Surviving the Internet Default Free Zone

How the Global Internet Really Works

The Internet exists as a complex ecosystem of interconnected resources and specialized identifiers. Understanding how Internet Service Providers - both large and small - share their internal and their customers' resources is a dark art that comparatively few in the industry gain expertise in. To fully realize its power is a skill that is forged over time and through experience.

In this webinar, we will take apart terms, such as AS, BGP, LOAs, IXPs, RADB, transit, peering, announcements, prefixes, filters... We will explain the subtle differences in how interconnection happens, what details are essential for each entity to share, how they are shared, and why we do things the way we do them.
