Toronto POP
« on: September 21, 2008, 09:57:22 AM »

Does HE have a link to TorIX in the works or planned? Without a link to TorIX having a local tunnelbroker POP provides essentially no incentive for anyone to move existing tunnels or even create new tunnels on the new POP. It would also be very beneficial to anyone using HE for transit.

We are waiting on TORIX to provide a 10GE port.

Yes, anybody considering moving their tunnel to Toronto should wait until our TORIX port is live.

Able to get the port and link up yet?

Poked them some more, and they promised more information for us by Weds. next week, about finalizing the exchange connection.  ;D

Emailed them today since Wednesday came and passed with no update from them.
When there is an update or any kind of information that needs sharing, I'll let you guys know.

Port on the exchange has been allocated for us.
We're ordering the cross-connect right now, and will get peering sessions up ASAP.

FYI: since getting the port live this week, we've been turning up a bunch of IPv4/IPv6 peering. We're far from done, but making progress on getting sessions up.

Yes, I noticed that. My co-lo provider already has a v4 session up and at least one major DSL provider in the area that I'm aware of. At the moment I'm interested in seeing a session turned up with Primus Telecommunications -- AS 6407, currently they have a session with HE at NYIIX.

FYI, I know it is only cosmetic but there are still some missing DNS records for some of the network infrastructure in Toronto...

Code: [Select]
$ traceroute6 www.he.net
traceroute6 to he.net (2001:470:0:76::2) from 2001:470:b01e:3:216:41ff:fe17:6933, 64 hops max, 12 byte packets

Otherwise looking good.

Tracing off the Rogers broadband network in Mississauga (neighboring Toronto), the Toronto POP is actually has the third worst RTT of any North American POP at 45.7ms and the most complicated route with 11 hops.

Looking at the traceroute it would appear to travel through NY before heading back into Toronto.

broquea, able to comment on my request for HE to also turn up a session with Primus @ TorIX?

we sent out emails to all torix participants. we've gotten a lot of replies, but still have to wait on others. i believe this is one of the ones we are waiting on, even after our second mailing.
