The CIX and the NSFNET regionals - a dilemma


We see similiar problems, functional capability for interactive
applications like telnet is MUCH better through the CIX than through
the NSFNet. When "SaltLakeCity" has its normal problems (we've seen
about a dozen in January, and we're not looking really) then it goes
through the roof.

Leveraging off another posting elsewhere, I was wondering how hard it
would be for cisco to change their architecture to have multiple routing
tables and slightly modify their protocol prioritization scheme so that
telnet/rlogin is not just prioritized but goes out a different path
(specifically the CIX path).
