 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?
Yes, they did... and they were bought <sigh> by AOL.
 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.
Ask in comp.dcom.telecom.tech.
