Welcome to MAE Chicago/New York, http://www.mae.net/FE/. But M160's and
OC48 ports are expensive, I suspect its overkill for the amount of traffic
that will actually be exchanged there.
I do wonder why most GigE exchange points are still doing single lan
segment peering instead of having a peermaker type service for dynamic
vlan configurations. Manual configuration is slow and a pain, and with
some of them charging you per-vlan what it would cost for a copper
crossconnect, it's no wonder most people don't use them.
