And here goes first blog post of 2018. Last few months went busy with some major changes in personal life. :) I looked into Amazon’s India connectivity with various ASNs tonight. Here’s how it looks like. (Note: Jump to bottom most to skip traces and look at the summary data). Traceroutes Amazon India to Vodafone India traceroute to 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 ec2-52-66-0-128.ap-south-1.compute.amazonaws.com (184.108.40.206) 21.861 ms ec2-52-66-0-134.
One of frequent email and contact form message I get my blog is about available content networks in India and where one can peer. There are certain content networks in India and of course most of the content networks have open peering policy and are usually happy with direct inter-connection (we call as “peering”) with the ISP networks (often referred to as “eyeball networks”). Some of these networks have a backbone which connects back to their key datacenter locations on their own circuits via Singapore/Europe, some other have simply placed their caching server where cache fill happens over IP transit.
A blog post dedicated to BSNL AS9829. It just tried so hard to become as irrelevant as it can from everyone’s life (and that doesn’t excludes me now). So what really is BSNL btw? A Govt of India telco sitting at a extensive fiber of over 600,000 Kms across the country (staying just unused and unavailable for anyone’s use!) A telco which has an extensive last mile copper (which is very poorly maintained and barely works!
And I am back from Malaysia after attending APRICOT 2014. It was a slightly slow event this time as less people came up due to change of location from Thailand to Malaysia. But I kind of enjoy the APRICOT in start of year. :) It has been quite sometime when I blogged. After getting into Spectranet I got relatively more busy along with bit of travelling to Delhi NCR which has been taking lot of time.
Today I spotted some routes from Amazon AWS Cloud services - AS16509 in Indian tables. AS16509 was originating prefixes while sitting in downstream of Tata-VSNL AS4755 and Reliance AS18101. I almost missed Amazon AWS's announcement on their blog about Indian PoPs for their DNS service - Route53 and CDN service - Cloudfront. New PoP’s of Amazon in India are at Mumbai and Chennai and I see pretty much consistent BGP announcements to Tata and Reliance from these locations.
