RE: Cable & Wireless Maintencance

  • From: Daniel Golding
  • Date: Mon Nov 19 12:52:11 2001

4006 did -  I have no idea what the new owners (Cogent) intend, in that
area. Hopefully they will stick with it. Implimenting a rich community set
like this is a boon to customers, and generally a great learning experience
for the engineers involved. It is also a great troubleshooting tool for NOCs
and engineering departments.  Kudos to C&W for this. Efforts such as this,
show that the concept of "transit as a commodity" is really nonsensical.

If anyone is actually interested in how to do impliment something like this,
let me know. If there is enough interest, perhaps a tutorial on this could
be done at the next NANOG.
