CAiX : Internet eXchange Point : Current Status

  1. 1. Internet eXchange Point Current Status Tunis April 2013
  2. 2. History CAIX established in Q2 2002 by MCIT with only two Internet Service Providers (ISPs). CAIX mission is to connect all Class A and B ISPs in Egypt to exchange the local traffic inside Egypt and save their international bandwidth. Today CAIX is running by NTRA and has the whole working Class A & B ISPs in Egypt. 2
  3. 3. 3 Cairo IXP: Current Status  Local IXP, operated by NTRA, no membership fees  6 ISPs connected: (Etisalat Misr, LinkDotNet, NOOR, TEDATA, Vodafonedata and YallaMisr)  BGP peering for IPv4 and IPv6 (4 ISPs peer v6)  Hosting PCH having copy of 30+ ccTLDs, E-root, and L-root.  Hosting Verisign J-root  Max daily exchanged local traffic is 1+ Gbps  No transit B.W. , No CDN
  4. 4. Usage per ISP TEDATA : Max. 651 Mbps ~ STM4 LDN : Max. 607 Mbps ~ STM4 Vodafonedata : Max. 167 Mbps ~ STM1 EtisalatMisr : Max. 113 Mbps ~ STM1 NOOR : Max. 112 Mbps ~ STM1 YallaMisr : Max. 1.17 Mbps IXP Saving more than $1M yearly 4
  5. 5. Daily total local traffic Source http://www.caix.net.eg/index.php/sumexchange-traffic 5
  6. 6. IXP New Services/Locations Hosting global CDN: Services with high B/W usage are welcome to join CAIX: Akamai Google Limelight Facebook Cloudflare BitGravity/Tata Rotana • We been contacted recently by: MediaNova M-Lab BGP peering for international bandwidth providers (Flag,TI,etc.) New IXP in main cities: Alex, Suez, Assuit,Tanta. 6
  7. 7. 7
  8. 8. Impacts Saving cost for international traffic, and local transmission links Improving QoS Backup scenarios Reducing prices New business opportunities (content developers, gaming, domain reg., web hosting,…) During submarine cable lines disruption.. 8
  9. 9. Operation Model Tunis April 2013
  10. 10. IXP New Operation Models (Business) New operation models for CAIX to ensure Neutral, Independent, Self-sustaining operation 1. Outsource the operation only by issuing License 2. Run operation by an Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA)… not-for-profit 3. Maintain the existing model while modifying the current regulations 10
  11. 11. 11 Pros Cons License - 24/7 Support - Ease to expand and deploy of new services -Social impacts (it is business) - Economical impacts - peering will not be for free - 3rd party peering rules - Competition - Uncertain Neutrality ISPA - 24/7 Support - Not-For-Profit (peering free of charge) - No competition (Between ISPs, CDN ??) - No 3rd party rules - Initiation difficulties - Medium Neutrality Gov. - Peering for free of charge - Peering rules based on consensus of members - High Neutrality - No competition - No 24/7 support - Not self-sustainable - Restrict Regulations - Expansion is difficult
  12. 12. Interconnecting IXPs Tunis April 2013
  13. 13. 13 Possible in future??
  14. 14. Possible in future?? 14
  15. 15. Why?? Backup Scenarios (Egypt submarine cable disruption case) Secure Connection (governmental or business) VoIP (Telecom companies don’t like speaking about this) Content (video, peer-to-peer) Social (language, news, religion) Financial (Job opportunities, more content) 15
  16. 16. Already proposed Proposed for the Arab league Didn’t get much attention What about now? 16
  17. 17. IXP New Services/Locations Hosting global CDN (Google, AKAMI, Amazon, Rotana media, CloudFlare.) + M-Lab + Facebook BGP peering for international bandwidth providers (Flag, TI,…etc.) New IXP in main cities: Alex., Suez, Assuit, Tanta … 17
  18. 18. Impacts Saving cost for international traffic, and local transmission links Improving QoS Backup scenarios Reducing prices New business opportunities (content developers, gaming, domain reg., web hosting,…) 18
  19. 19. IXP New Operation Models (Business) New operation models for CAIX to ensure Neutral, Independent, Self-sustaining operation 1. Outsource the operation only by issuing License 2.
