Our project aims to analyze Remote Peering (RP) deployment at Latin American IXPs and investigate its implications to Internet routing. By understanding the RP usage and its impacts on the control and data planes, we expect to provide transparency on which networks are remote at IXPs and help operators to assess the tradeoffs of RP and of exchanging traffic with remotely connected ASes.
Besides, we plan to examine the temporal evolution of RP at IXPs, further understanding its adoption rate and the characteristics of networks using it. We plan to provide a web portal containing reports and analyses about remote interfaces deployment, the prefixes announced via RP, characteristics related to RP performance (i.e., latency), and routing anomalies cases (i.e., detours) caused by remote connections. With this knowledge, we expect operators to better understand the prevalence and consequences of RP at IXPs, thus improving the Internet routing ecosystem.
