Section I - Connecting to the Edge of the Internet

Excerpts from The Internet Peering Playbook: Connecting to the Core of the Internet

Almost all attachments to the Internet are made at the edge. We will begin our exploration here.

In section I, we introduce the “Internet Transit” service, how it is offered, priced, and metered. We exercise these definitions with a set of "Internet Transit Playbook" tactics that some of the smartest peering coordinators in the world have used to derive the maximum value from the Internet Transit service for the minimum cost. While many of these tactics are not recommended, they have been used in the field, they demonstrate the Internet Transit service, and they exercise the lexicon. In my peering workshops and consulting engagements, the Internet Transit Playbook chapter has proven to be very educational.

By the end of this section you will understand the Internet Transit service.

Section I includes the following chapters:

Chapter 2 – Internet Transit

Chapter 3 – The Internet Transit Playbook
