A quick question.
(Q) What percentage of the customer traffic uses the peering links in the
case of a TIER - I service provider?
TIER-I Servier providers can be Sprint, BBN, UUnet, AT&T and others.
I know that it might depend on the service provider(ISP) individually
a/c to peering policies. But an approximate percentage like 40,60,80...
will be helpful. Remember that certain percentage of traffic just doesn't
leave the network -or - remains within the network.
IMP: Assume all the peering traffic is 100% customer traffic ONLY.
BTW, the definition of "peering" being an exchange of traffic between ISPs
without exchange of money.
