Possible peering with GBLX at Chicago
« on: October 31, 2009, 11:16:06 AM »

Currently I'm using Ashburn tserv. Curiosity prompted me to test the HE tunnel creation to see what tserv is recommended, and the result was Chicago. While I'm aware comcast itself is not going to peer with HE in the forseeable future, I'm curious about GBLX presence in the traceroutes shown below, the first to Chicago tserv, the latter Ashburn. If I read these traces correctly, could HE peer with GBLX in Chicago?

Oh, and I'm guessing somethings in place at Ashburn, due to kiddies DoSing it, thats preventing traceroutes to go through.

Global Crossing is one of HE's transit providers, not a peer and they do connect to Global Crossing in Chicago as well.

I see, so there's no way to eliminate hops to NY and Ashburn before Chicago?

HE would have to look into this. It is a good question though why traffic from Global Crossing in Chicago comes into HE's network via Ashburn instead of Chicago even though HE does have connectivity to Global Crossing in Chicago.
