Ilker Nadi Bozkurt and Waqar Aqeel and Debopam Bhattacherjee and Balakrishnan Chandrasekaran and Philip Brighten Godfrey and Gregory Laughlin and Bruce M. Maggs and Ankit Singla
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Previous measurement campaigns suggest the following rule of thumb for estimating Internet latency: multiply line-of-sight distance by 2.1, then divide by the speed of light in fiber.  ...  The recent publication of the 'InterTubes' map of long-haul fiber-optic cables in the contiguous United States invites an exciting question: how much faster would the Internet be if routes were chosen  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This research used data from ESnet, which is supported by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy under contract DE-AC02-05CH11231.  ...

The performance of circuit switching in the internet

Pablo Molinero-Fernández, Nick McKeown
2002 Computer communication review  
The motivation for this thesis is our desire to build faster routers and switches to accommodate for the traffic growth in the Internet.  ...  For the past few years, Internet traffic has been doubling every year, and nothing indicates that this growth rate will slow down in the near future.  ...  In this thesis, I recommend a network architecture that uses circuit switching in the core and packet switching in the edges, so as to meet Internet's challenging demands for high aggregate bandwidth and  ...

Web content delivery, monetization, and search [article]

Enric Pujol Gil, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Anja Feldmann
2017
Namely, i) how the Web influences Internet's traffic dynamics, and ii) how the Internet's infrastructure and protocols impair Web usage.  ...  On the other, content monetization relates to obtaining the economic resources needed to deploy such infrastructure, create content, and sustain services.  ...  We investigate Internet connectivity in Chapter §5. Without it, users cannot reach Web content hosted on remote Web servers.  ...

Empirical analysis of the effects and the mitigation of IPv4 address exhaustion [article]

Philipp Richter, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Anja Feldmann
2017
Different approaches to mitigating IPv4 address scarcity in the short and in the long term exist.  ...  In IP version 4, an address is represented by 32 bits in the IPv4 header; hence there is a finite pool of roughly 4B addresses available.  ...  Acknowledgments The last years were certainly some of the most intense, fascinating, and demanding of my life. I had  ...

Revisiting the interplay of inter-domain traffic and routing policies

Thomas Krenc, Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Anja Feldmann
2019
During the transition phase from a research to a commercial-purpose network, most of the crucial changes to protocols, infrastructure, and governance have occurred and continue to shape the Internet today  ...  Further, the manner in which traffic is exchanged between the networks makes it increasingly hard to reason about trends in the Internet.  ...  Acknowledgements This thesis is the final chapter of an intense and rewarding journey.  ...
