The recently-published Nemertes study, Internet Interrupted: Why Architectural Limitations Will Fracture the â€˜Net, includes a fine overview of the Internet, explaining public and private peering, content delivery networks, and overlay networks. It was necessary for the study to cover this ground as it had to correct the mistaken picture of Internet traffic thatâ€™s been foisted off on the regulating public by the MINTS study published by Andrew Odlyzko.
