I am doing some research on connecting in Miami. Does anyone have an
opinion on how well L3 Xroads is doing there?
Is the L3 Xroads much more than just a novel way to sell transit? I know
L3 try to promote it as a "peering point" a-like, but I'm not convinced.
My understanding of it is that people who want to be at the datacenter just
for inter-customer communication can do so and be charged less then those
who want to purchase full transit.
In practice I don't know how many people actually do this (which limits
its usefulness greatly). I'd love for level3-southfield(detroit) to turn
into a place where local michigan people all drop a circuit into and
keep traffic out of chicago.
