This project seeks to achieve a systematic approach to internal BGP (iBGP) mesh design within an Autonomous System (AS). These meshes are an integral part of the operation of any large-scale network on the Internet. A good iBGP design within an AS is essential to take optimal advantage of the available paths.
The general objective of the project is to apply a systematic approach to the analysis of BGP traces to different reference cases, using the techniques previously developed, and incorporating other approaches, based on accessibility and distance to the different Autonomous Systems that make up the Internet, which today exceeds 70,000, and propose a methodology for Internet operators to optimize their networks. The project will seek a theoretical foundation for this behavior and connections with other existing lines of research.
The main impact of the proposal is to support the design of regional transit networks with methodological tools, derived from formal models.
Indeed, the methodology and set of tools developed makes available to operators optimized results that do not depend on acquiring infrastructure and/or additional and proprietary software, but on a methodologically assisted design to make the best use of standardized technology and ensure better access to the Internet by users in the region.
