This isn't really a North American Operational issue, but I couldn't
find a more appropriate list to post this on. Please bear with me.
I do hope that some of the replies would be useful to network operators.
 From what I know, ANS was formed by Merit, IBM and MCI in 1990 to
run the NSFNET backbone. Could somebody update me on the current
status of ANS - i.e. after NSFNETs demise in 1995, did ANS become
independent and does it qualify as an NSP in its own right?
 Is there an equivalent to NANOG for Europe and Asia and is there
an equivalent list which discusses operational issues for these
continents? Pointers appreciated.
 Is there a web page which lists all the public CIXs and NAPs
around the world? Pointers appreciated.
 Some recent threads on NANOG discussed physical layer issues like
SONET, SDH, circuit layout etc. Could somebody point me to
technical papers / articles / books which describe fiber and
copper technology in detail.
