Peering in the LA region?!?:$

CERFnet has a POP in One Wilshire with 2 T3s, soon to be 4.

CERFnet and Los Nettos/CSUnet have a private peering arrangement at two
locations. Other than that, I am not aware of large peering
arrangements in LA, but would welcome such a move.

In the Philadelphia area, there are 3 providers working on the details
of a Frame-relay MLPA-arrangement. We'll be implementing it, then
announcing it and inviting everyone to join. We'll probably include
the SDMS cloud if (as Bell claims) they can gateway Frame PVCs to SDMS.

We're right next to the Pennsauken NAP, so this is for the players who
for whatever reason have no plans to be connected @ the NAP.

But in general, we think it's better to dump traffic locally except for those
who have high-bandwidth connections to elsewhere (providers/exchange
points).

I don't know what the Southern California-area SMDS/Frame situation is like.
Here, usually the larger providers have at least T1 Frame (possibly
multiple T1 Frame connections) or a >= 4mb SMDS connection.

Hi all,
`

with the LA region: I would be interested too. We have facilities there
where we could even colocate. LA is kind of a stepchild of Internet I
guess, and the developing markets there seem to me to justify a presence.
And if we can combine this together into a NAP kind of a thing, I believe
everybody would win.

Please include me in further discussions on the LA region, if you take it
off line.
