A three-year study of the one-sided differences in Internet provider reachability focuses on “dark address space”, or the range of topology accessible from one provider, but unreachable via one or more competitor networks.
On a network creation game
The Nash equilibria of this game are studied, and results suggesting that the "price of anarchy" in this context (the relative cost of the lack of coordination) may be modest are proved.
GENESIS: An agent-based model of interdomain network formation, traffic flow and economics
Interestingly, it is found that the peering openness that maximizes the fitness of different network classes (tier-1, tier-2 and tier-3 providers) closely matches that seen in real-world peering policies.
